Optimizing Heating Facilities with DSE Monitoring

Orkla, the largest food and confectionery company in Scandinavia with a remarkable annual turnover of 5.7 billion euros, takes a significant step towards optimizing their operations. As proud owners of the esteemed 100 million euro crisps brand, KIMs, Orkla is committed to finding innovative solutions.

By replacing a cold water valve, KIMs achieved a huge saving on gas. The fault would never have been discovered without energy monitoring from DSE Monitoring.

When the Maintenance Manager, Jesper, returned from vacation and accessed his DSE Monitoring profile, he was greeted with reliable true data that revealed an unexpected increase in gas usage. Surprising, considering the entire factory had been shut down for two weeks.

With 150 critical monitoring points in the factory, Jesper relied on accurate and dependable true data to identify a minor cold water leak in an area where usage should have been zero. This leak had a significant impact on the function of a heat exchanger, leading to continuous gas flow to maintain temperature in two rooms.

After replacing the faulty valve and restoring the cooperation between the heating device and gas, the power of reliable true data became even more apparent. The consequences of the leak were far greater than anticipated, but thanks to the precise information provided by DSE Monitoring, the issue was detected and addressed promptly.

In full operation, the small water leak remained unnoticed, as visual inspection alone would not have been sufficient to uncover the problem. It was only through the comprehensive and accurate monitoring of reliable true data that Jesper and his team were able to pinpoint the issue.

The reliance on reliable true data allowed them to take effective action, resulting in a remarkable reduction of 50,000 M3 of gas per year, amounting to approximately 60,000 euros in annual savings. This demonstrates the power of reliable true data in optimizing operations and uncovering hidden inefficiencies.

“We would have never discovered such an issue without the precise and reliable true data provided by DSE Monitoring. It is through this access to reliable true data that we can identify and address irregularities, ensuring they do not occur again,” shared Jesper L. Hansen, Maintenance Manager.

KiMs: A 100 million euro crisps brand

KIMs are not just ahead of their own game. They are frontiers in running a responsible production, and because they are truly data-driven with DSE Monitoring they can document every step of the way. 

They work with consumption data like no other. Benchmarking across consumption types, machinery, and facilities.

True data down to every single process and equipment has given us the right tool to lower our CO2 footprint. At the same time, we have gained considerable cost savings on our energy consumption – and now we report everything 100% precisely with very little workload.

As a matter of fact… it has been very good business.

– Jesper Lauvring Hansen,
Maintenance Manager at KIMs
