Productivity Audits
 
OVERVIEW

Conducted on site, our team of business, engineering, and financial experts determine if your cooling operation — and your operating dollars — are reaching their full potential.

 

DETAILS

- Quantify economic value of enhanced cooling, operations improvement options
- Mitigate end-user risk with performance contracting, outsourcing
- Leverage Marley’s unique and patented technologies
- Deliver real value, not just a product

Every existing Tower may represent:
- Excess operation and maintenance costs
- Production capacity constraints
- Growing risks
- Current process slow to fill needs
- Difficult to recognize or quantify opportunities
- Solution normally involves large Capital Expense
- Capital hurdle rates difficult to attain – delays project
- Capital Bid/Purchase process very slow

The purpose of a productivity audit is to understand:
- The cooling tower system
- The cooling tower condition, and
- Its relationship to the process(es) with which it is connected
- This will enable a realistic assessment of alternatives to increase value to the customer

STEP 1:
Understand all of the processes and other systems connected to the cooling tower system, and the impact of the cooling tower on those systems.

We interview persons with this type of knowledge:
- Performance Engineering
- Operations
- Process Efficiency Engineers
- Financial and Process Responsibility Personnel

STEP 2:
Understand the environmental regulations, limits and issues that are related to operation of the cooling tower system.
————————
Interview persons with this type of knowledge:
- Environmental Engineers
- Process and Operations Personnel

Is water consumption an issue on the site?
Are you having any issues meeting your permit criteria?

STEP 3:
Understand the control system, parameters measured, control steps and limits for the cooling tower system.  Evaluate the biocide and corrosion control measures.  Understand the maintenance program, protocols, and economics.

Interview persons with this type of knowledge:
- Process or Performance Engineering
- Maintenance and Operations Engineers

Determine the exact current configurations and condition of the existing cooling towers.

Understand the capital asset management philosophy and drivers.

Flexible financing equates to project enablement.
