Talley’s to save energy through group-wide programme

Talley’s to save energy through group-wide energy management programme

Talley’s Group has announced it has partnered with the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) to put in place an energy management system across its three largest seafood and vegetable processing sites, as well as AFFCO New Zealand’s meat processing sites, with the goal of saving 5% of its energy use by 2016.

Talleys Group is a privately-owned company based in Motueka, which processes seafood and vegetables, and produces dairy products for local and export markets. Talley’s also owns the meat processing company AFFCO.

“We are excited about this project, which we believe will provide the opportunity to take a fresh look at our processes and streamline our activities, as well as managing our energy use,” said Talley’s Director Andrew Talley.

“Our aim is for our sites to become more productive, and to reduce costs at the same time. Although we have engaged in energy management initiatives before, the difference here is that we are taking a group-wide approach, and considering energy use across the energy intensive food processing and refrigeration plants”.

The project will see an energy management project based on a new international energy management standard (ISO 50001) implemented across these Talleys’ seafood, meat and vegetables processing sites.

An EECA-approved service provider, Erin Roughton from EMSOL, will work in partnership with Talley’s and EECA to establish energy management systems, identify opportunities and train staff to optimise plant for energy efficiency.

“We are very pleased to partner with Talley’s on this initiative,” said EECA’s Business General Manager Greg Visser.

“Food processing is an energy-intensive activity, and Talley’s is one of the larger food processors in the country.

“EECA BUSINESS is pleased to see a major commercial operator like Talley’s commit to a comprehensive review of energy use across these large sites.

“Just as importantly, we are excited to see Talley’s senior management driving this initiative. Our experience and research shows that energy management projects are most successful when they have the backing of the bosses.

“Talley’s is demonstrating leadership by working towards meeting the new ISO 50001 energy management standard, and we expect their example will encourage other New Zealand companies to follow suit."
