Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy describes a collection of energy technologies i.e. solar, wind, geothermal derived from sources that are never-ending and can be replenished time after time. Most countries across the world heavily depend on fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) as sources of energy to power their economies.

 

Fossil fuels are non-renewable forms of energy, meaning, they utilize limited resources that will ultimately deplete, hence, driving up overall energy costs. These very countries have responded to the threat by stepping up campaigns to embrace renewable forms of energy like solar and wind.

This is why the question can only be begged: what are the real benefits of using renewable energy? While there are certainly advantages and disadvantages to switching to renewable energy, it is quite arguable that the benefits of using such sources outweigh the shortcomings of it, especially in the future.

Established

 

Recognized for learning and development initiative for a community based project.  20 students had to chose a career pathway. Understanding the role we play and how we can contribute to saving our own energy footprint these 20 students are now in tertiary education for the study of renewable energy. They want to graduate and become passionate installers of renewable energy at their very own homes and farms.

Why renewable energy?

Our Carbon Footprint

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use and end-of-life of a product or service. It includes carbon dioxide — the gas most commonly emitted by humans — and others, including methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere, causing global warming. Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing and food. You can start the process by calculating your carbon footprint. You will need to know the following: Approximately how many km’s you travel by car, bus, train, taxi and plane. The energy usage in your home. How much you spend shopping and the composition of your diet. No matter how you scored there are some things that could help you lessen your personal environmental impact.

Latest News about our Industry

Repair work completed on a Rubber Tyre Gantry Crane.

Recently, a crane operating at the Durban Ports/Harbour Container Terminal One broke a critical component that anchors a wire rope cable to the crane. The wire rope is attached to a spreader that lifts containers of the vessel/Hauler and/or stack.  Not only was the cable anchor completely snapped from its location but also the anchor pins were corroded and damaged. Using correct SOP’s various other cranes together with skilled labour, the trim carriage was removed, refurbished and replaced in under a week. Ops was back and the crane went on to load on average of 250 containers a day.

Generator Acoustics

Rubber Tyre Gantry Portside Equipment sound proofing was done to generators at the Durban Ports due to high noise levels measuring 112dbs. After installation, we achieved 82dbs making it a much more quieter environment to work in. The crane operator is positioned high above the 4 to 5 stack containers making operations view and handling at ease. Staging trucks and haulers come into travel so that the can lift of the container or stack the container onto. RTG’s are mobile machine and use a 700kva generator to power up the traction and material handling. Generators that are loud can be hazardous to the operations with truck drivers move under the crane hence acoustics was applied to the unit.

Emergency Standby Generator

Repairs was completed to an E.S.P that never ran successfully without tripping during its life time. O.E.M parts were used to restore the unit were fitted by skilled Techs.  This unit supplies the main Wearhouse departments IT structure, offices, operating system, mobile machine chargers and conveyers with Emergency Power. This unit was put to its test recently when a cable was damaged by construction. Technicians worked around the clock to establish power. This genset was fueled to capacity and ran throughout the power outage.  Customer was happy to complete the rest of units and sign a full S.L.A. We have an enquiry to supply, install and commission a new site for 8 more units.

Local Manufacturing

With our growing database of customers enquiring on custom made generators, we have affiliated ourselves with an extremely, well known and dedicated supplier that produces a locally build generator. Not only is the product built by South African hands, it creates much locally materials, technical understanding and development as well.  We have secured certification to sell, install, commission for major OEM (Cummins, Scania, Volvo and Perkins) through the affiliation and to assess warrantable claims. Together with the sale is a 1 year service level agreement to monitor and maintain the units. We have now sold 8 units that will be built by our affiliation by year end 2020.

Tools Investment

Whilst we pride ourselves in what we do and how we do it, capital expense of R500 000 was granted for special service tools for our vehicles and technicians. Using the correct tooling with skill workmanship, we are able to produce accurate results to correctly apply the most economic and suitable generator, backup and renewable energy systems. Tooling such as this Power Analyzer, Thermal Imaging Guns,  Heat monitors, Mega testers, Clamp Meters, Power Hydraulic Crimpers, Snap On Spanners and Rackets Sets and special service vehicles were deemed as critical capital expense and approve for outright buy.

Joint Venture

We have entered into a JV to effectively produce a service to Ports material handling equipment. The growing number of SLA’s on generators encourages us for bigger workplace and more technicians. Our JV partner is in the business of providing various services including project management on local assembly and commissioning of cranes. It complies 100% to South African Black Economic Empowerment standards (BEE). There has also been trade between U.K companies and our partner for used port equipment. The Joint Venture shall be considered a joint venture between the parties in Port Harbour RTG Equipment, Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Engines and Power Generators.
