Leeds NHS Motor Control Savings

Thursday 19th of November 2009

Savings in excess of £22,000.00 per annum through application of intelligent motor controls. Payback of less than 20 months!

Leeds NHS are now saving in excess of £22,000.00 after Fairburns Group (Hull) recently implemented the latest intelligent fixed speed motor controls.

With a complete install cost of £38,000.00 the expected payback will be less than 21 months!

Delivered on time and on budget Fairburns Group provided an energy control solution for Leeds NHS mental health primary care trust. As part of their ‘Carbon Reduction Plan’ it was essential to take con-trol of their fixed speed motor energy wastage. Fair-burns provided a full schedule of assets across 40 NHS sites and identified almost 200 motors with inef-ficiencies. These motor ranged in size from small un-der counter fridges all the way through to 30kW AHU motors.

A carefully calculated proposal was put forward to the NHS which highlighted potential overall savings of £22,384.00 per annum. At this rate of saving, the equipment would pay for itself in approximately 20 months and reduce the NHS carbon footprint by a further 101.5 tonnes per year. The Envirostart prod-uct also qualifies for ‘Enhanced Capital Allowance’ which further provides tax relief and a cash flow boost for the NHS.
