The RPC Group is Europe’s leading manufacturer of rigid plastic packaging. With just under 50 autonomous sites in 12 countries, the company employs in excess of 6,500 people.
RUMM was asked to investigate energy usage at RPC’s Llantrisant plant and provide solutions and suggestions for reducing the annual energy bill.
Following the completion of the aM&T system, where 17 meters were installed across the site, a benchmarking exercise then took place in order to ascertain where energy was being used and equally where it was being used non-efficiently. (energy management UK)
RUMM and RPC then engaged in an energy management partnership to achieve savings. This included regular weekly meetings to discuss options that could save the company money.
Site analysis was carried out based on production output, SEC and this was benchmarked to reduce consumption.
As a result of the measures put in place, energy consumption in the first 5 months dropped from 1354528 kWh to 1131995 kWh, with specific energy consumption reducing by 14%. This equated to a £120k saving in the first year alone.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee
Marquees for sale are available in a range of sizes and a range of qualities. The better quality marquees use thicker steel framework (34mm upwards) and PVC covers rather than PE or poly/PVC. The weight of the PVC material used on the marquees (measured in gsm -grams per square metre) is an indication of the thickness but not the quality, the true strength of PVC comes from the inner core material before it is coated.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee. With a good design additional bracing can make a marquee stronger eliminating the need for a thicker framework. Having interchangeable side panels can give much greater functionality so a marquee can be tailored for any site on which it is erected.
Throughout the world marquees are referred to as party tents but in the UK the term party tents usually refers to smaller marquees 3m, 4m or 6m wide made from steel tube. Party tent style marquees can usually offer a stronger but more economical alternative to traditional larger marquees – party tents for sale
Marquee accessories like linings, lighting and flooring can transform a marquee from a shelter to an impressive temporary structure suitable for any party or event. It is worth researching the availability of replacement parts to ensure you will not be let down in the future for the want of one damaged component.

South Africa who had a bad start to the World Cup Rugby 2015 tournament against Japan have gone from strength to strength getting into the Semi Finals against New Zealand at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 24th October at 16.00.
South Africa captain Fourie du Preez snatched the Springboks a 23-19 quarter-final victory over Wales with a try five minutes before the end which his coach Heyneke Meyer described as”pure genius”.
With Wales leading 19-18 and poised for only their third victory against the Springboks in 109 years, number eight Duane Vermeulen broke away blindside from a scrum near the Welsh 22-metre line and threw an audacious pass behind his back to scrum-half du Preez, who sprinted to the corner to touch down.
“I would like to kiss Fourie. I have always said coaching is overrated. You have to pick players with character and who perform under pressure,” Meyer said. “That try was just pure genius.”
The Springboks, who began the tournament with a shock loss to Japan, proved they have developed a fighting character during this tournament to turn the match around.
Fly-half Handre Pollard set the foundations for the South African victory with 18 points from his boot, after a first–half try from scrum-half Gareth Davies and 14 points from goalkicker Dan Biggar had put Wales within reach of one of the biggest victories in their history.
Biggar had to watch the last seven minutes on the touchline after he was taken off for a head injury assessment. The fly-half had been inspirational for Wales, setting up the try which secured a 13-12 half-time lead.
As expected, the match was an intensely physical encounter that featured two contrasting styles of play, with South Africa attacking largely through their powerful forwards while Wales tried to move the ball wide with their backs as often as possible.
Welsh indiscipline helped South Africa to an early 9-3 lead courtesy of three penalties from Pollard, but in the 18th minute Biggar’s brilliance gave Wales their only try.
The fly-half put up a high kick on the half-way line, raced ahead and caught it on the Springbok 22-metre line, before squeezing a brilliant pass to Davies on his right to score near the posts. After a fourth Pollard penalty restored the Springboks’ advantage, a long-range drop goal from Biggar secured Wales a one-point lead at the break.
South Africa missed an opportunity to regain the lead at the start of the second half when Pollard missed a penalty attempt, before a 45-metre effort from Biggar stretched the Wales lead to 16-12.
The Springboks applied all the pressure in the third quarter of the match, running multi-phase attacks through their pack. However, Wales defended superbly and South Africa’s only reward for a dominant period of play was a Pollard drop-goal.
The Springbok fly-half missed a second penalty kick, while his fifth success from the tee was matched by Biggar to keep the Welsh one point ahead at 19-18 with 10 minutes remaining.
But with Biggar off the pitch and the Welsh tiring, South Africa kept up the pressure before seizing their winning try in clinical fashion, du Preez (pictured above celebrating) crossing the line in the 75th minute for the match-winning touchdown.
“We are absolutely gutted. I am proud of the performance of the guys,” Wales coach Warren Gatland said. “The boys gave everything, emptied their tanks but we just weren’t good enough to hold on for 80 minutes.”

THE SHOWMAN’S SHOW 2015
DIY Marquees specialise in selling marquees, marquee Lighting and party tents and just had notification that we will be on stand 262 Avenue Eat this year’s Showmans Show. Come out of the entrance marquee, turn right and then first left – we’re halfway up on the right as usual and opposite the excellent Arcotherm (well worth a visit for marquee heaters). Please do pop in and say hello, we’ll be launching our new range of demi-marquees as well as exhibiting our always popular walkways and other marquees including Pop up Marquees.
The marquee hire business I built up got to a sufficient size that I could not be on site for every job. We would be running several teams of erectors with me and another site foreman running between each site. I turned up one afternoon to find a team nearly finished. The marquees were up, the flooring and linings were fitted and they were just setting up the furniture.
The quality of finish was excellent. They proudly stated the only thing left was the walkway to the house “and they’re easy”. Walkways are easy to erect, indeed our current model of walkway is the easiest one we’ve ever designed. They are not easy to erect if you don’t leave enough space for it – as this team had done!
The lesson to learn from this is when connecting marquees to houses always always start building from the house outwards. Build the walkway (or one of our demi-marquees, details coming soon) first and then butt the main marquee(s) up to it. That way you know you’ve allowed enough space or know you’ve got to do some adapting to make fit before you get too far in to the build. As for the job in question it was solved using a hacksaw and PVC welding to still give an excellent job but it turned an early-finish day in to a late night one for everyone.
