“Because of increasing electricity outages in Mpumulanga and Limpopo, it was necessary to install a reliable backup system at the Ohrigstad, Malamulele and Tshamatumbu police stations to ensure daily activities continue in the event of a power failure,” says Ai-Tec business development director Arnold Retief.
“In response to growing demand in South Africa for dependable standby power, Ai-Tec’s manufacturing and supply facility has made a substantial investment in the latest energy production technology and has implemented the highest inter- national manufacturing standards.Important Feature
“An important feature of Ai-Tec’s generators is the specially designed acoustic enclosure that reduces sound to less than 70 dB at a distance of 7 m from the unit while running at full load.”
These diesel-driven generators, manufactured from mild steel, are fitted with an automatic transfer switch and a manual bypass switch. For absolute reliability and efficiency, only high-quality branded components are used, including Lovol Perkins engines and Engga alternators.
Ai-Tec’s range of generators, ranging from 5 kVA to 2 500 kVA, are designed and built to exact specifications.
Commissioning of these generators is carried out by Ai-Tec, in conjunction with specific building requirements. Each unit is stringently tested during the commissioning process.
Ai-Tec offers a national support service to ensure the efficient operation and maintenance of power plants installed throughout Southern Africa.
