News: Greek deal for EMSc


Rotherham-based energy consultancy, EMSc (UK) Limited, has secured their first export deal in Greece.

The Templeborough company recently completed the successful installation of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system at a branch of a leading fast food chain, Goody's, in Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city.

EMS Cyprus division was initially commissioned to assess the Goody's Sykies store for the suitability of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system. Following the installation, a 7.87% reduction on total electricity consumption was achieved resulting in a significant annual cost saving.

Powerstar also delivers savings in the maintenance and replacement costs of site based equipment as a result of matching the voltage more closely to the original design characteristics. The fast food chain has also reduced its carbon footprint by using less energy.

The voltage supplied in Greece is generally lower than in the UK - 232V in the Goody's store – which means that an equivalent store in the UK could achieve even greater savings in energy costs and improved savings in carbon emissions, as the voltage supplied is closer to 242V. With double figure increases in energy prices being announced this could result in significant savings for UK based fast food chains.

Kyriacos Michael, business development manager at EMS Cyprus, said: "The savings at Goody's Sykies have provided the restaurant with lowered electricity bills and reduced the store's impact on the environment.

"It is becoming increasingly important for large companies to use technologies like Powerstar voltage optimisation systems as a part of their overall carbon reduction strategy in order to lead the way to a greener future."
