Through an extensive programme of capacity control upgrades at one of its major Military Air & Information sites in North West England, global defence, aerospace and security company, BAE Systems, has achieved annual savings of 70-80% on its computer room air conditioning energy costs, equivalent to £350,000.
BAE Systems required a cost-effective upgrade solution for its Warton site that would increase cooling performance and deliver significant energy efficiencies without disrupting critical testing and production of combat and training aircraft such as the Typhoon and Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer.
