Case Studies

Each case study  consists of an in-depth examination of a customer implementation. Instead of just reporting on data, we try to tell you the real story of each deployment. As a result, you will gain a clear understanding of what energy management issues we discovered, what we did to tackle them and what was the out come and learning.

We hope these cases will help you assess your own situation and what kind of assistance you might need in an energy management issue.

Energy Management at a Light Industrial Facility
Download PDF (381KB)
Fundy Linen Services (FLS) is a large industrialized laundry facility servicing the hospitals in southern New Brunswick. When the FLS plant was designed nearly twenty-five years ago, the philosophies of “reduce, reuse, and recycle” were
incorporated into every aspect of its construction and ultimate use. From the use of water e€cient equipment such as tunnel washers and other automated systems, to a heat reclaiming system, the location of water pipes in hot waste water ducts and the recycling of nal rinse water into the next wash, FLS’s plant operations and practices represent both resource and financial economies. SHIFT was contacted by FLS to see if further optimization in energy e€ciency for this modern facility can be achieved, what measures needed to be taken and how much energy can be save out of the measures.
