Charlotte is currently working on an EngD sponsored by Verco. The focus has been on operational improvements and process control for energy efficiency.
Charlotte’s full-time EngD is with the IDC Systems Centre at the University of Bristol. It has involved working with our Dairy clients to understand and assess the efficiency and potential for improvement of their pasteurisation plants.
On returning to Verco in 2019 she will be bringing the skills and knowledge she has developed to further help industrial clients understand their process “black boxes” – high energy consuming plant that has been unmonitored or is difficult to extract energy information for. She will also be undertaking project and program management work.
Work within Charlottes EngD has identified potential savings of £150k+ per annum for one of our clients. The savings are from improvements to pasteurisation plant through investment and operational changes.
