Mechanical Engineering Assets of Rimera Boost Energy Efficiency

23.10.2013



Alnas plant, the Almetyevsk-based asset of Rimera Group, has joined the Energy Saving Technologies Center of the Republic of Tatarstan in launching an energy audit as part of a republic-wide program to increase the efficiency of utilization of energy resources. Based on the audit findings, the Izhevsk-based plant of the Group, Izhneftemash, is already implementing comprehensive measures aimed at boosting the plant's energy efficiency.

Alnas has been chosen as a site for a pilot project as part of the targeted program, Increasing Labor Productivity at Mechanical Engineering and Petrochemical Industry Enterprises of the Republic of Tatarstan in 2013-2016. The plant and the Energy Saving Technologies Center signed an agreement to this end this past spring.
Experts of the Center are currently conducting an audit of production capacities and business processes at Alnas. The audit findings will help to work out an action plan towards boosting the plant's energy efficiency.
"This project is especially important for us in light of our ongoing modernization of the plant's production facilities and social infrastructure. It will help us to expand the bottlenecks, streamline our processes, and implement innovative solutions, thereby improving the efficiency and financial stability of Alnas. I am certain that our joint efforts will contribute to increasing the plant's output to 9,500 electric centrifugal pump units per year", says Alnas Executive Director Sergei Sachenko.
Izhneftemash, the Izhevsk-based plant of Rimera Group, has already completed its energy audit. The audit findings have been used to prepare an energy-saving program that will be implemented at the plant in 2013-2016. Among other projects, the plant is currently upgrading (automating) the central heat supply station, replacing obsolete hot-air curtains with heater-free curtains, installing heat metering stations and wiring them to a central control room, and replacing incandescent lamps with energy-saving lamps.
Efforts to boost energy efficiency of the Group's plants represent one of the key aspects of ongoing modernization geared towards an overriding goal of minimizing the cost of production and marketing of competitive products for the petroleum industry.
