Electrode Boiler Installation – 31,000 KW

RR Donnelley, Spartanburg, SC

As a world-class commercial printer of catalogs and large
publications, R. R. Donnelley (“Donnelley”) was facing ever
increasing competition from overseas printers and paperless
transactions over the internet. Energy costs had risen significantly
with the recent increase in natural gas pricing. 

Donnelley was searching for ways to reduce costs and had turned
its attention to energy expenses. It could not significantly reduce
the amount of steam it used, but it could lower steam cost by using
electricity instead of natural gas to produce steam.
