      Acting as the team leader, this project saw the rise of the biomass boilers efficiency from 45% to 70%. This led to lowering of steam costs by over 40% and reduction of number of boilers running From 8 to 6 during peak period. This was possible through: 1. Fuel conversion I.e. coal to biomass. 2. Revamping of steam distribution system. 3. Improvement of maintenance schedule. 4. Retraining of firemen
