The difference is that today we call it work safety rules and procedures, we train people, we provide them with personal safety equipment, and make improvements in working conditions to ensure safe working.

Increased energy efficiency through maintenance

Improved energy efficiency is reflected in the KPIs of a production plant as savings and efficient production.

Maintpartner’s practice is to prepare a detailed action plan for each contract site. The plan includes development proposals regarding e.g. production processes, operating model and facility management, where energy efficiency plays an important role.

- Through maintenance we can help to get savings in energy costs and support our customers in implementing the EU energy directive. According to the directive, large companies have to carry out an energy audit every four years. The audit focuses on actions and planned activities to improve energy efficiency. We can help with these actions, says Markku Simola, Country President for Maintpartner in Finland.
