News: Powerstar installed in London landmarks


Rotherham manufacturer, EMSc UK Ltd, has installed their market leading voltage optimisation system, Powerstar, into the Palace of Westminster and London City Hall.

The Powerstar system is the only voltage optimisation system wholly designed and manufactured in the UK and works by reducing the the voltage supplied by the National Grid.

The Palace of Westminster is the home of Big Ben and the House of Commons and the results of the installation will be monitored over the next few months.

The installation of Powerstar at London City Hall, which was designed by leading architect Sir Norman Foster to maximise energy efficiency, has resulted in annual energy consumption savings of 13.6%.

Dr Alex Mardapittas, managing director at EMSc (UK) Ltd, said: "The Greater London Authority has invested extensively in a range of measures to make buildings across London increasingly more energy efficient. The installation of Powerstar has added to these efforts and is helping cut these buildings' carbon footprint and electricity consumption."

The Palace of Westminster and London City Hall join other iconic sites such as the Welsh Assembly, House of Keys, Western Australia Parliament and London Stock Market in benefiting from the installation of Powerstar, generally achieves average savings of 12-15%, improves the life expectancy of electrical equipment, and enhances power quality by reducing harmonics.

Dr Mardapittas added: "As a company we pride ourselves on delivering an engineering solution that is individually tailored to suit the needs of each customer. With unrivalled results in energy savings and 100% reliability for our Powerstar units in over 4500 installations, we are proud to be helping the GLA to reduce both energy consumption and carbon emissions."
