The company Lesedi Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) participated in the Cape Town Enlit Africa event, focusing on clean air technologies for the mining and energy industries.
On the second day of the conference, Leon van Wyk presented Lesifi’s Chief Project Officer to Hanif Suchwani, Fuel Tech Corporation’s Vice President of International Operations and Piers de Havilland, EWA’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, Fuel Tech, USA.
ESP (Electrostatic Precipitator) was designed to improve the performance of dual-emission gas conditioning technology and introduced several case studies of innovative Air Pollution Control (APC). The clean energy solutions offered by Fuel Tech can be adapted to different fuels and are suitable for large corporations such as Eskom, Sasol and the mining industry, with guaranteed performance results.
The partnership between Lesedi and Fuel Tech Corporation brings more than 30 years of experience to Elektrostatic Precipitator (ESP) in Africa. Both parties have turnkey experience in their respective markets. Lesedi and Fuel Tech can offer dual fuels that can be adapted to existing ESP applications to reduce emissions under new regulations and the National Environmental Management Act.
The partnership between Lesedi and Fuel Tech combines their extensive experience in a variety of fuels with a variety of applications, the ability to increase or decrease the application, a strong market presence and a well-established supply chain.
Leon van Wyk said Lesedi supplies “the best” engineering products from around the world. “We are technology agnostic and build strategic relationships to provide our customers with the best technical solutions. This increases local reach for foreign entities and reduces the risk of participation for international OEMs, as we understand the local market landscape and have a deep technical understanding of the systems in which we participate. ”
“Fuel Tech is excited to partner with Lesedi in the South African marketplace. a well-established supply chain, ”said Hanif Suchwani, Fuel Tech Corporation’s Vice President of International Operations.
Piers de Havilland of Fuel Tech added, “This technology keeps coal generation up to date with current emissions requirements. We can’t switch to renewable energy technologies and gases overnight, but it’s gaining time to travel through a fair energy transition. ”
At a cocktail party at Lesedi’s showcase, Shane Pereira (Lesedi’s Business Development Director) added that few people understand the complexity of the technologies that Lesedi can offer to its partners and that Lesedi is one of the few EPC companies in South Africa for decades. an expert in all industrial sectors.
