Answer Al Fanous Glazing

Reduction of the SEWA consumption in the factory by making adjustments to the electric and water consuming devices. Moreover, making slight changes in the business model in order to make high energy consuming machinery redundant and outsourcing tasks which were not regular. This involved strategizing with the Business Development Manager, Operations manager and the Production supervisor. This new strategy has led to a net 25% reductions in monthly electricity bills over a period of 48 months leading to Annual Savings of approx AED 36,000.

Provide details on how your project has benefitted the sustainability realm as well as your organisation, your team & your stakeholders if relevant.

Answer Al Fanous Glazing

"Starting with the conversion of 80w tube lights in the factory and labor accommodation to 18w LED lights, and 40w halogen bulbs in the office to 12w LED bulbs, not only have we increased the brightness quotient all over the factory with higher performing LED’s, but we have also reduced the cost of maintainence, cost of electricity and over all energy consumption from 8.7KW to 1.6KW. Additionally, we have also changed our business model to outsource fragments of the glass manufacturing processes to companies that dedicatedly do the niche processes. This led to a reduction in maintainence cost for low running machinery whilst also allowing us to save approximately 96.5KW of power consumption load on our factory. This of course meant that the cost of logistics had gone up for the outsourced work, but the net delta in cost made it more viable to unload parts of the manufacturing process."

Question

Our strategies have created an overall saving of energy consumption whilst also allowed us to reduce bottomline expenditure, allowing us to secure more projects..

The Business development manager linked in to analyze the trend of glass manufacturing sales which were dipping due to higher production costs due to heavier maintenance. This helped us in understanding that we must outsource the manufacturing components and optimize our costing. Factory manager and Ops manager took the lead on swapping the lighting by understanding maintenance costs and consumption of older lights."
