Vallourec is the world leader in premium tubular solutions primarily serving the energy markets (oil, gas, power generation). The Changzhou plant steel tube manufacture is ISO 50001 certified and follows international energy management standards. Because of the energy-intensive production process, the Changzhou plant is highly committed to energy-saving. Since the beginning of 2015, energydesign has been supporting Vallourec’s facility by in-depth energy analysis to reduce the overall energy demand and improve efficiency. Energydesign’s services include
- Energy diagnosis
- Lighting audit & optimization concept,
- Waste heat recovery design
- Economic feasibility study
Our analysis on the operability and economic feasibility of different technical solutions allowed the client to take decisions on resource and develop anenergy action plan for the next 5 years.
In a first step, a lighting retrofit plan was made, where our lighting experts planned and designed optimized luminary layouts in connection with suitable EPC contractors for the plant. In the next step, a waste heat recovery concept was made to reuse energy from the steel tube production process for an overall energy-saving solution. In close cooperation with Vallourec, energydesign will further contribute to plant optimization and system upgrade, in order to achieve the energy-saving targets of Vallourec’s Changzhou plant.
Vallourec’s achievements in their Changzhou plant reflect the various strengths of energydesign’s professional expertise. We are committed to support more and more building owners and operators to reduce energy consumption, lower environmental impact, and acquire funds and subsidies to create mutual benefits both environmental and economic.
