POWER SUPPLY: Broadcrown Leads In Upgrade Market


Recent Western Cape Business News

EARLIER this year, Freddy Hirsch Group, one of the leading spice manufacturers in South Africa needed to upgrade their Eskom line to 1mW.

CCI Technologies, under the guidance of Paul Riley were asked to quote for the reticulation as well as to upgrade their existing 500kVA standby industrial generator set to 1mVA.

Knowing the build quality and reliability of the Broadcrown range, as well as the standard of their sub-contractors works, the choice was easy.”

On top of this, given Broadcrown’s stock holdings, they were able to supply them with a BCC 1010P-50 (a 1000kVA prime set using the trusted Cummins QST 30 G4 engine and a Stamford Newage alternator) immediately,” says Mike Haward, engineer at Freddy Hirsch.

Initial commission was completed early in June without a hitch and final commissioning was completed by mid-June 2011. This included a complete new distribution board.

In another upgrade, Voltcom Reticulation was requested to upgrade Home Choice’s back up power supply a 275kVA standby power generator set, supplied by Broadcrown was chosen with quality and attention to detail being the motivating factor.

Emile Kruger, managing director of Voltcom, having seen the build quality of the Broadcrown sets, says he had no hesitation in supplying Home Choice with a BCJD 275-50 (a 250kVA prime set using the 8.1 litre, 6081 HF001 John Deere engine together with the Newage Stamford UCDI 274K alternator). With a custom built 3CR12 sound attenuated weatherproof canopy, the set was delivered to site in July.

Quality is the hallmark that stands out with Broadcrown, from their deep sea controllers (standard on all sets) to the neatness of their wiring, as well as their sound attenuated weatherproof canopies,” says Kruger.

Broadcrown is a leading global manufacturer of high quality generator sets and a provider of complete power generation systems.

It was one of the first power generation companies to be approved to ISO 9001 standards.

Superior designs use high quality components throughout: not just in the generators sets but also the base frames, canopies, containers and control panels.

The full product range of single units extends from 6kVA to 3.3mVA.

All units can be combined to meet requirements of larger projects for a broad range of applications delivering standby, prime or continuous power.

All Broadcrown units are fully works tested in the UK before exported and arrive in South Africa, ready to start working immediately.

All Broadcrown units come complete with factory test certificates as well as parts manuals and all diagrams.

Broadcrown units are supplied with first fill of all as well as coolant as standard.
