REDUCING ENERGY INEFFICIENCIES
We have rolled out a programme to replace inefficient rectifiers and old generators, as well as to connect some unconnected sites to commercial power (so far, 394 out of 424 sites have been connected). We also are replacing our back-up batteries with more efficient cyclic batteries.
We have developed a site cost tool to manage fuelling process and payment, which will address problems of fuel theft and visibility of stock. Installation is still in progress, but we already have improved our fuelling process management at 1,800 sites, reducing our average spend on fuel from 140 litres to 80 litres per day.
We have been addressing challenges relating to the project management of our fuel management system (FMS) through regular feedback meetings and by including other stakeholders, such as field engineers and security personnel. The system has now been rolled out at 1,715 out of 2,000 sites.
