Future of Energy... WORLD’s FASTEST GROWING TECHNLOGOY… Renewable Energy has various reasons of why it is booming on a steeply inclined curve. Success stories brought people to the interest of inquiring about what lies beneath and questions were raised. There are many technologies offering renewable energy, however this article will mainly focus on the solar energy.
How does Elsewedy Electric participate in the renewable energy? Two of Elsewedy Electric fully subsidies are: Elsewedy Solar & SWEG “Elsewedy Wind Energy Generation”. The two subsidies’ LoB is mainly resolved within the solar energy, wind energy and energy efficiency management. The applications provided through the technologies vary on a diversified scale starting from small mobile applications up to a stationary mega project, such as empowering a town. Why did Elsewedy Electric start operating within the renewable energy sector?
ELSEWEDY ELECTRIC AFRICA
A consistent relation between upto-date technology and earth have been opposing each other in a ferocious fight on a battlefield extending beyond the horizon that has lasted for years and as we sit & watch “the evolution of technology”, we only witness how mother earth is being impounded to the ground on the verge of surrendering. Many successful scientists, diplomats, businessmen and symbolic individuals/entities started mapping and implementing plans & actions on how to befriend the unstable equation by emplacing lots of efforts, studies, labor, rules, laws and investment in the pursue of successful achievement. How we watched washed up animals rounded up and counted out of the circle of life, or how we watched people suffering from an over polluted water source or even an environment that has lead to the undergoing of many. Numerous examples lay before our very own eyes to contemplate at before we thrive to put a halt to. Furthermore, renewable energy has proved the unbounded fortune it has conveyed to poor, moderate and wealthy countries. How can renewable energy bring fortune to individuals, entities or countries? Renewable Energy is a literal naming to the technology, where the energy is literally renewable and through its projects, roadmaps, pipelines and scope of work it has a proven record to increase a country’s gross domestic product, job vacancies, increased income, enhanced economical standards and a unique pollution free environment. For example, you implement a
solar photovoltaic power plant, regardless it’s on/off – grid, hybrid or not. Allow us to journey together discovering the condensed weighty benefit. - Save mother earth. You get to produce electricity with a negligible running cost with no power production pollution, not even sound pollution. - Own a system with a very long time and reduced risks, such as the 25 years performance guarantee. - Increased net profits, which has been proven to be much more beneficial than increasing sales. - Bring in geographically wide spread countries to collaborate incoherence. - Help the poor and the ones in need. Speaking of solar, what technologies are out and about? Solar Industry has been divided and then again sub-divided to fall under main categories. Some are industrial and some are mega scale commercial. Technologies vary within the thermal solar water heaters, concentrated solar power and electrical applications (e.g. Photovoltaic, Concentrated Photovoltaic). Elsewedy Solar is currently involved within the PV, CPV and solar water heaters technology including CSP in our futuristic LoB roadmap. If Elsewedy Electric found a dwelling benefit that shall befall the organization’s international/local market and other individual/entities, how does our company penetrate the market? In conclusion to various analysis and study results, Elsewedy Solar has pur-
sued various projects, programs and operation strategies, such as: - Initiation of a Research, Development and Deployment project. - Initiation of a PV and CPV production program. - Operating on national and international market and product awareness. - Leading turnkey solutions, where we can Engineer, Procure, Construct, Operate and Maintain. - To support our believes, we have also included our capability to invest within given projects. - Through the utilization Elsewedy Electric’s various fields of operation, we have dedicated many other produced products to aid the market into meeting the highest standards at a very competitive cost, such as the cables, poles and luminaries. Is renewable energy more expensive than conventional energy sources? Some regions have limited awareness of renewable energy; such falsehood derived an obsolete myth. The myth mainly depicted that renewable energy is not economical, which again is not correct or else the technology wouldn’t have taken-off into flight so rapidly. A fair comparison must be applied. A common example we all encounter on daily basis is the cost of running your car, it should differ dramatically depending whether the fuel is subsidized or not. It’s very unfair to having two neighboring petrol stations one being aided by the government with a subsidy and the other is not, surely the subsidized one would prevail. The example applies when comparing renewable
energy to conventional one. If the government wishes to host the solar energy, then it should provide a solution to allow a competing tariff. However, there are some other coherent factors that many do not consider. People believe that the sun is for free, yes it is, but the tools you place to convert its rays into thermal heat or electricity are not, but their cost is covered and waived within a short period of time which is the starting line of a loop generating profits. Usually a renewable energy system will cover its initial cost within the very first years by saving the operating expenditure; such as unneeded fossil fuel consumption and reduced maintenance cost to provide the energy required and hence gaining a fixed asset rather than a devastating expenditure. In addition many organizations have been aiding and assisting the roadmap aligned with renewable technology; such as the money you could get back from the tons of carbon emission saved. Moreover, for an example, a solar power plant is very practical and economical when it comes to handling peak demands and their block rating. To conclude renewable energy is not more expensive than conventional one. Elsewedy Electric’s LoB operates within both segments and some comparisons have been gathered from a prolonged technical/commercial experience in both the conventional & renewable market and emplaced with integrity for your preview. How is the energy efficiency management related to Elsewedy Electric’s renewable energy pipeline?
They are only related in some aspects, but Elsewedy Electric‘s roadmap exceeds beyond profit orientation. Although we are frequently asked to provide a system for X, we still spend our utmost efforts in providing it with reduced tantalizing percentage off the original X required. In some occasions, energy management could flip numbers to translate a project approval rather than a rejection. We do not switch on our air conditioner because we like to, but because we urge the gliding cool breeze on our skin and in our breath. Let’s envisage the forthcoming hypothetical example in answering the true question; would you still switch on your air conditioner if you had the room temperature you desire? We presume the answer is NO and for more than one reason. To reduce your expenditure, avoid noise pollution and probably other reasons and thoughts have started unraveling themselves. Here comes energy management, energy management doesn’t mean we will constrain your demands under obscure requests and depriving implementation, NO. Energy management will provide exactly what you request in an alternative method, but by the end of the day, it’s our mission and your guarantee that you get what you exactly and precisely asked for. This is energy efficiency management. You get the same solution for a cheaper initial and running cost. That said you get to preserve and protect our environment. A better world and a reduced pollution should make every breathing soul happy and healthy.

or Customer Relationship Management, is a company-wide business strategy designed to reduce costs and increase profitability by solidifying customer loyalty. True CRM brings together information from all data sources within an organization (and where appropriate, from outside the organization) to give one, holistic view of each customer in real time. This allows customer facing employees in such areas as sales, customer support, and marketing to make quick yet informed decisions on everything from cross-selling and upselling opportunities to target marketing strategies to competitive positioning tactics. There are a variety of definitions that exist in the marketplace: • Some say CRM is implementing customer service automation so that customer service representatives have access to detailed customer profiles and content scripts for customer service provision • Some say CRM is supply chain management process such that all processes related to customer and supplier relationships are integrated. • Some say CRM is having the ability to
ELSEWEDY ELECTRIC AFRICA
improve the effectiveness and efficiency of enterprise marketing automation or direct marketing campaigns and lead generation. In fact, Elsewedy Electric has seen that CRM actually represents an enterprise business strategy that involves focusing knowledge, business processes and organizational structures around customers and prospect for the whole organization. Surrounding this business strategy is an information technology infrastructure consisting of data warehouses, decision engines and integrated middleware for touchpoints/channels in order to better understand customer behaviour and respond in a timely and relevant manner.
Elsewedy Electric CRM has evolved into a customer-centric philosophy that permeates the entire organization. The three key elements to the successful CRM initia-
tive are: people, process, and technology. The people throughout our company-from the CEO to each and every customer service rep buy in to and support CRM. The company’s business processes are being reengineered to bolster its CRM initiative, often from the view of, how can this process better serve the customer? Our in-house built CRM technology drive these improved processes, provide the best data to the employees, and is easy enough to operate that users won’t balk. Being a subset of Elsewedy Electric’s Enterprise Relationship Management (ERM), The CRM empowers the organization with comprehensive software for managing organization-wide Sales, Marketing, Customer Support and Service in a single business system. The CRM can effectively help marketing plan their marketing activities, improve the quality of leads generation and additionally measure the performance and effectiveness (ROI) of marketing campaigns. It tracks leads, prospects, and effectively uses customer data for up-selling and cross-selling business opportunities. Elsewedy Electric’s CRM empowers the Customer Support process through seamless integration between sales (pre-sales and post-sales activities) with Customer Support practice. The CRM’s Reports & Dashboards functionality provides visuals to sales pipelines, business performance, trends and schedule broad yet intelligent reports to specified users.
Diversity “ Hedge Against Risk by going International”
iversity or diversification, as it is labeled in the world of business, is a business strategy or a technique that reduces the company’s risk by allocating investments among various financial instruments, industries, markets, or other categories. Most investment professionals and risk managers agree that, although it does not guarantee against loss, diversification is one of the most important element to reach long-term goals for an organization with minimum risk. In this article we look at why this is true, and how to accomplish international diversification based on Elsewedy Electric’s own experience as a model employer for diversity. Companies face a number of risks that stem primarily from the nature of doing business. In Beyond Value at Risk, Kevin Dowd sums up these different types of risks companies face by placing them in five general categories: 1) Business risks: those associated with an organization’s particular market or industry; 2) Market risks: those
ELSEWEDY ELECTRIC AFRICA
associated with changes in market conditions, such as inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates; 3) Credit risks: those associated with debtors default; 4) Operational risks: those associated with internal system failures or human error; 5) Legal risks: those associated with the possibility of other parties not meeting their contractual obligations. Diversification not only does it help companies avoid risks associated with their business activities, but also, it allows business organizations to step out of the realm of the business primary operations, and to instead expand their sphere of influence by leveraging their existing knowledge into new areas. As a matter of fact, many businesses grow by taking opportunities to diversify, although this can pose some risks, such as costly delays and mistakes owing to lack of knowledge or expertise, but it can also limit the impact of changes in the market. For example, if you produce only one product or service and its sales drop, it leaves you
very exposed, but if you have two or more products or services and sales of one drop, at least there will be revenue coming into the business through the other. The theory behind the diversification is that industrial related factors or sector specific factors will affect each stock within that industry. An investor who has stocks diversified among industry can reduce the risk of these factors. International diversification is the same theory by using investments from other countries and markets. An example which is consistent with the aforementioned theory is the financial crisis that US passed through, that resulted in plunging the US stock market s to very low levels. The crisis affected all stockholders in the American markets. An investor who had investments in different markets around the world would not have been affected as much because of the international diversification.
“The international markets allows investors to create opportunities that domestic markets do not offer” Benefits of international diversification is countless but it’s major benefits are mentioned in the diagram
Elsewedy Electric’s guidance of going international The task of going international is not an easy one, neither is it as complicated as envisioned by some, particularly those that are newto-international. The same, basic business principles used in your home market will be applied abroad. There are some differences, but many factors like culture and legal restrictions which are typically cited as major hurdles in international business, also have an impact on domestic business transactions. In order to expand internationally, there are two requirements that must be satisfied. First is commitment, which is a crucial condition
for success. The firm must be committed to the venture, and the commitment includes the upper-level management. Like your domestic customers, international buyers demand reliable sources. The amount of commitment required goes beyond that necessary to fill the unsolicited trade placed by foreign buyers. The potential sales from international businesses are well worth the effort and commitment. A second prerequisite to going international is the readiness to change. A company which introduces new and different products into a market initiates change within the culture. Yet, it is unlikely that a firm will be able to sell its products in a foreign environment without making some changes too. A living example which is consistent with the entire concept of national/ international diversification is Elsewedy Electric; our geographical expansion allowed us to implement international diversification thus ensuring that we can react quickly to the dynamic shifts constantly experienced in the international market and by that we are not tied to a particular market or a particular trade flow.

Continuous Improvement Deployment Structure
The deployment structure was made up of leadership and belts. Leadership in the deployment role owns and supports Lean implementation activities and assures that trained Lean Six Sigma facilitators (Belts) are available. Implementation and deployment was led by the Quality Director who accounted for communication, coordination, integration, and alignment of Lean / Six Sigma deployment and implementation and act as the Lean / Six Sigma Champion to ensure all Lean activities & improvement projects conducted and aligned with the defined value stream(s).
Progressive 5S + S
With the operators, Progressive 5S were explained s by s and broken down into its essence so that each step can be paired with the specific task or activity along with a key discipline or behavior that would need to be performed for that step. This approach offers one big advantage: it allows practitioners to concentrate on their 5S implementation one level at a time until the step is fully implemented and sustained. The underlying logic to progressive 5S is that successes and opportunities can be quantified at each step thus providing a clear roadmap as to what will be required to progress up to the next level. A clean, well-organized workplace is therefore was the foundation upon which all other lean activities and productivity achievements are based. Besides that, implementing 5S had multiple benefits: it creates the proper environment for standard work, is a prerequisite to perfect quality, encourages visual control, helps identify waste, promotes employee satisfaction and places a high value on safety (the sixth S).

Momentum started to build and change began to occur more quickly once the company got over the hurdle of two or three events and got good results. Team spirit became evident once everyone understood that this was obviously very different from anything the company had done before. On top of those issues was the fact that the plant was unionized, so management also had to gain the trust and cooperation of the union. Union stewards were included on the first several kaizen events to give them the real flavor of what it was all about, and they saw for themselves that the kaizen process would actually improve work conditions for their members. Those stewards were then able to communicate to the rest of the organization in the positive changes that could be effected through kaizen.
The changes that helped to jump start cultural change were varied: • Machines were improved • Methods were changed • Jobs were made easier • Tools were given to help operators get the job done • Operators saw their working environment improve • Managers worked alongside operators (destroying the “us vs. them” mentality)
For the first six months of Egytech Cables lean journey, kaizen events were focused on set-up reductions. Set-ups were the first and most prevalent barrier to increasing productivity and so had to be addressed before anything else. The team focused on the stranding process which was riddled with time-consuming machine set-ups and had the greatest impact on productivity. The kaizen team introduced new tools, fitted safety guards to the machine, created standard operations, provided visibility of workload for the operation, repaired the loader mechanism, and replaced the bobbin locking pins. The team reduced set-up time on this machine by 30 percent and improved the progressive 5S score from 0.48 to 0.7.
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
Once set-ups had been addressed, the company moved on to other issues, including the introduction of total productive maintenance (TPM), as well as creation charts for key machines and safety, quality, delivery, and cost (SQDC) boards throughout the plant.

Every morning before 8 a.m. the management team walks through the plant and visits each station to review performance. This practice gave the managers an honest hands-on feel for what is happening on the shop floor and kept their involvement in the lean transformation process in front of everyone.
Achieved Results: In just less than 18 months, Egytech Cables has made dramatic changes as a result of its lean / six sigma deployment: • Set-up times reduced by 30 % • Material scrap reduced by 42 % • Materials over usage reduced by (35% in Egytech) • Machine changeover times reduced by approximately 35% • Reduced the WIP/RM/F.G inventory. • Improved on time delivery. • Customer complains reduced by 82%. • Improved output in monetary terms.
The Culture Challenge & the Culture Change
Egytech Cables faced the challenges of a workforce that had never heard of lean and that was also well-established and long-serving, with employees who were used to doing things the way they would always do them. The issues the company faced were typical of those encountered whenever a lean transformation is implemented, Job-loss fears, More work for the operators, “Us vs. Them”, All show (just painting the machines), … Management played a significant role in driving early cultural change by participating in the early events. Through their enthusiasm and
While Egytech Cables is counting on standard work, 5S, work safety, changeovers, reduced batch sizes, and set-up reductions to help reduce lead times; it’s also looking at other areas where a lean /six sigma approach can be applied. With the pressing need of set-up reductions having been addressed, in 2010, Egytech is focusing on inventory reduction of imported RM. With the current global recession, the company expects that sales volume will not grow as it did in the last few years. Given the cost of raw materials, it makes sense to make sure that Egytech Cables keep on hand only what they actually need or can sell in a timely manner. Additionally, the company is working on improving relationships with
support for the process they helped others to get on board. They got the message out that Egytech Cables was committed to lean and demonstrated enthusiasm for their experiences on those first kaizen events. The company also started a newsletter, to spread the benefits that were gained from them. Suddenly people weren’t waiting for kaizen events to make changes and improvements in areas that were not actually slated for events, and that’s when the culture really started to pick up and change. The cultural atmosphere at the Egytech facilities is completely different now than it was just 18 months ago.
suppliers and making physical reductions in the amount of materials—the copper that goes into the cable is obviously very expensive, as is the galvanized armor materials. The company is also striving to reduce work in process. So far, more recent events have focused on improving the planning activity for better clarity and understanding by introducing a sales and operations planning process to better align production to demand. As Egytech Cables moves forward, it will continue to use lean to help increase productivity, reduce lead times, and cut costs while also focusing on sustainment. When the world economy turns around, the company plans will be in a good lean position to make the most of it.

Be Competitive, Maximize your Profite
by Abdelazim El Harrass Managing Director Elsewedy Electric for Transmission & Distribution
“The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand” Energy management establishes the means for guarding the wealth that energy represents; it is like currency, can be invested, preserved, and positioned to grow a business. Companies that understand this will manage energy like cash, tracking what they consume, waste, recover, and apply to the creation of wealth. The technologies, practices, and standards for optimizing energy transformation are known collectively as “energy efficiency.” Energy efficiency initiatives are selected for their potential to reduce waste, minimize expenses, save time, reduce operating risk, and increase revenues through enhanced productivity, so it includes the monitoring, measuring, verification, and remediation of energy flows throughout a facility. Many organizations still perceive energy as something less than wealth. Facilities can lose valuable energy in a myriad of ways: inefficient combustion, steam and compressed air leaks, radiant heat transfer, and motor drives left running when there’s no material in production, so if manufacturers handle energy as anything less than wealth, there is no accounting of energy’s contribution to value added. A large organization may have an army of clerks who track $20 taxicab receipts, yet no one can clearly account for the disposition of its $20 million in annual energy expenditures.

__Why Energy Management is required: • Business, industry and government organizations have all been under tremendous economic and environmental pressures in the last few years. • Meeting more stringent environmental quality standards, primarily related to reducing global warming and reducing acid rain. •Becoming—or continuing to be—economically competitive in the global marketplace, which requires reducing the cost of production or services. • Energy management can make the difference between profit and loss and can establish real competitive enhancements for most companies. • Maintaining energy supplies that are Available without significant interruption, and available at costs that do not fluctuate too rapidly. __Detected Sources of Energy waste: • Much energy is needlessly wasted in buildings through poor design and maintenance of electrical services. • The environmental impact of air-conditioning equipment is a catastrophic from an environmental point of view, since it contributes directly to atmospheric ozone depletion through the leakage of refrigerants which are powerful greenhouse gases, and contributes to global warming by consuming large amounts of electricity and indirectly releases large quantities of CO 2 into the atmosphere. • Refrigeration chillers are often oversized because system designers overestimate peak building heat gains to ensure that plant is not undersized. • Unwanted heat loss or gain through the walls or roofs of buildings, and heat loss from the pipes, tanks and other equipment in buildings or plants can significantly increase energy use and energy costs. So, we believe that Energy management is the judicious and effective use of energy to maximize profits and enhance competitive positions. Our Mission: Is to help our valued customers through our Intensive Energy Audit management program and skilled Engineering staff to: • Improve energy efficiency and reducing energy use, thereby reducing costs. • Cultivate good communications on energy matters. • Develop and maintain effective monitoring, reporting, and management strategies for wise energy usage. •Find new and better ways to increase returns from energy
investments through research and development. • Developing interest in and dedication to the energy management program from all employees. • Reducing the impacts of curtailments, brownouts, or any interruption in energy supplies.
__What is An Energy Audit: • Is one of the first tasks to be performed in the accomplishment of an effective energy cost control program. • It consists of a detailed examination of how a facility uses energy, what the facility pays for that energy, and finally, a recommended energy conservation program. • It includes Process review that involves large motors and controls, industrial insulation, complex combustion monitoring , unique steam distribution problems, significant amounts of waste heat, etc , steps for process improvement in order of changes are : eliminate, combine , change equipment , person, place, or sequence, and improve. • Is performed by several different groups of professional engineers from our staff to perform the detailed audits needed by companies with complex process equipment and operations. • Energy management audit involves skilled Engineers covering Engineering, management, Economics, Financial analysis, Operations research (system analysis), Public relations (selling conservation), and Environmental engineering fields.

__Energy Management Ideas in Electrical system: • Reactive electrical loads unlike resistive loads draw a larger current than would be anticipated by their useful power rating, such as induction motors and fluorescent tubes. By using VSDs it is possible to ensure that even if fans and pumps are oversized, energy consumption will not be greatly increased. • Lighting improvements are excellent investments in most commercial businesses because lighting accounts for a large part of the energy bill—ranging from 30-70% of the total energy. • Energy-saving Lamps. Energy-saving fluorescent lamps which can replace the standard lamps can reduce power demand and energy use by about 15%. • Electromagnetic Ballast results in excess energy losses, typically in the region of 15 – 20% of total energy consumption. Electronic ballasts consume up to 30% less power than conventional chokes and increase lamp life. • Compact Fluorescent Lamps are used to replace incandescent bulbs. These lamps can be used to reduce energy use and power demand by over 70%. • Maintaining the lighting system by establishing lighting system maintenance schedule in addition to a proper choice of light sources, ballasts, and lighting fixtures • Lighting controls can result in substantial energy savings e.g. Time-based control, Daylight-linked control, Occupancy-linked control, Localized switching.
__Energy Management Ideas in Mechanical systems: • Energy is wasted in buildings through the use of inappropriate air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems , because designers of air-conditioning systems are more interested in minimizing first costs rather than reducing overall energy consumption. • Many commercial and industrial facilities use fossil fuel-fired boilers to produce steam or hot water for space heating or for process heating. • Some of the most important boiler efficiency improvements are oxygen/air optimization, load management—matching the boiler capacity to the steam demand, and maintaining the boiler system. • Compressed air is used in process operations and control systems. It is a large energy cost; it shall be designed and operated so that it is as energy efficient as possible by selecting the best types and sizes of air compressor and high efficiency motor.

__Renewable Energy: • While renewable energy sources are not a major percentage of energy sources currently being utilized, their usage is expected to grow substantially, since they are typically less environmentally damaging than traditional energy sources. The future is likely to see more and more utilization of these renewable sources. __Energy Management and Harmonic Effects: Harmonic distortion of power system voltages or currents is always undesirable from the Energy management point of view because: • Harmonic components add to system losses by creating additional heating in power system equipment. • High levels of harmonic voltage distortion can cause equipment disoperation, noise or failure. • Transformer and motor de-rating due to harmonic current and voltage increases the capital cost of equipment for a given application. • Future utility harmonic distortion standards may provide an additional incentive for the selection of equipment with low harmonic current distortion. • The revision of IEEE Std 519-1992 has proposed limits for harmonic current generation by customers, with the utility being responsible for limiting harmonic voltage distortion . We conduct power quality studies with complete system solution including installation of Harmonic filters , conventional capacitor banks , and SVC ( static VAR Compensation) at specific applications in Industry e.g. Arc Furnaces , Traction ,..Etc __Value base Engineering: • Means, Design optimization in line with codes and standards and preserving project quality. Our experienced staff has ( 30 +) years of experience in the field of power system Technology , has conducted several projects design reviews ( 2 to 100 MVA) in the Industrial , commercial , residential ,utilities sectors which resulted in appreciable cost savings for the client between (1525%) from the budgets under review . • Value base engineering through feasible business solution techniques results in optimum equipment selection which shall result in units loading near the maximum efficient loading point and thus decreases energy losses.
through integrating Sustainable Development Customers and investors are increasingly demanding higher standards of performance in environmental and social issues including health and safety, and business ethics, throughout the value chain. On the other hand, there is growing evidence that the environmental and social aspects, when integrated into business analysis and decision making, will offer potential long-term business advantages. It is now commonly accepted that environmental and social aspects factors added insight into the quality of a company’s management, culture, risk profile and other characteristics. Besides that, the substantial benefit in integrating environmental aspects into product design will result in lowering costs, new business opportunities, and improved product quality.

Environment & Community
Today, manufacturing are the major cause of environmental pollution as well as the depletion of resources. Products may have a range of environmental aspects (e.g. emission generated) that results environmental impact (e.g. air pollution), Environmental impacts are largely determined by the material and energy inputs and outputs generated at all stages of products manufacturing and development. Elsewedy Electric effectively promotes environmental conservation activities through the following activities: • Conservation of resources and energy recovery (material and energy) without having an adverse impact on its performance, its durability. • Actively take environmental pollution prevention to reduce its impacts. • Focusing on waste assessment and implementing environmental friendly techniques for recycling it. • Comply with relevant health & safety and environmental legislation, regulation and other requirement • Enhance environmental friendly procurement activities. • The delivery of products free of hazardous substances (comply with ROHS/ REACH directives or similar ) • Environmental early integration of Product related issues such as, material selection, product design and functionality. • Apply the principle of the BAT-”Best Available Techniques”, as far as possible to reduce environmental impact and risks in manufacturing activities. • The continual improvement in all activities to reduce environmental impact and risks. • Increase environmentally conscious products and ingredient. • Promote more efficient use of non-renewable resources through continuous monitoring and target setting. • Motivating and training employees with respect to environmental issues, safety at work, emergency drills and fire extinguisher drills.
Restriction of Hazardous Substances - ROHS Directive
ROHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances & regarding to the European Directive 2002/95/EC of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, called “ROHS directive” and its existing application regulations. ROHS requires the limitation of the following substances: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium,
Hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The purpose of the ROHS Directive is to minimize the quantities of hazardous substances passing from electrical and electronic products into the environment through waste. The requirements on manufacturers are to reduce the levels of these substances below the 0.1% limits which is verified by chemical testing.
Resources & Waste Management
Wire drawing, for instance, requires the use of drawing emulsion, the useful life of which is limited and which must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Soft annealing the wires also requires a large amount of electrical energy. Cable production involves the use of a wide variety of insulation materials made of plastic, where the key question pertains to the form of recycling that makes sense. In addition, the use of packaging that is as suitable for transport and as environmentally friendly as possible also plays a role here.
Green Environmental Initiatives
Since climate change has become one of the global concerns, invading renewable energy becomes a natural move towards a significant part of the solution of this concern. “Elsewedy Electric entry into the cutting –edge of the wind energy sector on September 2009 to harness this energy was a strategic move through providing complete solutions in the wind energy branch, including towers, wind energy generators, blades, and turnkey solutions for wind farm projects.
REACH is the overall EU chemical legislation that came into effect on June 1st, 2007 (REACH regulation 1907/2006).The purpose of REACH is to reduce the impact of certain chemical substances on human beings and the environment, by ensuring that the individual substances are used in a safe way throughout the entire supply chain. The key requirement is related to possible content of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), selected among substances that are problematic in relation to human health or the environment, their concentration threshold of 0.1% (w/w) applies to the product as produced or imported to EU, When the SVHC is present in the article in a concentration of 0.1% or more and the imported amount of the SVHC exceeds 1 ton per year, a notification of substances in product is required and the supplier of products containing a SVHC in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) has to provide relevant safety information about the substance to his costumers- as a minimum the name of the substance has to be communicated. Also, all packaging material for the product must have SVHC declarations.
Finally, acting with social responsibility towards society and those involved in the production of our products, and ensuring safe working conditions for them means integrating sustainable development into our growth strategy through establishing and implementing high standards in environmental and social related issues including health and safety, and business ethics, throughout the value chain.
For PVC materials, supplier’s declarations, tests for the content of plasticizers and flame retardants are necessary in order to fulfill the regulatory requirements.

quality security.. Due to growing costs of electricity, energy theft is a major concern for all the actors involved in the energy management process. Consumers with a more â€œinventive touchâ€? have found numerous ways of manipulating their electricity meter for effectively using power free of charge. With a reduced human role in energy management processes, devices with modern anti tampering features protecting customer valuable information are a must have. Iskraemeco contemporary meters include state-of-the-art security features, located in the hardware and the software part.
evenue losses caused by electricity theft have impact on the quality of supply, electrical load on the generating station and the tariff imposed on usage by real customers. In addition, electricity theft leads to numerous additional losses, such as damage to grid infrastructure and reduction of grid reliability. Free power consumption leads to higher uncontrollable consumption at peak times and consequently to higher overall electricity cost to the utility. There are safety hazards connected with the pirate connection to the grid, where both thieves and the general public are endangered. Although hard to estimate, the above costs exceed the primarily estimated damages of electricity theft. A decisive device that detects, quantifies and controls energy theft are contemporary meters. These meters contain hardware and software that detect electricity theft of various types. The meters can be managed remotely to disconnect and reconnect the power supply to the customer so that the theft alert reaction is immediate if necessary. The alarms are transmitted via concentrator and the communication system in order for the area manager to receive fraud alarms in real time. Iskraemeco places special attention to meter data protection. The contemporary meters detect tampering attempts and create conditions that enable proper billing processes.

These meters contain hardware and software that detect electricity theft of various types
The meters hold comprehensive event loggers with anti-fraud and security features that enable the utility to immediately discover tamper and attempt to physically access the meter. Only a few of the features protecting our customers’ revenue are shortly described below.
Sealed and detected
Anti tampering measures are included in the hardware and as well as in the software part of the devices. Externally, all the meters are sealed and secured with a wire and a lead or plastic seal. A detector of meter and terminal cover opening is built into the meter. The manipulative event is registered in the logbook and properly displayed on the LCD.
For further protection, a detector of an external magnetic field is built into the meters. If such a field is detected, the event gets registered in the corresponding log. If necessary, consumed energy during meter tampering with a permanent magnet can be registered into a separate register.
The option of registering positive energy, nevertheless in which direction energy flows, prevents further meter misuse, triggered by inappropriate connection of the conductors in the terminal block. In this way registered energy is equal to the one actually consumed, regardless of the meter connection. In addition, an alarm flag REV is displayed on the LCD when energy flows in reversed direction.
Contemporary Iskraemeco meters are protected with three passwords. The passwords protect meters against unauthorized meter data reading, against changing the meters parameters and against setting time and date parameters in the meters RTC. If the wrong password is entered three times in a row, the communication channel is disabled for a certain time in order to prevent attempts of hacking the meter.
flowing through the neutral circuit. The microcontroller calculates a vector sum of the currents flowing through the lines and compares it with a current flowing through the neutral circuit. If this difference is higher than 6%, this event is registered and the corresponding flag is displayed on the LCD.
Fraud energy registered
Contemporary meters have registers in which energy is separately registered during meter tampering. The registers record a reversed energy flow direction, permanent magnet field exposure and energy registered since the meter and terminal cover have been opened.
A soft protection
The software for meter data management makes manipulative attempts even harder through the software logging process and the multi level authorization procedure. In addition, the software database keeps data on who, when and what has been done with a particular meter.
On request, a fourth metering element can be built into the meters. It measures current

Cutting losses at Kosovo`s utility Kosovo Energy Corporation J.S.C. (KEK) has published a series of tenders in the past year for the purpose of modernizing its electrical energy sector. For now, the priority of the utility is substituting the mechanical equipment with a modern and highly efficient solution. Shifting from present metering equipment to Iskraemeco`s latest technology will present a significant reduction of losses to Kosovo`s utility. KEK is currently managing its energy sector with mechanical metering equipment that contributes to a considerable amount of losses. A replacement of the existing system with electricity meters produced by Iskraemeco is thus a smart step for KEK. The transition is essential also because a significant amount of the installed meter population is not calibrated properly. The company is currently faced with a proportionally high percent of technical and commercial losses. Iskraemeco meters for industrial, commercial and residential use will be installed in 8.000 transformer stations, located across the entire Kosovo territory. For the moment, Iskraemeco is in the phase of supplying 8.000 industrial and commercial meters and 10.000 residential meters to KEK. After the installation of new meters, it will be possible to make a comparison between the supplied and actually received electrical energy. With the new metering
equipment, KEK will be able to make a complete network analysis and diminish a considerable amount of present losses. Iskraemeco is strongly dedicated towards nurturing the established cooperation and would like to continue helping the customer in improving business processes and energy management in future engagements. For this purpose, the Kosovo team already visited Iskraemeco for a series of training courses that will enable them to apply the obtained knowledge in the best possible way. KEK is the power corporation of the Republic of Kosovo. After a series of changes in the last twenty years, the company was legally incorporated in 2005 and ever since its core businesses are the production of coal and energy, energy supply, sales and customer care service. The company is organized into four main divisions: mines, generation, distribution and supply.
