A great deal of the design work on these systems has been pioneered by South African engineers and the country is significant manufacturer of metering units with a number of multi-nationals choosing to make their South African operations custodians of the technology for the group. Allied to this, South African developed the STS (Standards Transfer Specification), an interconnectivity standard that allows for multiple sourcing of meters and which has now been adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). South Africa has a base of about 4 million pre-payment meters and exports to over 60 countries.
Services that the electrical engineering sector can offer range from design, project management, contracting, manufacturing, operation, implementation, training and maintenance.
Their key area includes
- Energy management, monitoring & protection

- Green Building’ energy efficiency systems.
South African companies have significant local production facilities and several multinational companies have set up local centres of excellence for global production.

#WAPIC2015: The 12th Annual West African Power Industry Convention
The 12th Annual West African Power Industry Convention took place on the 24th November, 2015 at the prestigious Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos.
It was with great pleasure that the organizer welcomed participants and exhibitors to the annual event. The event is said to be the region’s largest strategic power and energy conference and exhibition. It is aimed at accelerating power supply and driving growth and prosperity within the region. According to the organizer,
This initiative would not be possible without the support from the Federal Ministry of Power, Nigeria and government organizations from across the region, along with our sponsors and esteemed advisory board who have supported us over the past 12 years.
The participants experience with the event will be invaluable and add further understanding of how to overcome the challenges faced by the West African power and energy sector today. We believe that WAPIC allows the industry to take another step in the direction; with forums dedicated to discussion of not only the strategic but also the practical issues surrounding financing power transformation, diversifying the energy mix, closing the metering gap and increasing the performance standards.
The event created a platform for participants to network with potential personalities, engage with and exhibitors and sponsors who are working on projects across the region. They was also display of hundreds of the most sophisticated products and exciting new technologies from local and global partners.
This year’s edition of Annual West African Power Industry Convention and award was a sold out success, so be sure to book your seat for 2016 edition. The organizers look forward to welcoming you to African Utility Week in May 2016 and the East African Power Industry Convention in September 2016.
