The client bones about 42,000 tonnes of pork annually at its Wetherill Park facility, and employs more than 450 people. BE Campbell boasts an impressive array of premium quality meat products that it supplies to supermarkets, restaurants, butchers, food service, wholesale and retail markets. Product is sourced from multiple regions across Australia destined for both domestic and export markets.
Recognising our 15 years of experience in energy auditing and strong process engineering background, BE Campbell engaged Advitech’s environmental team to assist with its application for CTIP funding.
Advitech completed a technical study of the proposed replacement of an electric steam boiler, plus an evaluation of energy-saving opportunities for refrigeration and lighting at the Wetherill Park pork-boning operation. The technical study was used successfully by BE Campbell to obtain a CTIP grant.
Following the success in gaining CTIP funding, Advitech was then engaged to analyse the energy consumption and production volumes before and after project implementation.
Following successful installation of the new natural gas-fired steam boiler and upgrade of the refrigeration plant, we conducted a measurement and verification (M&V) report to prove to AusIndustry that the projects had in fact achieved the targeted energy savings.
Advitech’s team was ideally placed to complete the analysis, as they had accumulated vast experience in energy auditing and reporting from more than 50 clients in numerous industry sectors. Our energy-auditing professionals are accredited by the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH) and the federal government Energy Efficiency Opportunity (EEO) and National Greenhouse Gas Reporting (NGERS) programs.
Recently, two Advitech Group personnel, Micah Bell and Jim Kelty, successfully achieved the internationally recognised Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP) accreditation.
Working closely with BE Campbell, Advitech analysed natural gas, electricity consumption and production volumes. This required regression analyses of production versus energy consumption and temperature versus energy consumption. As is often necessary in M&V analyses, adjustments were required to allow for variances in a number of factors so a true comparison could be made between pre and post-project energy consumption.
