Cleantech grants to upgrade pumps

New grants have been awarded to upgrade pumping and related equipment as part of the Federal Government’s Clean Technology investment program

Longwarry Food Park has received a grant of $495,558 to upgrade pumps, compressors and motors as part of a  $991,116 program.

Longwarry Food Park will replace its existing milk powder separation process with a more energy efficient filtration system at its manufacturing site in Longwarry, Victoria. Additionally, it will replace three motors in the ammonia compressors as well as install a heat exchange process to use recovered heat for its cream cheese manufacturing process. The project is expected to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of the site by 9% and will result in savings of $246,000 in energy costs per year.

Simplot has received a grant of $212,333 to upgrade pumps, compressors and motors as part of a  $637,000 program.

Simplot will install a new stand-alone Mycom 2520 bare shaft compressor to replace the existing inefficient compound compressor in the Mycom plant room. In addition it will install a new Mycom 200L VSD controlled screw compressor package to cater for higher methanol loads, and install a variable head pressure control (VHPC) logic system in the Mycom plant room.

The project is expected to reduce the site wide carbon emissions intensity by 31% and will result in savings of $96,000 in energy (electricity) costs per year and total cost savings of $106,656, per annum with the additional savings coming from reduced maintenance costs.
