Project overview

Quality Energy was engaged to design and manufacture a Power Factor Correction system for Covino Farms to improve their Power Factor and reduce their electricity bill. The proposed solution would need to fit in a tight space and withstand heat stress.

Covino Farm's electrical network was inefficient with a low Power Factor, resulting in high electricity bills.
The Problem
Increasing energy costs was impacting Covino Farm's operating costs and reducing the farm's energy efficiency.
The Consequences
Quality Energy team did an in-depth Power Quality study and recommended a 450kVAr Power Factor Correction unit. The unit was custom-designed and built in our factory at Moorabbin, Victoria. Key features of the unit include an open equipment design for ease of maintenance, low heat stress and minimal depth to accommodate for tight locations.

Project Outcomes

Covino Farm’s Power Factor improved after the installation, and the client saw a reduction in their network demand charges, delivering them savings on their electricity costs.

The Benefit
The installation of a Power Factor Correction system improved Covino Farm's energy efficiency and lowered the network demand charges on Covino Farm's electricity bill.
