Trelleborg's industrial anti-vibration mounts plant in Leicester has installed a Mitsubishi Electric SCADA solution with integrated MX4 Energy software to monitor and control the plant's energy use. Since its installation the package has helped engineers to develop an energy saving strategy throughout the plant that continues to generate savings.

The MX4 solution logs energy usage at all points throughout the site, automatically analysing the data and producing reports on where the most energy is being used.

The plant's senior process engineer Mark Coote said: "We set ourselves an initial target of a 5% reduction in energy consumption, and were delighted that we immediately achieved nearer 6%. This gave us a payback of less than 18 months, plus the tools to go on reducing energy well into the future."
