Samotics reduces industrial costs and CO2 emissions with new energy efficiency solution

Samotics – a leading provider of solutions to eliminate industrial energy waste and unplanned downtime – has launched a new energy efficiency product to market: SAM4 ENERGY.

The company say that by providing detailed performance and efficiency insights across industrial assets, Samotics’ customers can now realize energy savings of 10-15% and cut CO2 emissions.

“Heavy industry is the world’s largest energy consumer, with most of this energy usage associated with equipment driven by electric motors. Yet, between 20 to 40% of the electricity used by these motors is wasted due to operational inefficiencies, process-machine mismatches, and developing damage,” said Jasper Hoogeweegen, CEO at Samotics. “With sustainability high on the agenda for organizations across the industrial sector, improving electrical efficiency should be a key pillar in all sustainability strategies worldwide.”

SAM4 ENERGY is the latest innovation within the SAM4 product suite which also includes SAM4 HEALTH – Samotics’ AI-based asset health monitoring system for AC motors and rotating equipment.

According to Samotics, this revolutionary end-to-end solution goes beyond traditional power logging and energy reporting to acquire data, identify energy waste, provide concrete recommendations, and demonstrate return on investment. It is a continuous monitoring system which characterizes the performance of industrial assets, identifying where electricity consumption, cost and efficiency losses are largest and why.

Armed with these insights into electrical consumption and performance, SAM4 ENERGY provides industrial companies access to a 24/7 energy audit for the first time ever. It generates concrete and actionable advice on how to reduce electrical inefficiencies and, once advice is implemented, SAM4 ENERGY tracks subsequent energy savings and carbon offset to demonstrate return on investment. The energy efficiency platform provides customers with a visually interactive reporting tool enabling real-time insight into the performance of assets across a variety of performance metrics.

“Heavy industries are producing hundreds of millions of data points everyday across critical assets. For years, manually harnessing the potential of this data has been too costly and complex to achieve. With the launch of SAM4 ENERGY, we are proud to be delivering an accessible solution to the market which provides greater insights and actual solutions to electrical inefficiencies. This promises to significantly reduce global emissions,” adds Hoogeweegen. 

Samotics’ has launched SAM4 ENERGY to market following successful industrial customer trials. One trial deployment identified a foul pump at a sewage pump station that was operating at a very low efficiency caused by low flow operation. Following automatically-generated advice to open a partially-closed discharge valve, yearly electricity savings of 40-55% were achieved for that single pump which equated to €15k and 30 tonnes of CO2.
