Certification to Energy Management System, ISO 50001:2011
As a part of our journey towards excellence, sustaining the process of continual improvement, strengthening our systems and working towards our next goal, our refinery at Vadinar took an important step forward by implementing ISO 50001:2011. This involved a commitment from top management and was initiated by creating a roadmap, creating awareness amongst employees and contractors, conducting workshops, training sessions and quiz competitions. The energy policy was also released by the management.
To implement the system, a large number of EMS internal auditors were trained and certified and the system reviewed by DNV. An ERP was installed to capture and analyse performance and keep the management updated on the status of its implementation. Existing SOP’s were revised and a new SOP introduced to standardise implementation throughout the Company. The benefits of implementing an energy management system have included energy savings, cost savings, efficiency and a reduction in emissions.
