CraigPine


Energy Management Partnership

2011 to 2019

PROBLEM

CraigPine is located near Invercargill and produces approximately 115,000 m3 of sawn pinus radiata timber annually. High energy use technology utilised by the sawmill include mills, kilns and boilers. Some of this technology was reaching the end of its maintainable life, therefore, needed replacing. Along with this, CraigPine had a focus on energy efficiency and desired to reduce its operating costs.

SOLUTION

Over a period of time, DETA has performed services such as an Energy Audit, Energy Management Programme and delivered projects.

OUTCOME

DETA has identified areas for energy reduction through audit processes, and developed an energy management framework that delivers savings of more than $450,000 annually. DETA has also delivered a co-generation project at CraigPine which reduces reliance on local grid infrastructure and creates a revenue from a waste product.
