Implementation of the Project “Performance of Energy Audit in the Company UAB Akvavita”
UAB AKVAVITA is one of the most modern mineral water extraction companies in Lithuania. Modern equipment for water extraction, preparation, bottling, labelling and packaging introduced several years ago enables production of the highest quality products without contact with the air, thus preserving the unique composition of the mineral water. In the manufacturing plant, all technological processes are carried out using raw materials and energy. Energy consumption is increasing every year, which raises the cost of the product and reduces its competitiveness in the market. The company lacks funds and skilled specialists to more quickly solve the issues of energy consumption reduction in technological processes and equipment. UAB Akvavita intends to carry out an energy consumption audit in the company to increase the efficiency of energy and raw materials consumption and to remain competitive. The specialists of the company do not have authority to carry out such an audit. Therefore, the help of certified auditors who can carry out the energy audit in accordance with the “methodology for carrying out energy, energy resources and water consumption audit in technological processes and equipment” is necessary. Competent auditors will assess the current situation of the company and indicate measures to increase energy efficiency. The company is ready to gradually introduce tools, processes or technologies that save energy and natural resources.
The project “Performance of Energy Audit in the Company UAB Akvavita” funded by the European Regional Development Fund was prepared for the performance of the energy audit. The project commencement date was 1 June 2016, and its completion date was 30 November 2016.
Within three years after performance of an energy audit, the company commits to implement at least 30% of the energy efficiency measures recommended in the audit report that are attributed to the Group A (regular payback period up to one year) and Group B (regular payback period from one to three years) as specified in the Audit Methodology.
