As a world leader in energy-saving technologies, Steinbacher looks to take advantage of every possible opportunity to increase energy efficiency and cut costs. The company is committed to maintaining the most appropriate proportion of active to passive energy. Steinbacher chose Rhino to help them achieve this aim—proving that Rhino is the energy solution that energy experts use.
Steinbacher implemented a Rhino electricity monitoring solution in 2015 in order to effectively measure consumption and accomplish its business goal of getting the correct balance of active and reactive energy in their 7000 m2 manufacturing site. Data collection through the Rhino system allowed Steinbacher to instantly analyse power usage and adjust the power it acquired from the electricity provider to gain large cash savings.
The success of the electricity monitoring solution prompted the company to expand its Rhino solution to smart water and gas metering in 2016. All meters take readings every 15 minutes and give Steinbacher a panoramic view of how utilities are consumed throughout the plant and production processes.
- Optimized production processes and cost reductions based on data analyses
- Constant monitoring of electricity usage protects against penalties for exceeded limits
- Empowers company in negotiations with electricity suppliers
- Allows better business decisions based the analysis of precise data
Rhino solutions mean Steinbacher know they are getting the absolute maximum from their utilities. The company values this area of their operations so much that they plan to extend their cooperation with Rhino by connecting their machines to a new remote monitoring system that will provide real-time information on quantities of produced components. That will take Steinbacher even further in its quest for optimized energy solutions.
