CHH Wins Top National Energy Efficiency Award

Carter Holt Harvey Wins Top National Energy Efficiency Award

The Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority awarded Carter Holt Harvey Kinleith the Supreme Award at the EnergyWise Awards ceremony held last night in Auckland. CHH Kinleith also won the EECA Sustained Achievement Award for demonstrating the most improvement in energy efficiency over a number of years.

Kinleith Mill Manager Dave King said that the award reflects the company’s determination to maintain a successful and sustainable business that operates responsibly. “Energy is a precious resource and our efforts will continue to focus on making the best use of that resource,” he says.

The EnergyWise Awards celebrate progress towards a sustainable energy future for New Zealand and showcase organisations and individuals that have demonstrated innovation and brilliant thinking in energy efficiency or renewable energy projects.

The Kinleith entry demonstrated how a dedicated focus on maximising energy efficiency had resulted in both cost savings and reductions in energy use per tonne of product produced since the implementation of Kinleith’s Value Creation project in 1998. Designed to ‘reduce costs and work smarter’, the project saw the implementation of a wide variety of energy savings projects, including increased use of wood waste as a fuel, equipment upgrades, ongoing optimisation of hot water, and research into alternative renewable energy sources.

Energy efficiency is now a firm part of the Kinleith management programme. To date, the mill has improved its energy efficiency to the extent that it consumes 17% less energy per tonne of product produced while raising production levels by 25% since 1998.

Mr King recognised that the past and ongoing success of the project relies on the hard work and commitment of all Kinleith employees, employees of Kinleith’s maintenance partner ABB and other suppliers.
