At the beginning of 2006 Schuberg Philis welcomed Eneco Energy Trade as a new customer. EnecoEnergy Trade, the trading company of EnecoEnergie Holding, has contracted out all mission critical applications and the underlying IT infrastructure to Schuberg Philis. EnecoEnergy Trade, also named EET, manages the energy portfolio of EnecoEnergie, one of the three largest energy companies in the Netherlands in terms of turnover and market share.
Altogether, EnecoEnergie supplies over two million business and private customers with gas, heat and electricity achieving a turnover exceeding 4.8 billion euros. EnecoEnergy Trade is responsible for the purchase and trade of electricity, gas, CO2 emission rights as well as optimizing and controlling electricity producing plants in Northern and Western Europe on behalf of EnecoEnergie.
To EET, trading and controlling applications as well as their underlying IT infrastructure are of vital importance. Moreover, these systems need to be rapidly adjusted, due to developments in the energy market – particularly dynamic since its liberalization. Therefore, EET searched for an outsourcing partner able to combine the highest possible availability, service level and professional risk management with flexibility and innovation.
After a thorough tender examination process under the supervision of Morgan Chambers, which included all large outsourcing companies, EET selected Schuberg Philis as their outsourcing partner. Both partners signed an outsourcing contract to a value exceeding 15 million euros over a five year term.
Guido Dubbeld, Director of EnecoEnergy Trade: “Schuberg Philis is a key player in our service chain. Since we operate in both a highly volatile and regulated energy market we only work with partners in our service chain who truly understand working together, service and top quality. Hence, only via co-creation we remain able to keep track of all the different developments in our market and meet the highest quality level. Moreover, Schuberg Philis is very progressive in the field of risk management, and has built a strong position with regard to the ‘auditability’ of their services.”
