Using results from energy savings carried out on behalf of DETR, the following average savings are possible:

  • Steam distribution: 8%
  • Steam generation: 7%
  • Total: 15%

Taking a typical annual fuel bill to generate steam of £200,000, these figures imply that average savings of £30,000 / year could be achieved.

Resultant savings in reduced water, effluent and water treatment chemicals not included.

Bearing in mind that these savings are a reduction in overhead, they have a direct impact on your profit.

Steam consumption is monitored - then through Steam System Services we identify areas of improvement (inline with your resources and budget) in your plant and help you to implement them.
