Jaguar Land Rover gears up for compressor efficiency - Case Study

When it came to selecting the compressed air system for its brand new, Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) in Wolverhampton, Jaguar Land Rover selected supplier Gardner Denver to provide a solution capable of high energy efficiency, low cost of ownership and reduced environmental impact.

Based on the proven Quantima compressor installation at the Jaguar Land Rover Castle Bromwich assembly plant, Gardner Denver has this time engineered a larger system capable of providing up to 8,000 m3 /h of high-quality, oil-free air to the new AJ200 machine shop and assembly halls. The result is a highly-efficient compressor package with an intelligent control system, comprising three Quantima Q-52 centrifugal compressors and two DH110 RS machines, with variable-speed drives to match air output to plant demand.
