Barloworld Power (Hangar 4, Stand CW3) has been the Caterpillar dealer since 1927 for southern Africa. The company supplies diesel and gas generators, industrial, marine and diesel engines, as well as allied Cat components and pumps.

Barloworld Power provides quality generators for sale and commercial engine solutions to equipment manufacturers in southern Africa. The company also offers engines and generators for sale to the mining, construction, telecommunications, agricultural and manufacturing industries and to the municipal, commercial and residential property development sectors.

Barloworld Power supplies effective energy management solutions to the private and public sector, both locally and internationally.

“With the rising cost of electricity, organisations are looking for cost-effective power alternatives,” said the company.

“As Africans, we are privileged to live on a continent that receives sunlight all year round, making it the place to go solar! More and more organisations are starting to use the under-utilised real estate on their rooftops to install solar PV panels. As the price of solar installation continues to decrease, we expect to see an even steadier increase in solar installation across the continent.”
