Case Study

Energy efficient glass production, Armenia

Profal LLC is one of the leading companies in Armenia manufacturing various glass and metal constructions, interior and façade solutions, furniture, automatic gates, protection blinds, mineral fibre hanging ceilings, floorings, roofing and other products. It is a large import player and is the official representative of almost fifty European companies and brands.
To maintain the high standards, the company decided to replace its old Chinese production line with a new and energy efficient unit, and addressed Energocredit for financing.
 
The Energocredit team performed the analysis of this investment and assessed the potential of energy savings and the technical-financial parameters of the project to make sure the company achieves the best results.
 
The project included replacement of the old window processing line (including grinding, edging, washing equipment) with a mobile edger from an Italian supplier.
 
The $151,000 investment generates $25,000 cost savings for Profal each year. The cost savings arise due to reduction of electricity consumption by 96 per cent per year. The investment will repay itself out of energy savings in six years, turning the future cash-flows into company's income for the years to come.
 
This investment allows Profal to significantly reduce the production costs and continue focusing on the quality and diversity of products to satisfy the most demanding clients.
