Voltex received a record number of visitors on its stand at African Utility Week held at the CTICC from 12 to 14 May 2015. Positioned as the global meeting place, conference and trade exhibition for African power and utilities, this year’s event attracted over 6000 attendees made up of utility heads, the continent’s leading renewable energy project managers, investors, technology providers and international professionals. Eighty-two percent of the attendees were from Africa with the balance coming from Europe, Asia and the USA.
The Voltex exhibit offered visitors interactive product displays of MV/LV Solutions - Distribution Board, Weidmuller enclosures, LSis circuit breakers, the Elspec Activar and a 25kVA generator as well as energy efficient solar lighting products. Not surprisingly, the 25kVA generator and Activar were the talking points on the stand. Shawn Roets, Western Cape Regional Manager, stated “with the current instability in power, businesses have no choice but to look for reliable standby power solutions in order to keep their operations going. The 25kVA generator therefore attracted keen interest from prospective buyers, particularly in the agricultural and commercial sectors”.
Another trend evident at this year’s exhibition was the increased interest in alternative energy such as solar and wind generated power solutions as well as power-metering. “This highlights, that aside from the immediate demand for reliable energy in South Africa, there is considerable concern about the ever increasing cost of energy and the long-term sustainability thereof”, said Shawn Roets.
As a market leader, Voltex is well positioned to drive the development of technologies that achieve energy-efficiency and sustainable energy solutions. With a footprint in Africa, Voltex can contribute positively to the adoption of sustainable and environmentally-friendly energy-solutions and technologies.
