14 September 2016

Having reliable and cost-effective electric power at all times seems like a no-brainer. Generator Logic in Johannesburg, South Africa (Stand OS4, outside Hangar 3) is an innovative manufacturer of custom-built generators to provide power solutions to a wide variety of industries worldwide.

A recent solution from the company is the Hybrid generator incorporating the AC generator, rectifier system and battery bank in a single tamper-resistant ‘cube’, with an optional add-on of solar banks. The Hybrid HPC20-600 alternating current (AC) generator is configurable from 10kVA up to 60kVA, with the battery compartment holding up to seven strings of batteries. The distribution board can be specified for a three-tenant distribution board for co-shared sites. Tests conducted with the Hybrid in Tanzania showed cost savings over the lifespan of the batteries amounting to almost US$110,000.

Generator Logic has more than 10 years’ experience in power solutions aimed at the specific requirements of a client’s industry, built according to the often harsh environments in which these industries operate in Africa.
