Certified RPC Superfos Randers uses less energy

Certified RPC Superfos Randers uses less energy

Installing new injection moulding machines and re-using heat from cooling are among the successful initiatives for spending less energy at our Randers facility in Denmark. The dedicated energy management means that RPC Superfos Randers is once again ISO 50001:2011 certified.


For the second year in a row, RPC Superfos Randers, Denmark, has achieved ISO 50001:2011 certification ‒ an Energy Management Standard issued by independent authorities. The Randers facility is continuously implementing smarter ways of using energy and recent efforts now translate into re-certification, as well as considerable energy savings.

All-electric machines use less energy
Joel Kjellander, HSE Manager, RPC Superfos Randers, is pleased with the achievements and with the fact that they are beneficial both from an environmental and economical point of view.

“It makes a lot of sense to work systematically with energy management. On an ongoing basis, we discuss what needs to be done and where the most important savings can be found. Fortunately, we have massive amounts of data from our production which help to map our options.”

“As an example of significantly less energy use, we have replaced old injection moulding machines with new ones. This initiative represents in itself the biggest energy saving at our production site: up to an impressive 40% in the case of exchanging a hydraulic machine with an all-electric one.”

Re-use of waste heat
RPC Superfos Randers continues to work on more energy savings in collaboration with a large Danish utility company. Currently on the action plan is the re-use of waste heat from air compressors to heat up other areas of the factory. Another project concerns the control of vacuum pumps for vacuum lifters, ensuring that they only run when needed.

Better light with a lot less energy
Simply changing the source of light also has a clear impact. Joel Kjellander explains:

“Last year, we achieved considerable savings by installing LED lighting in all corners of our production area. I’m glad to see that this has entailed a dual benefit: the light output is clearly better and, at the same time, we have reduced the energy consumption by up to 40% compared with the former fluorescent lamps.”

The energy saving efforts at our Randers facility were initially sparked by a Danish government programme. One of the ways to adhere to the programme is to hold a ISO 50001 Energy Management Certificate, now in place for RPC Superfos Randers and valid until February 2020.
