VANCOUVER, June 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSX-V: SSC) has installed its energy efficiency products across one of the largest car manufacturing campuses in the UK, saving upwards of 525,000 kWh per year. The premier British car manufacturer is already an industry leader in sustainable business practices. The Smartcool project is part of their commitment to reduce its carbon emissions, successfully cutting 335 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Work with the car manufacturer began in 2013 when Smartcool ran a pilot project in one of their testing facilities. The pilot project showed a 21% reduction in the energy consumption of two chillers over a four-week test period, driving the customer to pursue wider application of Smartcool's technology across their estate.
Smartcool's ECO3 and ESM are now installed on the air conditioning units in ten different facilities near Birmingham, UK. The ECO3 and ESM are optimizing the compressor operation in a wide variety of air conditioning systems ranging from large screw chillers to small inverter-driven split systems.
"Our work with this customer represents a major accomplishment as we have brought another internationally renowned brand on board and delivered our energy efficiency products to their largest property," says George Burnes, President and CEO of Smartcool. "This project has offered us a fantastic opportunity to showcase our technology and our in-house expertise in project management, solution design, installation and commissioning. Our UK team has delivered a world class project, demonstrating our ability to meet the needs of top tier customers."
Steven Martin, Executive Vice President of Smartcool continues, "We are looking forward to leveraging this exceptional project into additional work through 2014, both within this car manufacturer's considerable portfolio and with new customers. This project offers a compelling example of the caliber of work we deliver to our customers, and the spectacular results we can achieve."
