Evo Energy Technologies reduces costs in Cardina Life retrofit

Evo Energy Technologies reduces costs in Cardina Life retrofit
July 21, 2017

The recent retrofitting of a cogeneration plant has helped maximise energy efficiency and increase cost savings at Cardinia City Council’s Cardinia Life facility.

Located in Pakenham in Melbourne’s outer south east, the aquatic and recreation centre was previously responsible for a massive 26% of the Council’s total emission profile of 2,325 tonnes.

To reduce this, the Council engaged Evo Energy Technologies to provision a cogeneration plant.

With the aid of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Evo Energy Technologies installed a Miraclegen MC247N-SC CHP unit with an electrical output of 135kW and thermal output of 210kW.

As a result, the total project is anticipated to save:

• $111,000 per year in energy costs
• 1,224 tonnes in greenhouse gas emissions per year (or the equivalent annual emissions of over 300 cars).

By reducing the operational cost of the facility, the Council reduces costs to ratepayers while also significantly reducing the centre’s carbon emissions.

In operation, the cogeneration plant can be remotely monitored with optimal control easily achieved via ComAp’s Intellimonitor and Websupervisor systems. This means that the system can be closely monitored from any computer or smartphone device, from anywhere in the world.

Commenting on the project, a statement from Evo Energy Technologies explains “there are many examples where timely financial funding for new builds or retrofits have enabled local government and commercial enterprises to undertake a green and sustainable building projects. 

“Financial constraints are often one of the only reasons for a project being slow off the starting gun.”
