ASRY Energy Efficiency Project Creates Green Savings

ASRY, the Arabian Gulf’s leading maritime repair and fabrication facility, is already seeing benefits from an Energy Efficiency initiative, as a newly deployed Power Capacitor bank has reduced the yard’s consumption without affecting productivity, and created over $50k savings in first six months.

“ASRY is committed to energy efficiency on two fronts,” confirmed ASRY Managing Director, Mazen Matar. “Firstly for our customers, with our expertise in installing energy efficient products and upgrades on their vessels. Secondly for our community, nation and planet, by reducing the yard’s environmental impact through carbon-reducing initiatives, such as these power capacitor banks.”

ASRY has a number of environmental projects underway, including becoming the first shipyard to achieve global standards in green steel recycling of vessels, a yard-wide solar panel project under development, in addition to production energy improvements, such as LED lighting rigs and these power capacitor banks. 

By deploying correcting capacitor banks, the power factor required for the yard equipment, for example welding transformers, compressors, pumps, machines, dehumidifiers and cranes, can be efficiently stepped-down, wasting less energy.
