Vert Energy to participate in the Powerex show at Electra Mining Africa 2016

Grant Robertson, MD of Vert Energy says, “as a service provider to the diesel, gas, wind and hydro generator set building industry, we believe this show will be the perfect forum for the company to display and demonstrate its solutions and support service to key players in the electric power generation and electro-mechanical sectors.”

Escalating energy requirements has placed power utilities under enormous pressure throughout the African continent, which is why companies are investing in alternative sources of electricity production.

Through an extensive range of quality branded EPG products and a highly skilled team of technical experts, Vert Energy plays a major role in providing dependable power to companies, even in the most remote regions.

“As part of our commitment to the genset manufacturing sector, for the swift supply of reliable components, the company has made a substantial investment in sourcing the finest components that produce electric energy from mechanical energy and which withstand harsh operating conditions,” says Robertson.

Vert Energy has been appointed distributors in sub-Saharan Africa for leading brands, which are supported by original spare parts and accessories.

These components include Leroy Somer alternators, a wide range of electric motors and drives, DEIF controllers, ASCO automatic transfer switches, API Covrad radiators and Avtron and Froment load banks, as well as customised control panels.

Vert Energy is the exclusive distributor of Leroy Somer LS alternators, the largest producer of alternators for gensets globally. These alternators are available from 5 kVA – 20 mVA from 48 vdc – 11 000 V.

On display will be the company’s new range of 2 pole alternators for portable power, as well as variable speed alternators, designed especially for the telecoms market.

Also on show will be DEIF power and control components, including the new Automatic Sustainable Controller (ASC). This is the first fully integrated control solution between renewable energy inverters and traditional diesel generators.

Vert Energy will also be showcasing the ASCO Series 230 automatic transfer switch, which consists of an intelligent controller and a modular load break switch that automatically transfers the load to the emergency power source when it detects under/over voltage, under/over frequency, or phase failure.

Avtron and Froment power test solutions are used effectively for the exercise and verification of diesel gensets, gas turbines, UPS systems, wind and solar, as well as agricultural tractors and self-propelled machinery.

Covrad’s turnkey radiator cooling packages feature high-performance cores and low horsepower fans, engineered into a compact envelope to deliver maximum cooling, in the smallest footprint.

A critical part of Vert Energy’s service is the availability throughout Africa of factory and OEM trained technicians who cope efficiently with any electro-mechanical breakdown situation or routine preventative maintenance procedures.
