Solar Installations

Solar systems need to be properly installed, meeting required specifications and regulations to deliver optimum results and be safe. Improper installations could lead to damages and injuries and at the same time, do not deliver the required performance. Importantly, solar installations are subject to applicable SANS (South African National Standards)

Mining

Rentech’s expertise in the Mining industry dates back to 1966, when its parent company, then known as Willard Africa, started the first local manufacturing of lead-acid batteries for industrial applications in South Africa. These batteries were used to power mining cap lamps, and in the 1980s the company initiated the

Materials Handling Equipment

Forklifts, pallet trucks, order pickers, stackers, reach trucks and raised platforms are important materials handling equipment in the logistics and warehouse management value chain. Scrubbers and sweepers used in the cleaning of warehouse spaces fall under this category. A recent market research study (2019) showed that over 80% of all

Locomotive

Rentech is able to assist with locomotive battery solutions. The first industrial batteries in South Africa were imported from Oldham Batteries in the United Kingdom in the early 1960s, specifically for the use in battery-powered miners’ cap lamps. With the demand for industrial batteries rapidly increasing, Willard Africa started the

Solar Inverters

A typical solar system consists of an inverter, batteries, battery charger, solar panels, solar charge controller (SCC) and the cables and protection equipment. Solar Inverters use power electronics technology to convert Direct Current (DC) energy from batteries or photo-voltaic (PV) panels (the sun’s energy) into Alternating Current (AC) energy to

Back-up Power

With load shedding continuing to be a reality in the foreseeable future, the demand for back-up power solutions is increasing rapidly. Back-up power solutions that can be connected to the electricity grid are ideal. In this scenario, when power from the National Electricity Supplier is available, batteries are charged and

Alarm & Security

Back-up batteries are critical components of modern alarm and security systems. These are typically deep-cycle 12V batteries that can power a security system for a period, depending on the number of devices that are linked to the battery. The battery starts working when there is a power outage. Frequent power
