2017 Award Winner 

Forterra - Whittlesey Plant Continual Energy Improvement.

Forterra’s Whittlesey factory has been introducing measures to improve efficiency and reduce energy consumption over a number of years. In 2016 the management team increased production by 12% while improving energy efficiency through a number of measures such as investing in new pallets, improved preventative maintenance programmes, loading shovel replacement, new burners, improved curing control systems and increased insulation. This series of relatively small improvements have led to a saving in 2016 of 9% compared in energy consumption to 2015 and almost 18% when compared to 2014 when the project started.
