Co Wicklow energy services company Crowley Carbon is to create 20 new jobs with the launch of its carbon control centre in Powerscourt, which it says is a world’s first.
The state-of-the-art facility called the C³ will enable Crowley Carbon to monitor, control and alert clients to any event that is causing their equipment to consume more energy than should be required.
The Department of Jobs through Enterprise Ireland has provided support on this project.
The proprietary technology has been in development for the past two years and undergone testing at sites in Ireland where its use has reduced energy costs by as much as 30pc.
Norman Crowley, chief executive officer of Crowley Carbon, said: “With ever-rising energy costs, the roll-out of C³ technology will allow businesses to be pro-active, rather than reactive, towards any potential increases that may arise in relation to ongoing energy bills.”
One of C³’s first clients, Emrill, is one of the largest facilities management companies in the Middle East, providing services to some of the largest and tallest buildings in the world.
For a monthly service fee, C³ customers will receive 24/7 monitoring from a team of engineers who will constantly review up to 800 different energy-consuming points throughout a client’s site.
