Main purpose of the Position
To deliver on proper management of industrial services focusing on power i.e. the generation and distribution of power.
A day in the life of…
Factory operations run all day, however, the first thing you will do after resumption in the morning is to check and read the previous days’ report books, logbooks & checklists. Then carry out an inspection of the factory installations, machines and facilities – to ensure performance standards are met and utility generated is being well optimized
You then verify your data, to ensure proper capturing of all electricity generation data on the system, which are inputted/captured by both operators and through SCADA systems so you can proceed to analyze.
Once done with data verification, you move to detailed analysis. Where analysis results show exceptions, you curiously investigate, to identify the root cause and channel concerns to the appropriate quarters. As much as possible, mitigation of a reoccurrence is the goal
After analyzing data and preparing reports (giving reasons for abnormalities), you will have to visit the relevant installations, interact with the shop floor colleagues, and investigate. Understanding the production processes and how utilities are used is an added advantage especially at this point.
Some of the reports you generate will feed into daily, weekly and monthly reviews/meetings, etc. As a result, you will spend some time tailoring required reports to meet business needs and may need to train colleagues on operations of the power plant from time to time to deepen their understanding.
Furthermore, you will check the maintenance board to ensure completion of due maintenance activities and update appropriately.
We believe in continuous excellence just as you do too. In this role, you will spend most of your time to improve relevant processes, identifying and developing opportunities for energy and water savings, and implementing resulting projects. This will require your creative and critical thinking to achieve excellent results.
