Twenty New Jobs Created at Crowley Carbon
Crowley Carbon – the Irish company specialising in solutions for energy-efficient heating and cooling systems – has created twenty new jobs at the firm´s new Carbon Control Centre in County Wicklow.
The state-of-the-art “C3” facility – the first of its type in the world – will enable Crowley Carbon to monitor, control and alert clients to any event that is causing any equipment from domestic fridges to industrial chillers to consume more energy than they should.
The ground-breaking technology that allows communication with – and control of – the equipment over the Internet has been in development for the past two years. It has been extensively tested at sites in Ireland, where its use has reduced energy costs by as much as 30 percent.
For a monthly service fee, C3 customers will receive 24/7 monitoring from a team of Crowley Carbon´s highly-qualified engineers. The engineers will be able to simultaneously review up to 800 different energy-consuming points throughout a client’s site to optimise their energy efficiency.
Welcoming the creation of twenty new jobs at Crowley Carbon, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD said: “Today’s announcement that Crowley Carbon is to create 20 new jobs is very welcome. Here is an Irish company developing innovative technology, pursuing new markets and creating new jobs and we wish them every success for the future”.
Norman Crowley, Chief Executive Officer of Crowley Carbon, said: “We are delighted to announce the creation of 20 new jobs resulting from today’s launch of the C3 Carbon Control Centre. With ever-rising energy costs, the roll-out of C3 technology will allow businesses to be pro-active, rather than reactive, towards any potential increases that may arise in relation to ongoing energy bills.”
He continued: “By providing our customers with accurate, reliable, and real-time information around excessive energy consumption, Crowley Carbon has re-set the benchmark for Irish consumers and businesses, all of whom will benefit from the significant cost savings, job creation and environmental benefits that will arise as a direct consequence of greatly-reduced energy consumption.”
One of C3’s first clients, Emrill, is one of the largest Facilities Management companies in the Middle East and provides services to some of the largest and tallest buildings in the world. Ben Churchill, Emrill’s Managing Director, said of the launch of the Carbon Control Centre: “Emrill has always been at the forefront of energy-led facilities management and is delighted to be C3’s inaugural client.
