PROjEN’s Success in Exceeding the Corporate Energy Reduction

PROjEN are a progressive, multi-disciplined project management company that have the skill, focus and discipline to ensure that projects are not only completed on time and within budget but fully achieve their intended purpose. Nothing more so than delivering results as an integrated part of the team that is exceeding GlaxoSmithKline’s ambitious energy reduction targets.

Between May 2009 and April 2010 the Stevenage Chemistry Pilot Plant has managed to reduce its energy requirements by 56 million kWh, relating to a saving of £250,000 and 1,600 tonnes of CO2. The Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) is therefore 6% ahead of the GSK corporate target to achieve a 20% reduction in energy usage by the end of 2010.

The energy savings achieved on this project are testimony to PROjEN’s ability to provide efficient interim Capital / Energy management services for their clients as well as ensuring all projects managed by the Company include project lifecycle consideration. Martin Seabrook, PROjEN’s Managing Director comments:

“The energy savings achieved on this site demonstrate the experience and professionalism of our Project / Energy Management professionals. It is a great initiative and is becoming more and more of an issue as clients realise that massive energy cost increases can have a devastating effect on their business. PROjEN’s focus is to help ensure GSK exceed the 2015 target of a 45% reduction and to this intent PROjEN are now holding monthly Energy reduction meetings with GSK”.

PROjEN’s record for client retention is exceptional and the outstanding Energy Saving statistics highlight PROjEN’s commitment to sustaining long-term business success with both their current and prospective clients. PROjEN’s industry professionals have supported their clients over the last 30 years on a range of Technical solutions and more recently in the reduction of energy consumption and their associated costs. The company’s energy management team are dedicated to ensure that they safeguard precious resources and help clients to retain their hard earned profits.

Simon comments;

“PROjEN is undertaking a critical role on behalf of their clients and I feel privileged to be asked to lead operations and very excited about the opportunity. PROjEN has much to be proud about in its achievements so far, yet there remains opportunity for operational improvements that will further differentiate the business in the market and underpin the relationships with key clients. PROjEN’s business model, to develop close strategic relationships with their customers sits well with my own business ethos and approach and I look forward to building on the important relationships with our customers and stakeholders who have an important role in PROjEN’s future success”.

PROjEN has enjoyed consistent growth to the extent that both sales and personnel numbers have trebled over the last five years. Moving offices in October last year to 50% larger premises in Preston Brook has allowed PROjEN to provide a superior working environment and scope for further anticipated growth.
