Canberra Sports & Aquatic Centre (CISAC) is Canberra’s largest indoor sporting venue, encompassing over 12 individual tenancies to provide health, sporting, aquatic and leisure activities to more than 1 million patrons per year. The aquatic facility has a 50m indoor competition pool, driven by 2 x 18.5kW filter pump motors running all year round.
As a Complete Energy Savings Package we provided the services of commercial pool filtration company Aquatic Projects Pty Ltd, ensuring performance and commissioning of the pool filtration system.
Energy Monitoring was provided by Auzion prior to installation, showing the motors consuming a combined average of 40kW per hour, or $55,000 per annum (at current rates).
The installation of FW’s solution has provided significant energy savings of approximately 45% and estimated reduction of more than $24,000 per annum. The facility is currently looking at installing this technology on additional motors throughout the centre.
