Phil adds power to PROjEN | PM PROjEN News
PROjEN, the award winning Project Management Company based at Northwich, Cheshire, has appointed industry expert Phil McVan as Energy Consultant responsible for developing the Company’s new energy management services.
Phil has over 25 years specialist industry experience and has been instrumental in helping many blue-chip organisations reduce their energy costs. Phil has been working hard with members of the PROjEN management team to develop the range and scope of a series of energy management products which can be tied in with the Company’s existing project delivery services.
Under Phil’s guidance, PROjEN launched the energy management services to existing clients in the pharmaceutical, food and industrial manufacturing sectors. After a successful test period, these services are now being launched to new clients in these industrial fields and also to large multi centre organisations such as retailers, banks and the leisure industry. The information covering the new services is now available on the PROjEN website with industry information and downloads planned to follow.
The services that have been added to our existing ability to implement energy projects are wide ranging and include :-part time or interim energy management, carbon trust surveys and funding, purchasing in risk markets, bill validation & recovery services, SMART metering, monitoring & targeting, energy management training, environmental legislation support services – IPPC and climate change levy, feasibility studies, project management of energy reduction programmes, process engineering support, engineering design services, carbon trading advice.
Phil joined PROjEN in June and has already been in hot demand to provide support and advice from those stirred into action from media reports or the impact on their bottom line.
John Taylor, Managing Director at PROjEN said, “Many of our clients have been hit hard by the uncertainty in the energy markets and have been asking us for a while to assist them in reducing energy costs, usage and helping them plan for the future. Our key strength was implementing identified industrial projects to enable savings to be made. What we lacked in our service was the ability to identify what projects should be tackled and in what priority. Phil is a great addition to the management team and the appointment of such a well respected industry expert is ideal for PROjEN and our clients. We can now offer a much wider service which brings together how best to monitor and reduce energy usage, when and how to buy, how to comply with legislation, what governmental subsidies and tax incentives and then most importantly provide the skills, resources and project leadership to deliver the projects identified along the way. What we offer now is a full energy consultancy service but supported by tried and proven implementation experience.. I am sure both existing as well as new clients will benefit greatly from Phil’s extensive industry knowledge”
