Powerway attendance at South Africa Power & Electricity Exhibition bears fruit

Powerway shared its new pre-assembled design concepts with customers, making it a highly successful and fruitful event

Powerway Renewable Energy participated for the first time in the South Africa Power & Electricity Exhibition held in Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, on March 27 and 28. It was an opportunity for the company to show off its PowerScrew and Power Tracker systems, which are made in association with Green Sources Technology, the biggest and most experienced tracking system provider in Asia.


In addition, Powerway shared its new pre-assembled design concepts with customers, making it a highly successful and fruitful event. Our company was not only warmly received by existing customers, but our representatives made important contacts with many new and outstanding EPC companies such as Siemens, Schneider, Tenesol, First Solar, SunEdison etc.

The world is rapidly learning the Ground Screw system is available for all types of soil conditions. Customers understand its strength lies in low production costs, fast installation, and no long waiting times for drying, since no concrete foundation is needed. Our product is ecologically friendly because it does not damage the environment; hence Ground Screw is the ideal solution for any South African PV Plant.

Regarding the Solar Tracker, attendees at the conference learned that it is ideally suited to South Africa because of the long hours of daylight and sunshine, which can help improve power efficiency by 30%. All this sheds a positive light on the PV Industry. As far as pre-assembly is concerned, this advancement can save 50% of installation time, which lowers costs by an equally high percentage.

Working in conjunction with the South African government's BBBEE program, Powerway is setting up a manufacturing base and training center in Kimberly and De Aar, opening in early June. Powerway will be the first BBBEE-compliant solar farm builder in South Africa.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
