Adding Inverters to a Logistics and Warehousing Facility

Large logistics and warehousing facilities can save money by installing ABB inverters from IDS, up to as much as 44% per year off the energy bill!

We have recently provided a free energy efficiency motor audit at a large warehouse and logistics plant in Milton Keynes, with a range of air handling and chiller compressor units. We have calculated that by installing inverters on these units a saving of over £130,000 per year at current electricity rates.

Electricity rates have risen by 50% in the last 5 years and will only keep rising, so the continuous saving possibilities will also increase.

Once these inverters are installed this customer will see a return on their investment immediately and payback of the cost of commissioning inverters within 2 years.

Time is of the essence! The sooner these inverters are fitted the sooner they will start saving on their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint.
