Market leading voltage optimisation system Powerstar, has been successfully installed at TenCate Grass Middle East, part of Dutch multi-national Royal TenCate, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). 

As a leading global manufacturer of solutions for the protection of people and their environment, TenCate actively sought an appropriate energy saving technology to implement as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility to reduce overall energy consumption and impact on the environment.

As with all potential customers, Powerstar engineers carried out an in-depth site analysis survey to ascertain the guaranteed savings for achievable for TenCate from the installation of voltage optimisation. Results from the survey identified minimum savings of 6.8% would be made, once installed however, the Powerstar system achieved annual electricity consumption savings of 8.7%.

Economic growth across the UAE has led to a substantial increase in energy consumption levels. Trends highlight the region as having one of the world’s highest electricity consumption per capita, and estimates indicate that the domestic demand for power will more than double by 2020.

Voltage optimisation systems discreetly optimise the incoming voltage to ensure it is in-line with the electrical needs of each building, providing not only significant savings on electricity consumption and costs, but also reduced carbon emissions and lower wear and tear to onsite equipment, machinery and appliances.

Dr. Alex Mardapittas, managing director at Powerstar commented, “We are pleased to see such positive results from the TenCate installation. As a company we continue to increase our presence in the UAE, a very important market for us. We are currently working on a number of new and exciting projects in the territory, which we look forward to announcing in the near future.”
