Investigation into Voltage Optimisation Technology for Abattoirs

Energy costs are one of the major operating costs in the red meat processing industry in Australia (AU$1M to AU$2M per year each in the top 25 processing plants), with primary energy sources including electricity and natural gas.

AMPC and Murdoch University have recently concluded a research project on the feasibility of using voltage optimisation technologies to provide cost effective energy reductions and improved electrical equipment lifetimes in Australian red meat processing facilities.

The project has produced a voltage optimisation guide that assists staff at red meat processing sites to determine whether voltage optimisation is technically and economically suitable for their site.
