THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE
As one of Australia’s leading natural gas explorers and producers, QGC is a major user of power generation. QGC invited Onsite Rental Group to provide an expert view on how to operate its power generation more efficiently.
ONSITE RENTAL GROUP’S APPROACH
Onsite’s Power Specialists know that 90% of the cost of operating generators is fuel. With that as a starting point the Onsite team undertook a full power audit on both Onsite and third party generators. The power audit is a comprehensive undertaking that identifies improvements in safety, fuel consumption, generator configuration, redundancy, general set up and appropriate generator sizing.
The audit revealed that QGC could make significant savings if generators were re-sized, used more wisely and the number of generators was reduced significantly.
THE BUSINESS ADVANTAGE
Through this process Onsite were able to save QGC more than 400,000 litres of fuel representing a saving of almost half a million dollars a year.
