EMSc (UK) Ltd, manufacturer of the Star® range of energy saving solutions, recently completed the successful installation of its award-winning Powerstar voltage optimisation system at two of London’s most iconic landmarks, resulting in immediate savings in energy consumption and a substantial reduction in electricity costs and CO2 emissions.

The company is honoured and proud to announce that Powerstar has been installed into the Palace of Westminster, home of Big Ben and the House of Commons, where results are being monitored over the next few months.

In addition, the installation of Powerstar at London City Hall, which was designed by leading architect Sir Norman Foster to maximise energy efficiency, has resulted in annual energy consumption savings of 13.6%.

Commenting on the installations Dr Alex Mardapittas, EMSc (UK) Ltd managing director and designer of Powerstar said: “The Greater London Authority has invested extensively in a range of measures to make buildings across London increasingly more energy efficient. The installation of Powerstar has added to these efforts and is helping cut these buildings’ carbon footprint and electricity consumption.”

The Palace of Westminster and London City Hall join other iconic sites such as the Welsh Assembly, House of Keys, Western Australia Parliament and London Stock Market in benefiting from the installation of Powerstar, which is a unique triple wound system with a patented design that actively reduces a considerable percentage of electrical energy consumption. The system generally achieves average savings of 12-15%, improves the life expectancy of electrical equipment, and enhances power quality by reducing harmonics.

Dr Mardapittas added: “As a company we pride ourselves on delivering an engineering solution that is individually tailored to suit the needs of each customer. With unrivalled results in energy savings and 100% reliability for our Powerstar units in over 4500 installations, we are proud to be helping the GLA to reduce both energy consumption and carbon emissions.”

Powerstar is fully designed and manufactured in the UK and is exported worldwide to countries including Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Malta and South Africa.

Independent tests performed by RWE npower has confirmed that Powerstar is the best Voltage Optimisation/VPO system available in the market today – it is better able to save energy, reduced harmonics and improve power factor than imported Japanese VPO systems.

Said Dr Mardapittas: “Powerstar is a great British product, fully designed and manufactured in the UK for the world market.”
