OUR 2017 FINALISTS
Bosch Rexroth - Offshore Wind Farm Piling Template
Bosch Rexroth introduced simultaneous piling of the four piles for each wind turbine on the customer’s template, saving time and introducing unprecedented accuracies beyond the reach of traditional methods. A bespoke precision heavy duty electrohydraulic subsea drive and control system was developed with enhanced capability with superior connectivity and control from the commissioning vessel’s cabin. Significant reductions in time and costs were achieved during the installation and deployment programme with no impact to operational safety.
Danfoss Variable Speed Drives used to cut multiplex cinema energy costs by £1.2 million per year
A leading multiplex cinema operator with 68 UK sites wanted to cut energy costs and reduce environmental impact. Installing Danfoss drives allowed the motors to run at the exact speed necessary to meet the current demand on the air-handling units (AHUs). This means that, for most of the time, they operate well below their maximum speed - cutting energy usage by 12%, reducing CO2 emissions by around 7,000 tonnes with savings of £1.2 million per year for the cinema operators.
