Increasing Output: Energy Metering
"The critical improvements Chartwell delivered brought our planned deliveries back on track and prepared us for the unprecedented ramp in demand our customers have requested over the next five years." - Steve Cunningham, SVP Infrastructure Programmes EMEA
Energy Management – Landis+Gyr, Smart Gas Metering

To assess potential and find ways to increase output and quality rapidly, without further capital expenditure.
- Output was increased by 72%
- Unit scrap costs were more than halved
- £3.4m of cost over-runs were recovered
- Order backlog with existing customers was cleared
Why was Chartwell brought on board?
The UK leader in Smart Gas Metering required a four-fold increase in output over a 2 year period. The client had already improved significantly and had a capital plan in place, but this would still be insufficient to meet demand during 2016 and 2017.
