Power management company Eaton has launched its first experience centre in South Africa.
The centre is specifically designed to showcase Eaton’s innovations and demonstrate how they benefit customers in key segments including commercial construction, renewable energy, data centres, oil and gas, mining, utilities. It also exhibits Eaton’s products and solutions for customers operating in mobile and industrial hydraulics applications as well as in the automotive industry.
Eaton also launched its Hybrid Inverter, an energy saving and backup power system that allows for continued power during load shedding. It runs on energy from the sun and can power small to medium enterprises among others, switching between main power, solar power as well as battery power – depending on availability.
“There is no better time to launch the Hybrid Inverter as the demand for uninterrupted and affordable power continues to grow at an alarming rate,” says Shane Kilfoil, MD of Eaton, Africa. “This solution is advantageous to all sectors providing secure power and, in turn, up time in productivity.
“A need was identified to provide an alternative for the African market when it comes to continuously running power and I encourage business to take the time to come to the experience centre to view this innovative solution which promises nothing but reliability, safety and cost efficiency and will be available to customers soon.”
Craig de Vasconcellos, regional sales manager for the hydraulics division at Eaton, sub-Saharan Africa, adds: “Eaton’s unparalleled dedication to leadership in mobile and industrial applications has made us one of Africa’s preferred suppliers of hydraulic solutions and we are excited to have our latest innovations demonstrated at the experience centre.”
