Why Lean specialists in Okavango ?

For two main reasons: on one hand, thanks to the LeanergyTM approach more than half the energy savings that we identify do not require investment. They are the result of a precise fit of the consumption to the actual needs, eradication of energy waste and questioning of the conduct of operations and organization. On the other hand, with the tools of Lean, Okavango insures the sustainability of the results by putting in place a process of continual improvement included in the system of management of his client. LeanergyTM brings the company towards a system of energy management shared by all the actors. Each must be convinced that amelioration is always possible (Kaizen spirit).

What makes the Okavango energy engineering team different ?

As early as the time of the diagnostic, we think about “implementation”. Our exhaustive analysis has to bring us to propose financially figured initiatives with time schedule and qualified by order of complexity of implementation. We are not linked to any machine or energy supplier. Thus, our objectivity enables us to consider every possible solution which reduces energy consumption without damaging the quality of products nor productivity of the site. Systematically, we work in tandem with our Lean expert to challenge these solutions and validate their feasibility close to operational teams

What are the skills of Okavango energy purchasers ?

Today, energy can’t be bought like it was before. On the regulated markets the IT tool developed by Okavango allows to research the best contractual optimization out of thousands of solutions. On the open markets, the challenge is not only in the choice of the provider but also in the definition of an optimal procurement strategy integrating the needs (volume, seasonality, variability), the markets (trends, volatility, financial instrument) and the risks according to the gains.
