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

Swann Morton in Sheffield and Newburgh Precision in Rotherham, are both benefitting from the installation of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system, which addresses the imbalance between the high voltage levels that are typically delivered to a site by the National Grid, and the voltage actually required for optimum operation of electrical equipment. The excess energy – on average 22V – is not only wasteful and expensive but overvoltage can also potentially damage or shorten the lifetime of equipment

In conjunction with Powerstar, Swann Morton and Newburgh Precision 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.

Speaking about the events, Nick Lee, marketing manager at Powerstar commented, “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 11th February at Swan Morton in Sheffield at 10am and on 17th February at Newburgh Precision at 1:30pm. Both will last for one hour.

Bookings can be made by visiting the Powerstar website, by calling 0114 2576 200 or by emailing
