Case Study: Impress Metal Packaging Ltd (Now part of the Ardagh Group)

Impress installed 34 Airius fan units into their factory to save on heating costs and their investment was repaid 3 times over in the first winter they were installed.

Project Parameters & Influencing Factors

Oil prices dropped by an average of 9.5% in 08/09 compared to the previous winter period 07/08. The mean temperature for East Anglia during winter 07/08 was 5.7°C. The mean temperature for East Anglia during winter 08/09 was much cooler at 3.4°C. The heating system thermostats are set to 16°C, resulting in an increase in the requirement for heating in East Anglia of 22%.

This analysis excludes the purchase and installation costs of £21,268 in the first year.

  • Winter 07/08 (pre-fans) total oil usage =£138,337
  • Winter 08/09 (post-fans) total oil usage = £83,837
  • Oil use reduction & savings, winter 08/09 = £54,500
  • Restated savings, inc lower Oil price 08/09 = £49,322
  • Restated Oil use & savings, inc lower temp 08/09 = £63,144
  • Airius System running costs per winter season= £793
