Mayer & Cie, circular knitting machine manufacturer from Germany, has announced that the company has got an award from Bade-Wurttemberg for the energy-related renovation of its building services. Franz Untersteller, minister for the environment, climate protection and the energy sector, named Mayer & Cie. one of the state’s 100 resource efficient companies.

Since Mayer & Cie. moved to its corporate headquarters on the outskirts of Albstadt-Tailfingen in the 1950s, the buildings on the site have repeatedly been extended, including many local and separate energy centres. This led to a disproportionately high use of energy. That was why, in 2014, Mayer & Cie. began to renovate its cold-water network. As a result, a third of the existing cooling plant became superfluous to requirements. Today’s cooling management now harnesses the Swabian Alb region’s bracing climate and switches off more cooling machinery during the five cold winter months.

In 2015 Mayer & Cie. went on, to upgrade its water pipes and renovate two heating plants. Last year, new compressors helped generate compressed air. This year the company was able to connect all consumers and install load profile management. Plans for the combined heat, power and cooling concept were also completed and a cooperation agreement was concluded with the Neckar-Alb Virtual Power Station, a pilot project undertaken in collaboration with the University of Reutlingen.

Heiko Hämmerle, Mayer & Cie.’s head of plant technology, who has been in charge of the project for over four years, will take the project further forward in 2018. Implementation of the heat, power and cooling concept will then be on the agenda, including the installation of a combined heat and power unit and many other lines.

In 2013, the ministry for the environment, climate protection and the energy sector, launched jointly with various industry associations in Baden-Württemberg, the Alliance for Greater Resource Efficiency. The Alliance has sought to identify 100 examples of excellence in Baden-Württemberg to demonstrate by means of specific projects the potential for savings in energy and material resources. The organisers are interested in both the approach and the implementation of measures. The Alliance for Greater Resource Efficiency feels that imitators stand to benefit most from projects at the operational level. (GK)
