Crestchic, an international leader in load testing solutions, is attending the POWER-GEN Africa exhibtion at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, South Africa, on 17-19 March 2014 for the first time.
As part of the POWER-GEN family of events, POWER-GEN Africa will bring together power engineering planning and technology experts to cover the whole process from fuel supply, through to power generation across the grid and down to the customer. It will offer an opportunity for delegates to learn, network and engage with global power industry professionals and share in the new frontier of development for Africa’s energy future.
Paul Brickman, sales and marketing manager at Crestchic, explained: "This event in Cape Town provides Crestchic with the opportunity to capitalise on the increase in demand for loadbank testing systems as markets expand in this region of the world. This is especially evident in the areas of onshore and offshore, and independent power. Crestchic currently has two high-profile contracts with Wartsila – the global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions for the marine and energy markets – in Gambon and West Africa.
"We are extremely excited to introduce our load testing solutions to the delegates at POWER-GEN Africa. For the first time, we are able to offer a range of standardised, mid-power level DC loadbanks for installation and testing for customers in the offshore, UPS and battery manufacture industries."
Crestchic will also be unveiling a new brand vision for the company. The move comes after the company welcomed its Asia-Pacific and Middle East equivalents into the brand family following parent company Northbridge Industrial Services plc’s investment into Crestchic.
Paul added: "It is an exciting year for Crestchic, with significant investments being made in the business globally, to extend our product and service offering in local markets. The new look and feel reflects the overall strategy to re-unify and grow the Crestchic brand and our new website showcases our extensive portfolio and reach."
