Supporting customers’ sustainability goals

Sustainability is an integral part of the strategy for many of the plants we work with at Enersize. Accurate data about the industrial compressed air system is an essential foundation for documenting progress towards achieving these goals. Here’s what some of our customers are saying:

”The emphasis placed on efficient industrial operations and CO2 emissions has changed the mindset around industrial compressed air and requires us to operate in a way that is both sustainable and financially sound,“ explains Helge Skarbø, Maintenance Manager at TINE SA in Ålesund in Norway.

Towards zero emissions in 2025 at TINE

The TINE Group is one of Norway’s largest food companies and is a full-scale supplier of dairy products with well-known brands. TINE is owned by 10,120 dairy farmers and is organized as a cooperative association.

Helge Skarbø, Maintenance Manager at TINE, explains: ”My advice is to start with an audit to get the best data foundation for making the right decision about next steps. After our initial audit of the facility in 2006, we decided to conduct annual leakage detection surveys and repair projects to maintain our compressed air system in optimal condition for the production lines.”

To consistently meet customer expectations for documentation towards sustainable industrial operations, TINE conforms not only to the quality management standard ISO 9001 but also to the trusted brand assurance platform FSSC 22000 for the control of food safety risks.

”With customers at the core of our focus and management philosophy of continual improvement to our compressed air system and leakage management, data and documentation from Enersize play a vital role in our certifications process,” concludes Helge Skarbø.
