The focus of the structural and  control measures was on the ventilation and cooling water systems for production, which  went into operation only in 2014.  This has improved the utilization of waste heat in the  ventilation system and reduced fan power consumption by  over 60 %. The power consumption  of pumps and cooling towers was also nearly halved:

  • Energy-efficient control of the ventilation  and cooling water system
  • Retrofitting of bypass valves for  regenerative heat recovery
  • Conversion of the exhaust air duct system
  • Adjustment of vsupply and exhaust air duct network
  • Hydraulic optimization of the cooling water network
