Project overview

Quality Energy’s partnership with Qantas began back in 2016 when we were selected to design and install Power Factor Correction equipment for their catering facility in Crestmead Queensland. From that point Quality Energy has worked with Qantas at their sites at Melbourne and Sydney Airport.

A low power factor was causing a number of Qantas sites at Sydney International Airport to be paying excess charges on their power bill.
The Problem
High power bills were placing unnecessary costs to Qantas across a number of their Sydney & Melbourne sites.
The Consequences
Quality Energy installed over 2,000 kVAr worth of Power Factor Correction systems across a number of sites at Sydney Airport in order to reduce kVA demand charges and help manage rising electricity costs.

Project Outcomes

Reducing demand (kVA) charges on a business’s power bill is usually the easiest way to reduce costs. Qantas’s demand charges made up to 60% of their total energy bill meaning a return on investment of less than 3 years could be achieved.

The Benefit
Qantas are now receiving lower demand charges across a number of sites due to their improved power factor.
