POWER SOLUTIONS: Voltex's Energy Efficient Solutions


Recent Western Cape Business News

AS the energy debate rages on, Voltex, a Bidvest subsidiary, has over the last seven years engineered solutions to assist individuals, companies and industry in achieving energy efficiency by applying effective methods to solve energy problems.

An energy project always begins with understanding what the real needs of the client are. This is achieved by measuring the current energy usage and auditing each facility. An audit will count every light fitting, air conditioner and other power consuming devices, according to the company.

Once what is currently being utilised has been identified and the energy consumption analysed, Voltex makes various recommendations as to what could be installed in the facility to provide maximum energy savings.

Solutions include: LED lamps, LED flood lights, LED light fittings, T5 fluorescent light fittings, motion detectors, daylight harvest sensors, dimming systems, skylight systems (utilising natural daylight), heat pumps (hot water), photovoltaic systems (generation of power from the sun), energy efficient air-conditioning, load controls, motor controls and others.

As a leading electrical and lighting distribution company in South Africa, Voltex says it has access to the latest most efficient and effective technologies available.

With extensive knowledge and expertise, Voltex is one of the longest standing Escos registered with Eskom, which allows Voltex to apply a variety of rebates that are offered by Eskom to individuals, companies or other entities within South Africa able to offer energy savings.

Voltex takes on the responsibility of applying to Eskom, implementing the technologies, measuring and verifying the project for the necessary time period stipulated by Eskom thereby smoothing the way forward for clients and ensuring the task is expedited without a hitch.

As the lead in the project application and maintenance, Voltex uses only SABS branded products of the highest quality with warranties that Voltex stands by. As part of the Bidvest group Voltex is structured to provide products and services the clients can depend on.

Following are a few projects that have been completed by Voltex. These, aggregated with various other projects, have rendered power savings of more than 18MW of energy:

Anglo Amandel-bult Mine - Energy Efficient Lighting - 2.577 MW saved.

Anglo Rusten-burg Mine - Energy Efficient Lighting - 4.025 MW saved.

Mercedes Benz SA - Energy Efficient Lighting - 0.49 MW saved.
