Aluminum Manufacturer

Speira GmbH

Energy management and production analysis

Speira has been using EnEffCo® at its Grevenbroich factory site since 2016 with more than 500 meter points. The aluminum manufacturer was a partner in the CO2realtime research and development project.

The Challange

Speira (formerly Hydro) produces rolled aluminum products in Germany and Norway and employs around 5,000 people. The Grevenbroich plant is the world´s largest aluminum rolling mill. Due to increasing customer needs, Speira was on the lookout for a software application that could serve as a traditional energy management solution while also enabling specific types of analysis to be performed.

EnEffCo® is a comprehensive energy management system that tracks and visualizes selected energy and process data, thus allowing us to calculate product specific carbon footprints and KPIs.
