Reduce energy consumption to 6 kWh per pen place with  Dynamic MultiStep®
Heating and ventilation are  some of the worst offenders when it comes to high-energy bills for pig  production. Yet in actual fact, power consumption for ventilation can be  significantly reduced.

Stepless regulation extends minimum  ventilation
It is well known that considerably more power  is consumed at high fan capacity than at low capacity. This is why SKOV has  developed Dynamic MultiStep®, whereby the fans are connected in groups at  approx. 50% of their output. Once all the fans are connected, they are regulated  in parallel up to 100% of their output, should additional ventilation be  required. Or in other words, because more fans are employed, they can run at a  lower output. This reduces power consumption significantly while still  maintaining a good climate inside the house.

Significant reduction of energy  consumption
Studies conducted in a Danish pork production  showed that energy consumption can be brought down to just 6-10 kWh per pen  place annually. Energy consumption is reduced, and the animals have the same  good climate conditions – the only change that was noted was that the noise  level was also brought down, much to the pleasure of both employees and animals.  ​​
