DTEK Goes Live on Allegro 8
Significant Gains in Electricity Markets Prompts Ukraine’s Largest Integrated Energy Company to Expand its Use of Allegro for Commodity Trading and Risk Management
LONDON, August 4, 2014, Allegro Development Corporation, a leading provider of commodity value chain risk management (CVCRM) software, announced today the successful implementation and deployment of Allegro 8 software solutions at DTEK for real time position management of natural gas trading.
DTEK, the Ukraine’s largest privately owned and integrated energy company, selected Allegro in 2012 to provide a comprehensive energy trading and risk management system for their expanding power and coal trading operations. The first phase of DTEK’s deployment went live in late 2012 and included counterparty, contract and trade management for power operations, power back office (invoicing, credit risk management and document templates), with coal trading front and back office as a second phase launched in 2013.
In 2014, DTEK continued to expand its product footprint within the Allegro 8 platform, with the decision to implement the solution across its natural gas business. DTEK is now live on Allegro 8 for natural gas scheduling, storage management and actualization.
“As DTEK continues to expand its complex positions within commodity markets, Allegro has become the system of record for managing trading and risk across our entire energy portfolio,” said John Woodham, DTEK’s Deputy Commercial Director. “As part of the company wide effort for the implementation of the international standards and practices, Allegro becomes yet another key milestone in this strategic undertaking.”
Leveraging Allegro allows DTEK the ability to:
- Practice real-time position reporting
- Reduce operational risk through streamlined workflows and approval processes
- Scale their business to support ongoing growth in trading volume and complexity
