Stay laser-focused on optimization

Continuous optimization of the industrial compressed air system is an integral part of the strategy for many of the plants we work with at Enersize. Here’s what some of our customers are saying.

Data-driven leakage management at Ringnes brewery

Ringnes AS is the leading beverage brand in Norway. The brewery, which employs 900 people and covers an area of 77 000m3, produces beer and soft drinks. The facility is fitted with two separate compressed air systems. These supply approx. 40m3/min and support both the production lines and logistics facility. Ringnes is part of the Carlsberg Group.

The introduction of a global sustainability agenda for the Carlsberg Group has influenced the direction for Ringnes when it comes to energy savings and the focus on cutting carbon emissions. ”The introduction of the ZERO carbon footprint agenda changed the mindset around utilities like compressed air,“ explains Marius Fagernes, Project Manager at Ringnes.

Ringnes is also looking at its compressor capacity. “If we can better align our compressor capacity to our compressed air demand, we see a huge potential for further energy cost savings. It is important to continuously optimize the compressed air system to meet the changing needs in the production line,” says Fagernes. “We would never have reached this point where we are actively evaluating our compressor capacity if we didn’t have the right data. This is where Enersize has helped us enormously,” concludes Marius Fagernes.

Protan increases asset uptime by optimizing
compressed air system with Enersize data

At Protan AS, Drammen the risk of failure of the machines is kept as low as possible with a continuous focus on preventive maintenance. The objective is to ensure that the availability of the machines is not restricted, which requires addressing both the supply and demand sides of the system and how the two interact in terms of flow and power.

Protan is a Norwegian industry group that is a world leader in membrane technology. The firm develops and supplies membranes, roof systems, ventilation systems, and technical textiles. At the 5,000 m2 Protan facility in Drammen, the compressed air system is divided into low and high-pressure nets with primary compressor capacity at 7 m3/min.

Tom Lillemoen, Technical Manager at Protan AS in Drammen, estimates that the facility is seeing considerable year-on-year cost savings due to the continuous focus on maintenance.

Lillemoen elaborates: “It is my estimate that Protan AS, Drammen has increased machine uptime and availability by 10 to 15 percent with proper maintenance of which 2 to 3 percent can be directly attributed to the effective leakage management in the industrial compressed air system.”

And he continues: “I recommend partnering with a professional auditor who can analyze the data from the audit and survey, and who can also advise how to best prioritize repairs and conduct preventive maintenance so that you know exactly which spare parts to retrofit. This way you can optimize machine uptime and availability. After all, without compressed air production stops,” concludes Tom Lillemoen.
