SUCCESS STORY

“Energy conservation is important from many different perspectives and not just because saving energy means saving our money by lowering our monthly energy bills (the economic importance of energy conservation). Energy conservation methods are also extremely important from the environmental point of view, by reducing our energy needs we are also reducing the global level of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change and global warming.”

Mr. Sarfraz Cheema
General Manager,   Soorty Enterprises (Pvt.) Ltd.


ESPIRE is a partnership project between bfz gGmbH, Business associations, and SMEDA.
By partnering with ESPIREenergy, industries are leveraging their own efforts to save energy and thus reduce costs, by adopting the following three services:

  • External Energy Audit (EA) for status quo analysis of energy consumption and recommendations for energy saving measures
  • Installation of Energy Information System (EIS) for continuous measurement and monitoring of energy consumption and costs
  • Implementation of Energy Management System (EnMS) in the factories for continuous control and reduction of energy consumption and costs with own staff.

Background
M/s Soorty Garments Apparel, a leading garmentsmanufacturer, producing highest quality of fashion garments for three decades. Situated in K.A.T.I Karachi, Pakistan.

Through Energy Audit energy conservation measures were identified with anannual energy saving potential of 4.537 Million PKR.An Energy Information Software was installed to enable the company to continuously monitor its energy consumption and costs.Energy Management Systemwas developed to enable the company to reduce its energy consumption further without external support. For 6 months the consultant assigned by ESPIREenergy monitored and supported implementation, documented the progress and quantified the realized costsavings.

Soorty Garments Apparelimplemented 7 improvement measures within 6 months which resulted in annual energy savings of 3.3448 Million PKR with an investment of only 1.138 Million PKR and a 4.08 months payback time.

To further improve the energy efficiency Soorty Garments Apparel has developed an Energy Policy and developed an energy team which is monitoring energy consumption and implementing energy conservation measures without external support.
