RUMM were engaged by Amtico at their UK manufacturing facility for a number of reasons:
• legislation requirements to fulfil,
• compliance as part of their ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard, and;
• the need maintain cost control of their energy use.
The site accepted the recommendations coming out of by the RUMM CAP to address a number of energy saving technical projects, and install a range of sub-meters and an aM&T system to identify and generate more savings. Amtico contracted RUMM to work in partnership with them over 5 years to continually reduce their energy consumption/cost.
RUMM’s resources contribute support and expertise to the partnership to help guide savings through data analysis, projects manage energy savings initiatives and to attend site regularly to monitor and report progress
In addition to meeting the brief of compliance to legislation and standards, the energy savings target of £ 1.1m over 5 years of engagement is on schedule. RUMM is now engaged with the USA manufacturing facilities to evaluate opportunity to replicate this service.
