More energy-efficient buildings benefit everyone, from those who own and operate them, to those who live and work in them. Worldwide, the process of monitoring, controlling and conserving a building’s energy consumption is evolving quickly and becoming more complex. Building owners and operators may be hesitant about the best ways to do it all.
Trane cuts through the complexity to guide customers through the energy management process. We partner with them to achieve even the most ambitious energy efficiency goals for their buildings, at minimal operating costs.
This means exploring their building’s mission and defining its energy initiatives with them. Then we link those initiatives, in priority order, to the customers’ strategic and financial goals.
Trane then combines a wide range of systems and services to give customers unified business and technical solutions. And finally, using our unparalleled expertise and offerings, we work with our customers to track results and ensure their mission is achieved — now, and throughout the lifecycle of their energy efficient buildings.
Baxter Manufacturing Facility in Sabiñanigo Significantly Lowers
Energy Use and Improves Comfort
Trane and global, diversified healthcare company, Baxter, made energy-saving infrastructure upgrades within Baxter’s Spanish manufacturing facility that are expected to reduce energy use an average of 35 percent per year. The energy-efficient systems and solutions have also helped the plant to cut its annual carbon emissions by approximately 450,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2), or the equivalent of planting 2,260 trees each year. The upgraded cooling and air conditioning system features three new Trane RTAD chillers, variable frequency drives and static and dynamic hydronic balancing, a dry cooler, heat exchangers and other energy efficient solutions.
Trane Presents Leading Safety Razor Manufacturer with Energy
Efficiency Leader Award
Gillette and Trane completed energy saving infrastructure upgrades at the Gillette razor manufacturing, packaging and warehousing facility in Łódź, Poland, that significantly reduced energy use and increased uptime and reliability at the facility. The improvements also provide a safer, more comfortable and more productive environment for workers at the facility. In addition to the main systems upgrades, other efficiency improvements included implementation of variable flow drives and dry coolers for optimal performance. Upgrades also included extension of the free-cooling feature, which enables the ambient cold to be used for the cooling process, limiting the need to operate in compressor mode and reducing energy use.
Upgrades at Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School
Cut Energy Consumption by More Than 50 Percent
Trane made energy-efficient infrastructure upgrades at Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School in Rochester, Mass.- USA, that have reduced energy consumption by more than 50 percent, while improving the learning and teaching environment. An ongoing service and maintenance program helps ensure that all systems continue to run at optimum levels. Old Colony implemented a building automation system which provides centralized building control and enables remote access while monitoring results to help ensure that systems continue to run at optimum levels. Other upgrades included installing 18 rooftop units to increase efficiency and 54 variable air volume air handling systems which provide precise temperature control within specific zones.
