Power Utilities

Globally, there is drive to upgrade and expand power utilities and infrastructure networks as demand for electricity grows. It is estimated that the world will spend some US$16.5-trillion on this expansion over the next 25 years. Africa's portion of this spend is estimated at 7% of this total a sum of US$1.15-billion dollars, or R7-trillion. South Africa is at present upgrading and expanding its infrastructure, with investment from government, Eskom and the municipal authorities. Eskom alone has a 5 year plan in terms of which it will have to spend over R846-billion on electricity infrastructure. Through its various subsidiaries, Powertech offers a wide range of products and services for the Power Infrastructure industry.
