IMS-CAPE, a division of Zest Electric Motors, is well known for the supply of quality generator sets. It’s remaining on course for continued growth, the company says.

It is the quality of product, expertise and service excellence that remains non negotiable and with this, satisfying the customers specific needs remains our primary focus”.

All team members remain multi-skilled where it be architects, consultants, electrical contractor or small end user, we remain well equipped to meet all aspects of selection, design, manufacture which is complemented in a professional installation through to commissioning”, says Bruce McCracken, sales manager of IMS-Cape.

Recent contracts include more than 45MW of diesel powered generator sets where turnkey projects have been successfully completed. These included civil, noise attenuation and bulk fuel consideration. Medium voltage (11kV) switchboards with reticulation were part of the installation of the automatic synchronizing and load sharing (with mains utility) generator sets.

All aspects of design and manufacture is done ‘in house’ to customers specification. “This is all encompassing from design to installation. A stringent quality control system is employed during manufacture which is emulated during commissioning to ensure a reliable standby generator set installation. A unique advantage of being a generator set assembler is that we supply most of the quality well known name brands of diesel engines complimented with quality alternators such as WEG, Merrili Mottori, Stamford and Leroy Somer”, according to McCracken.

Typically, units range from 20kVA to 3 500kVA with voltages to suit the client’s needs where multiple sets for parallel operation can be employed to customers requirements.

After market support is not an optional extra – periodic service is viewed as essential to the proper performance of the standby installation where our service support team are positioned on a 24/7 call out basis”.

IMS–Cape has supplied generator sets to a varied mix of markets which include the finance industry, shopping malls and complexes, the food and beverage industry, military, engineering, mining and many more market segments.

Included in its current work in progress is the manufacture of 4 off, canopy enclosed trailer mounted generator sets each rated at 3.3MVA,11kV.

IMS–Cape is now better equipped to supply and support the generator set industry given that our new modern premises have been designed specifically for the assembly of generator sets and is very functional which includes line assembly, a fully acoustic test cell, resistive load bank up to
2 000kW, cleaning bay and fabrication workshop”, says McCracken.
