Flowserve partners with Heide Refinery to drive savings through its Energy Advantage Program

The Flowserve Energy Advantage Program uses a data-driven engineering evaluation process that promotes energy efficiency through optimization of pump and valve power consumption – with little to no disruption to a customer’s existing processes. This holistic flow control approach helps customers like Heide reach their carbon reduction goals and lower total cost of ownership.

Aligned with its efforts to reduce carbon emissions, Heide Refinery is innovating to provide reliable energy while limiting its environmental impact and embeds energy efficiency into its value chain. Capitalizing on this strategic opportunity, Heide Refinery is working closely with Flowserve to capture additional energy savings.

Flowserve’s initial assessment analyzed Heide Refinery’s highest energy-consuming flow loops, identifying significant potential savings. Flowserve engineers introduced flow control solutions and recommendations that matched Heide Refinery’s existing process requirements –with improved energy efficiency and performance. By following Flowserve’s Energy Advantage Program recommendations, Heide Refinery is expected to reduce its power consumption annually by more than an estimated 2,000 Megawatt Hours (MWh).

“We are thrilled with the initial results,” said Roland Kühl, Heide Refinery’s managing director. “With Flowserve’s engineering expertise, we can achieve meaningful savings while also lowering our carbon emissions by over 1,300 metric tons each year. We look forward to continuing this partnership to help us identify more energy savings potential in the future.”

“Our Energy Advantage Program is revolutionizing the way our customers approach their strategies to decarbonize their operations,” said Scott Rowe, Flowserve’s president and CEO. “With an emphasis on improving operations, customers also can enjoy long-term savings while decreasing their overall carbon footprint.”

Following the success of the pilot, Flowserve and Heide Refinery will expand the program to optimize other flow loops within the plant.
