Vale’s Manitoba Operations have a long-standing partnership with Manitoba Hydro and recently produced a short video about the utility’s Power Smart program. The video, featuring Lovro Paulic, director of Vale’s Manitoba Operations, outlines some of the things the Company has done to reduce our energy consumption. These measures include replacing lights, installing insulation and energy efficient windows, and upgrading pumps and compressors.

“We’ve tried to use every Power Smart system possible to assist with remaining competitive and reducing our environmental footprint,” Paulic says, noting that the company is saving about $750,000 every year on energy costs due to these Power Smart modifications. “It’s important to our business, our employees and our community that we reduce our environmental footprint.”

Vale’s Manitoba Operations have been involved with Power Smart since its inception in the early 1990’s.
