Warehouse Energy Saving – Case Study

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 for Lockcraft Electrical at Movianto, a large warehouse and logistics plant in Bedford, in this instance we looked at the air handling units. We calculated that by installing inverters on these units, there is a potential to save over £17,000 per year at current electricity rates.  Electricity rates have risen by 50% in the last 5 years and will only keep rising, so the savings potential will also increase.

These inverters are being installed by Lockcraft Electrical, who have been using inverters from IDS for several years now.  Their customer will see a return on their investment in less than 6 months.

Below is the excerpt from the free energy survey showing the energy and cost savings potentials:

Warehouse Energy Saving – Case Study

By installing an inverter to an air handling unit, we can slow the motor to the desired speed to achieve the desired air flow, whilst reducing energy consumption and saving on expensive electric bills. You only need to reduce the speed of the AHU motor by 20% to achieve a 50% energy saving. This is cube law, more information regarding cube law, which is applicable to motors on fans and pumps can be found in the cube law area of our website, click here. If you need clarification regarding cube law please contact one of our engineers on 0115 944 1036 or email [email protected]
