What equipment will be installed within my system?

This depends on the solution that you choose, but may include a PLC, temperature sensors, flow and power meters, gateways, controllers, and an intelligent algorithm.


“How much energy can I save?”

Will my system suffer from downtime during the installation process?

There is no downtime during installation. This is because the equipment is installed in parallel to your system.


"6 question"

How long does the installation process take?

This varies based on the solution you choose, but should take no longer than 1 week.


“How long have you been in partnership with BBP?”

Are there any additional costs in order to install the solution?

All costs related to installation are included in the startup fee. You can calculate fees for your chosen solution by downloading and using this spreadsheet.


"6 question"

How much does Grundfos Cooling as a Service cost?

The fees involved depend upon the size and specifications of your chilled water system, and the specific solution you choose. As a general rule, facilities containing more cooling towers will incur a higher fee due to the additional equipment which will need to be installed. However, the resulting benefit in terms of savings will also be greater.

“When does installation start?”

How are fees structured?

Fees are structured into a startup cost and a recurring cost. The startup cost covers all fees related to installation, including manpower required, and is a one-off payment. Recurring costs are levied on a monthly basis and cover all ongoing services related to the solution you choose (e.g. providing raw data, delivering reports on energy consumption, consultancy).

What return will I get on my investment?

Your return on investment will be in three areas: 1) Reduced energy consumption, 2) Reduced costs related to energy, 3) Reduced carbon emissions.

How you realise this return depends on the solution that you choose. If you opt for our Monitor, Report or Consult solutions, then the data/information/consultancy provided by our team will help you carry out system optimisations yourself, which will in turn enable savings to energy, cost and emissions.

On the other hand, if you choose our Optimise solution, we will install a fully automated optimisation solution that will adjust component settings to deliver savings without your input required.

Our Optimise solution has delivered energy, cost and emissions savings of up to 35% for our clients.

"6 question"

How is it possible to save so much?

The efficiency of a chilled water system has to do with how it adapts to building use and environmental factors (e.g. changing humidity and temperature). Therefore, even if a system contains the latest machinery and technology, it would not achieve efficiency unless its component's settings are continually changed to meet current conditions.

The solutions that we offer enable your team to make changes to component settings in a timely and accurate manner. This means that you will be able to adapt to changing conditions and achieve savings.

"5 question"

My company wants to use Grundfos Cooling as a Service to reduce its emissions. If the solution chosen works, will we get to keep all emissions reductions?

Yes, you will. In fact, your company will receive a certificate of emissions reduction which - depending on your market of operation - can be traded as a carbon offset on global or local carbon markets.
