Thorn Landskrona, Sweden, is the winner of the 2013 prestigious E-Prize energy award. The award strives to recognise small and large companies across Sweden working in an innovative and effective way to conserve energy while creating better business. Now in its fifth year, the award is run by financial Magazine "Veckans Affärer" and energy provider E-ON.
Patrik Källåker, Operations Director at Thorn Landskrona, says: "This is the second year Thorn has been nominated for the E-Prize award. The fact that we've won it this year reflects the improvements made over the past year."
One of Thorn's energy saving initiatives included actively controlling when different machines are on and off. For example, the compressor used to run at all times. However, by turning the compressor off when not in use, and making a few other minor changes, the financial savings from reducing energy consumption are approximately €400,000.
"We are very proud to be able to do something for the environment, and are delighted that our efforts have been recognised with the E-Prize award", says Patrik Källåker.
