Arla: Using Carbon Desktop for automation to fast track savings
Our Carbon Desktop 'Spotlight' for October is Arla who have used Carbon Desktop to identify money savings and save thousands of pounds in a short period of time. The automation has given the site team time to tackle low cost opportunities.
Arla is a Sustainability Leader and pioneer in the dairy sector. They promote their sustainability activities through the Closer to Nature programme.
Arla’s Settle dairy have taken a leading role in piloting new technologies and techniques. These have made a significant impact on overall operational efficiency, taking them another step towards Arla’s zero carbon goals.
John Caswell (PTD Manager) and Peter Wild (Automation Engineer) have been piloting a programme which triggers automatic alerts to relevant members of the site team immediately as a parameter goes out of tolerance.
The platform uses Verco’s combined hardware/software solution; Instant notifications are given, without the need to trawl through data manually.
The Settle team have been recognised internally within Arla for a number of their utility saving initiatives. They continue to use the best available technology to minimise the manual resource needed to reduce their utility consumption.
