Olympic Oils Ltd is a leading independent supplier of vegetable oils, sauces and sundries, supplying within the UK and European markets. Since establishment in 1990, Olympic Oils has grown to become one of the largest packers and distributors in the UK of edible vegetable fats and oils. Much of the onsite production and packaging of these products requires automisation which, therefore, demands large power requirements.  

In 2019, Olympic Oils contacted Energy Gain UK seeking to reduce their energy-related overheads as well as the associated carbon footprint. Following a comprehensive site analysis, a 200 kWp solar photovoltaic system was decided upon; optimised for both their current power demand and financial requirements. This system now produces an estimated 158,000 kWh per year, significantly reducing Olympic Oils reliance on inflating energy costs, therefore, reducing production costs and increasing product margins.
