‘Synergy Is Power’ says Cummins communications session in São Paulo
Cummins Power Systems Brazil has hosted an All Employees’ Meeting aimed at bringing people and teams closer together.
Power Systems Brazil recently held an All Employees’ Meeting to encourage integration in all senses – integration of people, of products and technologies, and of businesses. Cummins Latin America leader José Samperio led the event, joined by Alex Savelli, Executive Director of Power Generation, and Jorge Machuca, then Leader of Power Generation Mexico and Central America.
‘Synergy is Power’ was the theme of the session, attended by around 90 employees in Guarulhos, São Paulo in late May. The importance of synergy in achieving goals was discussed, and special reference made to the development of Cummins Latin America’s Goal Tree 2018 initiatives. Further topics covered, in a wide-ranging agenda of synergy issues, included: the power of women, new teams, financial results and ISO audit.
Integration and synergy between teams was highlighted by use of a photo totem, where people could take pictures of themselves together, print them, and then have them displayed. Before the closing lunch, presentations were made of new employees, new parents, new graduates, changes of areas and birthdays of the month. At the very end of the session, the Power Systems Agradece Committee thanked the supply chain team for their efforts with suppliers.
The event was a good opportunity to update everyone with the latest achievements of Cummins in the region. These include the recent completion of a nearby cogeneration project which Cummins Power Systems, in partnership with Cummins Sales and Services Distributor (CVSMG), has carried out for Rhodia Brasil, a company of the Solvay Group.
Three Cummins C1100 N6C gas generator sets have been successfully delivered and installed at the Solvay Group’s Santo André plant in the São Paulo metropolitan region. The plant can now produce 3 MW of electric power, 2.8 tons of steam and an average volume of 30 cubic meters of water per minute, at a temperature of 90º C.
Cummins successfully dealt with the challenges of the project and met the customers’ schedule. “The project was started in December 2017 and we were able to complete the delivery of the generator sets on May 3rd, 2018. This project will allow our client to have a large savings in their energy matrix,” commented Carlos Alberto Silame, PD&I Supervisor for Power Systems.
