As a member of the Schulte Group, BSM benefits from its 135+ years of experience in the shipping industry.
BSM is fully committed to protecting the environment and engaged in reducing identified environmental impacts on the marine environment as well as on land.
It is within this context that it has searched for the best solution that would reduce electricity consumption and CO2 emissions at its Headquarters in Cyprus.
After analysis of the onsite consumption and voltage profile, the Powerstar team recommended the installation of a Powerstar 300kVA voltage optimisation system at Hanseatic House, Limassol, with a guaranteed minimum saving in electricity consumption of 9.6%.
The Powerstar unit was installed with a bypass switch and the savings have been measured by switching the voltage optimisation system in and out of use.
SAVINGS AND BENEFITS
- Energy consumption savings: 10.1%
- Reduction in CO2 emissions: 43.95 tonnes
