Beca has announced a powerful new digital solution to help the owners of industrial cold storage refrigeration systems optimise their operations, for lower energy costs and carbon emissions.
This game changing process optimisation tool developed by Beca – Maestro – can unlock significant carbon emission and energy savings of up to 15%. It does this via an intuitive user interface that allows industries heavily reliant on cold storage refrigeration to view data from their plant and equipment, before using machine learning technology to identify process and control improvements.
Adrian Dickison, Maestro founder says, “We know cold storage is by nature an energy intensive industry and energy bills are typically the second highest cost, just behind the cost of labour”.
“Maestro was born of this challenge – a digital solution to give industries reliant on cold storage systems greater insight and control over their energy consumption. This allows producers to not only reduce their operational costs but also meet the challenges of reducing carbon emissions”.
Optimising the operational settings of cold storage refrigeration assets also means less wear and tear on expensive equipment, whilst providing valuable opportunities for producers/operators to gain further insights to make their plant work better overall.
Maestro only needs modest capital outlay and minimal to zero new equipment or changes to an existing plant’s infrastructure for it to work effectively. This makes it more accessible to more industry players, from multinational businesses through to smaller local brands.
Adrian Dickison commenting on the low barriers to entry for smaller producers, said “Maestro will work while you do. It seamlessly integrates with your existing assets, giving you immediate results, without the need to invest in expensive new equipment… even better, it won’t disrupt your existing operations either.”
