Mantrac Ghana Limited, the sole authorized dealer of Caterpillar (CAT) products in Ghana has organized a power solution seminar in Accra to update its customers and introduced them to new technologies to improve efficiency of its products and also address their concerns.
The one-day seminar saw customers drawn from various sectors such as Mining, Banking, telecommunication, public service and among other areas.
The Managing Director (MD) of Mantrac Ghana, Mr. Emad Adeeb, in a speech read on his behalf said the company has over the decades, supplied and supported major power plants and projects with its reliable CAT-branded diesel power generating sets with a customized after sales support to reduce down times in power supply.
“This year is no exception as we have supplied various sets from 12.5kva up to bigger projects like the 5.8 MW generator installed recently for Persus Mining. Our supplies now cuts across from residential up to small, medium and large organizations helping business run non-stop thereby improving production and economic growth,” said the MD.
Mr Adeeb said the company in collaboration with Stanbic Bank provides customized payment options of any size of diesel powered generator that a customer may require. This eases the burdens of having to make outright payment before one owns the legendary CAT diesel powered generator.
Speaking on the introduction of the new products, the Head of Marketing & Strategic Planning at Mantrac Ghana Mr. Daniel Pabby mentioned that Mantrac is stepping up its leadership in power generation and currently planning to roll out Mantrac DC generators. “This is the best in class of fuel efficient solution. This solution saves fuel, oil and reduces wear and tear with fewer emissions to the environment compared with fixed speed AC gensets,” he added.
He stressed that this solution overcomes excessive fuel consumption at lower loads by running at most fuel efficient speed. Key advantages specific to telecommunication application is its ability to save 30-50% on fuel, 30% decrease in size of alternator and reduction in Capex life cycle as well as maintenance cost.
