Industrial and commercial equipment specialist Advanced Industrial Technology, or Ai-Tec, has completed the installation of three 100 kVA generator sets for the South African Police Service (SAPS).
“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.
