Cooling as a Service, Renewable Power and Outsourced Steam
Lynca Meats is a leading meat processor, supplying a range of quality pork products to the food service, wholesale, butchery and retail industry. They approached Energy Partners to assist them with reducing their cost of electricity at their abattoir and reducing downtime which affected production and resulted in stock loss.
Project Size : Solar 960kWp, Refrigeration 792kWr, Steam 4T/hr
Technology : Ammonia plant, Steam Boilers, Rooftop PV
Funding Option : Cooling as a Service, Outsourced Steam, Solar PPA
Location : Meyerton, South Africa
Commissioning Date : 2017
Our operation consists of 28 temperature-regulated rooms that run 24 hours a day. Managing the energy requirements of a facility of this scale had become increasingly time-intensive, requiring specialised knowledge. We realised that handing this managerial responsibility over to outsourced specialists would therefore be in the best interest of the business, as it would allow us to focus solely on the company’s core activities. We outsourced our Refrigeration, Solar Power and
Steam to Energy Partners. This decision paid off almost immediately, with our business achieving a 30% reduction in energy costs.
