S.Africa: local muni to install standby backup generator

Deadline date: 08 January 2019

In South Africa, the Ndwedwe Local Municipality invited bidders to supply and install a standby backup generator.

Charlie Farrow of Welland Power Generators commented: “Tenders such as this show even in a world where news of renewable energy is forefront, there is still little alternative to using a diesel generator for standby use. The compact, cost-effective nature of the solution, combined with the availability of fuel and ease of storage allows a diesel generator to be online quickly and run for the duration of the power outage.”

Farrow added: “In all cases, you need something that is capable of generating power, not just storing it. Top generator brands have an important role to play and will continue to do so for many years to come.”

It was estimated that bidders would have a CIDB contractor grading of 3EP.
