Over the past few years, we surveyed about two hundred process plants, more than 10 refineries in Russia.
The challenge we faced was simple: at a particular facility, increase energy efficiency by a specific percentage value.
We met all the challenges.
With the help of our scientific method of SELOOP analysis, we reduced the power consumption on units by an average of 30%, without changing the technological mode.
The minimum effect shown by us was 12%.
This in itself is an astounding achievement. Nobody in the world has done this before us.
However, there were difficulties.
On some units, we easily achieved our goals, on some it was difficult, because the installations were already well integrated.
We asked technologists at the refinery how they chose the plants for the survey and how they determined the target percentage of consumption reduction.
The answer was the same everywhere "by experience."
But were the MOST inefficient plants chosen, and was the TARGET percentage set for reducing the consumption of fuel resources set?
The answer, unfortunately, is NO.
In terms of units, the potential revealed by us was EXTREMELY higher than the specified one. These are TENS of MILLIONS of DOLLARS of losses annually.
Losses that management DOES NOT SEE.
At that moment, our leader, Max Kanischev, asked the question - can we make a system that would allow without instrumental surveys, quickly and accurately determine the energy efficiency potential of a unit, decompose it by type of resources and up to single equipment? Show management where exactly those millions of dollars of lost effect.
Five years after that, five years of scientific research, mistakes, experiments, and approbations, we created the Anselm system.
The system that answers these questions.
