MAHAGENCO Implements SAP ERP To Optimise Energy

SAP has won the prestigious contract from the Maharashtra Power Generation Co. LTD (MAHAGENCO) to standardise business processes and optimise energy and natural resource efficiency in order to improve profitability and deliver better energy for the citizens of Maharashtra. The project will be implemented by L&T InfoTech and is scheduled to go live by December 2011.

MAHAGENCO generates and supplies of electricity, and strives to fully meet the energy needs of the state by value enhancements. With an installed capacity of more than 9990 MW and increasing demand for power, MAHAGENCO was looking for an ideal solution to help optimise fuel management and decentralise the current processes. The company chose SAP for its customised approach to suit the changing needs along with its proven domain expertise.

SAP, along with L&T InfoTech, will enable business process standardisation at MAHAGENCO across 14 different locations, including all power stations and offices in the state. The single integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) component SAP ERP Central Component will allow senior management rapid information access, minimised costs, and better resource utilisation and management to offer enhanced services and improve power efficiency for their customers.

Additionally, this integration will help MAHAGENCO maximise the value of its IT with Web-based technologies and a centralised data centre. The deployment will consolidate islands of information across the organisation, including financial accounting, human resources, payroll, material management, maintenance management and project management, to bring the information to a single concentrated platform.
