Case Study: global cement manufacturer

Providing greater insight into company operations through distributed energy solutions

Centrica worked with a large cement company, which has operations across 50 countries, to find a solution that would allow their plant managers to have full visibility of the performance of their critical machines.

We outlined the solutions available and recommended the installation of equipment that would provide greater insight into the company’s operations. We installed our Panoramic Power wireless sensor technology to measure energy use and pinpoint consumption across different equipment, buildings and plants.

This analysis identified a conveyor motor was not working correctly, which in turn was creating a bottle neck in the process. Fixing this saved the client over £200,000 annually at just one location.

Our data also showed that energy was being consumed unnecessarily across several buildings and plants outside of working hours. By highlighting this, we achieved the client an additional saving of almost £8,000 a year.
