Energy efficiency

To ensure the growing demand for energy while making the transition to low-carbon technologies is one of the challenges facing the global community.

Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact and effectively use energy resources in the main production and other ancillary processes. The implementation of measures to improve energy efficiency contributes to achievement of the goal.

Energy Management System

ISO certification contributes to enhancement of the KPO business reputation as a reliable partner of the Republic of Qazaqstan that takes appropriate action to meet both regulatory requirements and international standards.

In August 2020, KPO successfully conducted a certification audit for compliance with the new ISO 50001:2018 standard version. The audit was conducted by RINA, the new certification authority.

Following the audit, the Company did not receive any non-conformance, and the KPO Energy Management System was recognized as efficient and corresponding to the international standards.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the scheduled energy audit actions were partially implemented and postponed to 2021.

Energy saving activities

Pursuant to the approved KPO’s Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Improvement Action Plan, the following actions were taken in 2020:

  • The activities on replacement of traditional lamps with LEDs bulbs at production and ancillary facilities were continued. In 2020, 683 lamps were replaced at the Company`s facilities. Estimated economy of energy consumption from the traditional lamps replacement was about 132,950 KW/h.
  • Enhancement of fuel gas accounting including early works on the metering device installation were performed.
