In 2016, Bausch + Lomb – a leading eye-health provider best known as manufacturer of contact lenses – commissioned a highly efficient CHP plant in Waterford, Ireland, in line with its energy and sustainability strategy. The project, considered one of the largest of its kind in Ireland, was rolled out by Edina, MWM‘s exclusive partner in Ireland.
With its cogeneration plant equipped with the powerful MWM TCG 2032 V12 genset, Bausch + Lomb covers 65 percent of its electricity needs and 91 percent of its heat needs and cuts annual operating costs by up to €1 Million.
With a five-year service and maintenance contract for the CHP plant, Edina guarantees an engine availability of 95 percent (or 8,322 hours) per annum. The CHP plant is remotely monitored on a 24/7 basis in order to automatically detect and alert Edina’s service desk of any issues on site.
