Last summer we invested in a new air-conditioning system for our factory which is located in the municipality of Ii, Finland. An equivalent system has now also been installed at our Sastamala factory.
The installation work for the new equipment has been completed for Sastamala, and the factory’s indoor air has got considerably better ever since. Based on the experience gained with Ii, the energy savings will also become evident quite quickly. The system at Ii factory has now been operational for a year, and has decreased energy consumption within the factory by more than 10%.
What explains the decrease in energy consumption is the fact that the new air conditioning system not only removes impure air from the production process, but also recovers the waste heat that is generated by the production machinery.
“When both air-conditioning systems are taken into account, FinnProfiles has invested more than half a million euros during the past year in the energy efficiency of its factories.”
The air-conditioning system that has been installed in Sastamala differs from the one in Ii only in its size and efficiency levels. This is explained by the fact that the air-conditioned cubic volume in Sastamala is more than double the processed air volume in the Ii factory. In addition, the Sastamala factory has two separate spaces which need air-conditioning.
When both air-conditioning systems are taken into account, FinnProfiles has invested more than half a million euros during the past year in the energy efficiency of its factories. This investment has also significantly promoted the well-being of the company’s employees – thanks to the improvement in indoor-air quality.
FinnProfiles is a participant in the energy efficiency agreement which has been organized by Motiva. The participants aim to reduce their energy consumption by 7.5% by the year 2025.
