Bangkok, Thailand, (PRWEB) June 24, 2008
The Novotel Lotus Hotel expects to save more than $1.6 million (THB) each year in fuel costs and substantially reduce the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG's) it releases into the environment as the first off-grid city center corporate hotel in Asia to deploy the Etorus FE, a leading fuel saving technology.
The hotel property employs two large high speed/high density diesel fuel fired boilers to operate steam powered generators and produce hot water. The boilers together typically consume more than 30,000 liters of fuel per month.
"Our objectives are to be a good neighbor by reducing emissions of soot and carbon gases into the atmosphere and to simultaneously save money on fuel costs," said Ramesh Khendry, general manager for Novotel Lotus Hotel and the Regency Park Hotel in Bangkok. "We are accomplishing both with the Etorus FE fuel saving technology, and we have been very successful in reducing fuel consumption and limiting carbon released into the environment."
The Novotel Lotus Hotel expects to save about 60,000 liters of fuel annually, which translates to a cost savings of more than $1.6 million (THB), or $50,000 USD.
In an unaudited report by an external agency, when GHG trials began in April 2007, carbon monoxide (CO) output levels were reported at 49 parts per million (ppm). After installation of the device, CO levels dropped to 13 ppm, and carbon dioxide was reduced by over 17%.
The Etorus FE is currently used throughout the world to reduce fuel consumption and emissions in a number of applications, including fleet trucks, buses, locomotives, generators, boilers, furnaces, marine vessels and heavy off-road construction and mining equipment. Etorus, Inc. is a privately held United States-based global provider of business solutions for energy and environmental issues. For more information, visit http://www.etorus.com/how.html.
In addition to the Novotel Lotus, Master Com Engineering Company Limited, the Thailand distributor located in Bangkok, has sold the Etorus FE to Thai Beverage, Isuzu Motors, Rubia Industrial, Apex Plastic, and other companies in the region to increase efficiency in a variety of oil fire burner/boiler and diesel fueled engine applications.
"Through Etorus in the United States, we are able to offer our customers a unique product, excellent engineering support, and a quick response that allows them to immediately save on fuel costs, while reducing their emissions," said Visit Ungwajanon, general manager for Master Com Engineering Company Limited. "Compared to other fuel saving technologies we have evaluated, the Etorus FE exceeds the results of any other products in terms of fuel cost and emissions reductions. Our customers are experiencing fuel consumption reductions averaging 5-15% and can reduce GHG's by 10-30%."
