Voltis, our voltage optimisation system, has been installed in four locations across Redbridge Council as part of a programme of energy efficiency measures implemented by the authority. Following installation the voltage of each location dropped by up to 25Volts.
This reduction had an instant and positive effect on lighting, as council Group Manager (Environment) John Mitchinson explained: “We had a problem with 10 to 15 lamps blowing a day, which has ceased. They are no longer stressed by high voltage and a surge in current when switched on. Poor lighting effects productivity of staff and Voltis has delivered an immediate improvement for us.”
“As a public body we have to lead the way in terms of our own use of energy in order to encourage others to do the same,” he said. “We received a number of competitive bids for the voltage optimisation project. Marshall-Tufflex’s price was the most advantageous and the company came with good references from other customers. We also required a system that could be applied across our sites and I was impressed that Marshall-Tufflex is not standing still on the technological front.”
Nine Voltis units, ranging from 100Amps to 400Amps, were specified for the project.
