British Airways (BA) has incorporated Schneider Electric's Altivar 61 variable speed drives (VSDs) into the condenser water pump system at its Flight Training facilities at Heathrow Airport. The solution has resulted in a significant saving for the business while helping to overcome operational difficulties on the system.

Schneider Electric originally loaned British Airways and EMCOR an Altivar 61 VSD to test its performance and prove the return on investment it would deliver. BA was so impressed that it then took the decision to install drives on two star delta pumps, and with Schneider Electric's assistance they now operate at 12kW each, compared to 90kW previously.
