CHP System Cuts Garment Manufacturers Energy Costs

CHP Energy Halves Operating Expenses At Glenbrae

Reclaim Energy is thrilled to share the remarkable success story of Glenbrae, a distinguished luxury clothing brand celebrated for its unwavering commitment to crafting high-quality garments. Nestled in the picturesque West Yorkshire mill town of Slaithwaite, near Huddersfield, Glenbrae, under the umbrella of Spectrum Yarns, has been the epitome of fine knitwear. Their product line, featuring jumpers, sweaters, pullovers, and slipovers, has set industry standards for excellence.

The Challenge: Unsustainable Energy Costs Threaten Legacy

Operating from an extensive Victorian mill, the owners of Glenbrae faced a growing concern—the escalating costs of heating and powering their historic facility. This financial strain not only risked the sustainability of their operations but also posed a threat to the 50-year legacy of the company.

Reclaim Energy Steps In

Recognizing the need for a transformative solution, Glenbrae approached Reclaim Energy to evaluate their challenges and propose an effective remedy. The outcome was nothing short of groundbreaking—a meticulously designed, produced, and installed Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.

At the heart of this innovative system lies a V12 engine, capable of being powered by either natural gas or eco-friendly biogas. Remarkably efficient at 95%, this engine operates almost silently, addressing the environmental impact of traditional power sources.

The Solution: CHP for Sustainable Power

The implemented CHP system not only fulfills Glenbrae’s entire electricity demand but also optimizes the ‘waste’ heat generated during electricity production. This surplus heat now serves the dual purpose of providing heating and hot water for the facility.

Financial and Environmental Gains

The £600,000 investment in the CHP system is forecasted to be recouped within a single year. Glenbrae anticipates a remarkable 50% reduction in their annual energy costs, showcasing a substantial win for their financial sustainability. Furthermore, this energy transition is set to significantly lower their CO2 emissions compared to reliance on the national grid.

Glenbrae’s strategic investment in sustainable energy solutions not only secures their operational future but also aligns seamlessly with their dedication to quality and excellence. Reclaim Energy takes pride in being a part of Glenbrae’s journey toward a greener, more sustainable future. Stay tuned for more success stories as we continue to champion eco-friendly solutions for businesses across diverse industries.
