Crowley Carbon announces 20 new jobs with launch of pioneering C³ Energy Service
Crowley Carbon, an Enterprise Ireland client and Ireland’s fastest-growing Energy Services company, has today announced the creation of 20 new jobs at the launch of C³, the world’s first Carbon Control Centre located in Enniskerry, County Wicklow.
The state-of-the-art facility, which is the first of its type in the world, will enable Crowley Carbon to monitor, control and alert clients to any event that is causing their equipment to consume more energy than should be required.
The Department of Jobs through Enterprise Ireland has provided support on this project.
The ground-breaking, proprietary technology has been in development for the past two years and undergone extensive testing at sites in Ireland where its use has reduced energy costs by as much as 30 percent.
Welcoming the announcement, 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’.
Speaking of the announcement, 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: “Emrill has always been at the forefront of energy-led facilities management and is delighted to be C³’s inaugural client.
“Crowley Carbon is a world-leader in the green technology revolution and its latest pioneering breakthrough will enable Emrill to further its commitment to achieving significant cost-savings and environmental sustainability across its sites in years to come.”
For a monthly service fee, C³ customers willreceive 24/7 monitoring from a team of highly-qualified engineers who will constantly review up to 800 different energy-consuming points throughout a client’s site. The Centre is the first to integrate the multi billion dollar technology revolution, known as Internet of Things with a product for the energy efficiency market.
Internet of Things represents a new era for the digital age by enabling devices ranging from domestic fridges to industrial chillers and everything in between to communicate and be controlled over the internet.
