Case Study: Large Enterprise Energy & Utilities Company

Introduction

This case study of a large enterprise energy & utilities company is based on a April 2015 survey of FLIR customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“The FLIR GF series camera that we use in our business unit has resulted on a 90% reduction in Notices of Violation (NOVs) related to fugitive emissions leaks from regulatory agencies. In under one year, conservative estimates for the cost savings in terms of civil penalties from regulatory agencies gained by deploying the FLIR camera at our facilities in California has resulted in the camera having paid for itself two times over. In addition to substantial cost savings the FLIR camera has also allowed our company to reduce its environmental impact, improve facility reliability and protect its reputation as a respected corporate citizen.”
