Client: Fujitsu

Title: Chiller Upgrade

Saving: £7,220 p.a.

E2 Services were appointed by Fujitsu to help develop and manage a robust refurbishment programme, designed to achieve significant carbon and cost reductions throughout the Birmingham UK headquarters site.

Offering a complete turnkey approach E2 Services managed the chiller replacement project, ensuring limited disruption to usual operations. The old chillers were decommissioned and the chilled water system drained. After removing the old chillers from the roof, new chiller units were lifted into position. All crane work and pipework connections were completed over a single weekend and the new chiller was refilled and commissioned ready for operation on the Monday morning. 

Performance since project commissioning has resulted in notable energy improvements. Initial data analysis of shoulder months before and after project completion shows 91% energy savings on the chillers. 

In order to enable continuous performance monitoring, aM&T has been installed on the chiller sub-meters, allowing ongoing analysis of meter profiles and real time consumption tracking.

The graph below shows monthly chiller consumption. Significant performance improvements are evident: initial data analysis of shoulder months before and after project completion shows 91% energy savings on the chillers.

"E2 Services were first appointed through competitive tender to undertake the asset replacement exercise at Fujitsu Solihull. From the start I was impressed with their proactive approach to the project & their attention to detail. They really focussed on ensuring we got the best savings from our plant upgrades and clearly demonstrated the savings using their automated monitoring system. E2 Services added value to this project & I would recommend them for any energy improvement project."
