It was a proud moment for FEA’s ‘Inspiration’ team of Labasa as they won the Gold medal prize of $1000 during the In House Quality Circles  convension last Friday. The team came up with a solution which complements the vision of the board members of FEA.

Manager, Saiyad Shameel said: “Our project presentation is about energy efficiency and in order to achieve the authority’s vision that is energising our nation, we need to practise energy efficiency.

“Our objective was to correct the power factor on customers side so that they are not charged excess penalty.” he said.

“Through the sucess of this project we can defer the need for new infrustructure such as transmition lines, substations, transformer up-grades reduce line loss and improve efficiency of generation on FEA’s side.”

The team believes their project will not only benefit FEA but will also be a winning situation for customers as well which coincides with one of their values which is customer focus.



Team Inspiration members noted their expectations weren’t as much coming from the North to compete with the other teams but they put a lot of time and effort into their work and came out the best.

Team leader, Sheik Saheb mentioned, from their achievement, they have two more weeks to prepare for the National Quality Circle Competition and will have to step up their game if they want to win the grand finale.

Mr Saheb said: “This is our first time competing and we would like to thank our families for their endless support especially our wives for understanding the sacrificed time we took to prepare for this competition.

Team Inspiration will be merging with runners up Rhizome, from the West to represent FEA for the National Qualty Circle Competition on October 8.
