Vexila is the first company in Africa to embrace and adopt composite insulator technology on Fuse Cutouts and continues to remain the only manufacturer of this product in South Africa, after more than 20 years of pioneering engineering. In this niche composite insulator market, the company offers standard creep (medium pollution) to high creep (high pollution) Fuse Cutout products rated from 11kV to 33kV electrical systems. Vexila is also only the second company internationally to get a composite Fuse Cutout technically approved into the Canadian market under stringent CSA technical requirements for harsh environmental conditions.
Vexila’s composite insulator technology extends to the rail sector where international projects have been successfully supplied such as the famous Euro-Tunnel Project (through SNCF). Vexila is the first and only South African developer and manufacturer of section and neutral section insulators supplied to the rail industry, contributing to seamless railway transportation of our mined minerals for the world. An extensive list of railway hardware supplied over the years has been successfully installed on projects such as Transnet’s 50kV AC upgrade to the Sishen – Saldanha iron ore line and the Gautrain project in South Africa.
On electrical transmission and distribution lines, Vexila also develops and supplies overhead line hardware string assemblies, disconnectors and vibration damping products that manage aeolian vibrations and sub span oscillations to safeguard electrical networks from premature mechanical failures.
The company’s growth ambitions, to support electrical and rail infrastructure needs of Africa off a solid South African base, will see it able to expand its highly skilled team, underpinned by a team of key engineers that have the expertise to design, plan, manufacture, manage and execute complex overhead line (OHL) and overhead traction equipment (OHTE) supply projects, providing total solutions to the highest international quality standards.
Vexila’s comprehensive in-house expertise and state-of-the-art technologies have ensured that the company is the market leader in the field of overhead electrical infrastructure products on the African continent. Vexila is the only company on the African continent that has successfully developed and manufactures composite insulators rated from 3kV up to 765kV.
Its extensive range of OEM products support electrical and rail infrastructure, bringing power to the people and industries of Africa, and the World.
We stand for innovative, safe transmission, energy connections that are easy to assemble and environmentally friendly; using state-of-the-art technology with solutions tailored to suit our customer’s needs.
