- Powerdrive 600KVA integration
- Annual energy savings of €42,000
Bonduelle entrusts the regulation of cold production to DV GROUP. The Bonduelle Péronne site (80) has to cope with variable production and cooling requirements at different times throughout the year. Bonduelle’s envisaged solution was to double the motorisation of its compressors to 400KW/1500tr in high periods and 250KW/1500tr in low periods. At the request of Bonduelle, and after an initial discussion, we proposed a two-stage approach: first, analysis and mapping of its current process; second, the implementation of a solution with a commitment to results and measurements verifying the solution. The energy assessment, as well as the machine and functional assessment carried out on a 400KW compressor allowed us to confirm potential energy savings. We proposed and implemented a Powerdrive 600KVA variable speed drive, with a return on investment commitment, which provided verified measurements over a period of two months. Bonduelle has now extended this solution to its compressors with Leroy-Somer Powerdrive 600T and 400T variable speed drives. Bonduelle achieved an annual energy saving of €42,000. Investments were amortised over 8 months. Additional gains were observed for: - reactive energy - mechanical wear: compartments no longer overhauled every 15,000 hours - flexibility of the process - overspeed capacity at 60 Hz Beyond the expectations of our customers, we offer new energy saving solutions adapted to each process.
