Kimberly Clark is a global personal care corporation that produces mostly paper based consumer products. Kimberly Clark brand name products include Kleenex facial tissue, Kotex feminine hygiene products, Cottonelle, Scott and Andrex toilet paper, Wypall utility wipes, KimWipes scientific cleaning wipes, and Huggies disposable diapers.

Under a full turn-key project Kimberly Clark commissioned FEG to Design, Supply, Install, Site Supervise, and Commission a system to utilise waste heat from four 160kW compressors to heat various workshops and other work areas of the plant.

The system had to ensure sufficient compressor ventilation to avoid overheating, minimise the effect of drafts and noise in the work areas. The complete installation had to be completed without affecting the compressor uptime as this directly impacted on production. The project costs were completely recouped with a payback of less than 2 years.

This project involved site management, control of contractors, budget management and programme control.
