Background

Our client are the largest commercial ship repair and conversion specialist in the UK with sites spanning from Tyne & Wear down to Falmouth. They are a world class fabrication, engineering and marine solutions company with a rich heritage capable of the most demanding project. Previously utilising fixed price procurement direct with suppliers, our client tendered for a new energy procurement partner whilst also seeking to review how they were purchasing energy and whether this was the more appropriate method to address their business needs.

Challenge

With a contract spend of around £3.3million, increasing in a rising energy market, our client required a full cost benefit analysis of procurement options for their portfolio renewal. There were added complexities to this portfolio in that consumption requirements of the sites vary widely based on the business activity of the sites - the Optimised Trading & Risk Management team needed to address these within the analysis. The client also needed to set accurate budgets when the contract was signed, ahead of the supply delivery period.

Quick Facts

Solution

The strategy scoping session concluded appetite for flexibly traded products, aiming to secure competitive energy rates whilst minimising risk to the clients financial position. A full market tender was issued, with focus on ability to reforecast within the contract term. The Optimised Energy Flex Connect product was concluded to best meet the procurement needs identified. Flex Connect gives clients the opportunity to purchase their energy by spreading risk through multiple trades made as part of a group portfolio, whilst also providing access to wider volume tolerance mechanisms than a singular contract term would offer.
