Energy study using the Pinch analysis method
Helbling Beratung + Bauplanung AG executed an energy study for Swiss Steel AG in Switzerland using the pinch analysis method. The focus was to improve the energy and resource efficiency.
We identified an energy saving potential of 3 GWh/a (gas saving) with a payback time of approx. 3 years. Furthermore, we developed concepts to use waste heat from the cooling bed and the flue gas for either hot water production (potential savings 36 GWh/a) or for a heat to power solution (potential savings 4.4 GWh/a).
