DublinAnd the June 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – “The generator and transformer industry in South Africa 2022 report added to Show.

This report focuses on the manufacturing and supply of generators and transformers and includes comprehensive information on the state of the sector, energy mix, imports, localization and influencing factors including power generation, demand, capacity and input costs.

There are profiles of 41 companies including major players such as ABB, Actom, generator step-up transformer manufacturer SGB-Smith Power Matla and Revive Electrical Transformers, which supplied many independent renewable energy producers and generator suppliers such as Cummins.

The generators and transformers industry in South Africa

Manufacturing sales of electric motors, generators, and transformers grew marginally in 2021, but were trending downward between 2016 and 2021. Transformer and generator imports have outpaced exports over the past two decades. While the demand for diesel generators has generally grown in parallel with the load separation, imports of portable generators fell sharply in 2021, even with peak loads.

Transformer deployment has been hampered by low capital spending by Eskom, which source the majority of transformers in the country. The industry can expect some increase given the country’s plans to add new power generation to the grid.

Embedded generation

The increase in combined generation, where industry, mines, and municipalities produce their own power, presents both an opportunity and a threat to manufacturers of generators and transformers. Increased generation and combined renewable energy projects are likely to hamper demand for diesel generators, but provide opportunities for manufacturers and importers to produce and supply generators and transformers for renewable energy and other off-grid projects. Some generator manufacturers are considering making generators powered by renewable energy.

the demand

The largest demand for generators comes from the construction sector, which has been underperforming since 2018. The ongoing complete shutdown of the events industry, which uses short-term generator rentals, during the pandemic has lowered demand, but that could rise. with the lifting of restrictions. South Africa The electricity crisis continues to drive demand.
