Seguin Compacting Bin Automation and Energy Saving

Projects Description

The operation of compaction systems at remote sites is challenging because of the need to manually cycle the units. Sequin Township proposes to test a new means of automating these systems and insulating the hydraulic system to reduce winter heating costs. The proposed retrofits will cost $16,000 with CIF contributing up to 41% subject to proof of concept. These retrofits are expected to have a payback of 2 years and the information will benefit the dozens of compactor systems in operation across Ontario.
