ABB Australia's transformer site in Darra have been working hard to improve their water usage across the site, resulting in reducing water consumption by up to 60 per cent.
“Sustainability continues to be a focus in all facets of the operations of performance services at Darra," says Shane Harrison, ABB Performance Services, site manager, Darra. "This positive result indicates the scale of improvement that can be made in raising energy efficiency on site," says Shane.
The team has implemented a number of initiatives to help the site control its water usage, including the use of automation technology in water supply. A Water Efficiency Management Plan (WEMP) has been developed to help achieve an additional 10 per cent improvement in the site’s water efficiency.
Graham Jones, Darra site manager and Vice President, Transformers commented: “I have been very pleased with the vast improvements that Shane Harrison and the Performance Services team at Darra have achieved in the time spent to date. Our water usage had become important to address in the past months, which Shane’s team have responded quickly and effectively to. The site will continue to strive for ongoing savings in this area.”
