News: Powerstar's manufacturing showcase


Manufacturing companies in Sheffield and Rotherham are being invited to visit two local companies to view Powerstar's energy saving technology installed on their sites, that is helping reduce their electricity bills and carbon footprint.

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. It can actively reduce electrical energy consumption by an average of 12-15% of consumed electricity.

It was developed by Dr Alex Mardapittas at EMSc (UK) Ltd, which employs over 100 people and has manufactured more than 4,000 systems installed in 15 countries. Having grown up in Rotherham, the company expanded from its premises at Templeborough and relocated to St Paul's Developments' Smithy Wood Business Park in Sheffield, increasing manufacturing capacity by 500%.

In conjunction with Powerstar, Swann Morton in Sheffield and Newburgh Precision in Rotherham are opening their facilities to allow other manufacturing companies in the region to take a "behind the scenes" look at the voltage optimisation systems in operation, on site.

Attendees will also benefit from a short presentation from representatives of Swann Morton and Newburgh Precision about their experiences following the installation of the solution. Powerstar representatives will also be on hand to answer any questions relating to the technology.

Nick Lee, marketing manager at Powerstar, said: "Aimed at senior managers responsible for managing energy costs, we are delighted to be working with current clients to showcase real life voltage optimisation installations to other companies in the region. There is no better testimonial than a satisfied customer."

The installation tours will take place on February 11 at Swan Morton at 10am and on February 17 at Newburgh Precision at 1:30pm.
