HIMOINSA has signed an agreement with Matforce Mali to improve the delivery times in the country and enable the supply of spare parts and qualified technical assistance 24/7.
Mali is a country in permanent need of power supply. This does not only refer to the energy needs of its traditional coal mining industry, but those required by the newly found strength of its telecommunications, construction, housing and business activities, which are now showing continuous growth. Moreover, the emergency power supply becomes especially critical during the spring and autumn. The high temperatures during these months drive up demand and cause frequent power cuts in the grid.
Matforce, a leading company in the energy industry, opened its subsidiary in Mali in 2009 and has ample experience of more than 30 years in the power generation sector. According to Frederic Maguer, HIMOINSA Regional Sales Manager, the new distribution agreement with HIMOINSA will, "strengthen the position of both companies in the country and guarantee a high-quality product, as well as fast, highly qualified service to our customers".
"We chose HIMOINSA mainly for the quality of its generator sets, its innovative technology and its wide range", states Ndakhte Mboup, Director of Matforce Mali. "The genset design, the good value for money and the technical support they offer as a manufacturer, have also weighed on our choice".
The first fleet of generator sets with a capacity between 13 and 120 kVA and intended for business and housing applications have already been delivered. In addition, in recent weeks nearly twenty technicians from the new HIMOINSA distributor in Mali have received on site specialised training in the use, maintenance and repair of all their equipment. This training and the spare parts local stock guarantee a high quality service to the clients.
