Stephen Alcock, EHSE Manager at PYM Wildsmith said,

“The funding provided valuable information regarding equipment use and power loadings, both daily and weekly. The data presented will become a valuable part of our costings process in relation to energy used. We have contacted our compressor supplier who will be able to ‘tweak’ the on and off load parameters on our compressors to reduce our electricity usage and the wear and tear of compressor.”
