HIMOINSA, the international company that designs, manufactures and
distributes electricity generation equipment, intends opening a subsidiary in
Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in the fourth quarter of this year. The head
office of the new subsidiary will be located in Port Elizabeth, supported by
nationwide sales and service coverage across South Africa. The subsidiary will
also support the wider SADC region, serving customers in the nearby countries
of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho and Swaziland.
South Africa is undoubtedly one of Africa’s leading importers of generator sets. According to sources, South
Africa imported $155M of generator sets in 2015, thereby becoming the African
country with the greatest demand in the electricity generation market, followed
by Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria and Libya.
HIMOINSA has a successful track record of almost 35 years and has been
operating in Africa since the 1990s, with nearly twenty distributors all over
the continent. In Angola, the company has an existing subsidiary and 25MW power
plant in Angola supporting the local utility, which has been operating
successfully since 2013. HIMOINSA has identified Africa as an exciting market
with excellent potential for growth, where the customer requirements are well
suited to the HIMOINSA product range and superior service.
A local management team has already been identified for the Southern
Africa subsidiary, providing the business with local employees and vast
experience of the power generation business in the region. This management team
are excited by the opportunity, believing that the quality and durability of
Himoinsa equipment, combined with local engineering support and efficient
service intervals is ideal for the African market.
“Our objective is to be close to the market and to bring the needs of the
local market to our factory in Europe. That is how we guarantee our customers a
made-to-measure product and rapid service”, states Guillermo Elum, Sales &
Marketing Director for HIMOINSA in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
“We want to share our technical know-how with our clients in South
Africa and we want to offer them a comprehensive support right from the outset and
through to the end of each project”, he adds.
HIMOINSA has been part of the Yanmar Group since 2015. Yanmar is one of
the world's leading engine manufacturers; its commercial alliance with HIMOINSA
has made it possible to combine the former's Japanese engineering expertise
with the latter's consolidated experience in the manufacture of generator sets.
HIMOINSA's sectors and reference projects in South Africa
The company has already supplied hundreds of units in the South African market, for mining, construction, agricultural and telecommunication projects. Important mobile telephone companies use HIMOINSA's generator sets; they can now include a special kit that allows for longer maintenance intervals up to 1000 hours. Among other improvements, the kit includes a larger tank, which supplies extra oil to the engine. While fuel and oil consumption remain the same, the cost of filters is significantly reduced, and so is the downtime, when the equipment is out of operation for maintenance. For this reason, the kit guarantees less waste oil and, therefore, a reduced environmental impact. Also, some generator sets models can incorporate a fuel tank of 1.000L, 10 times bigger than what it is offered as standard, which translates into less trips to the site for refueling operations. Considering that the genset works 8 hours a day, this new feature guarantees up to 70 days of running time.
HIMOINSA offers diesel and gas generator sets, control panels and paralleling systems for standby emergency power, prime power and peak power to the international market. It also develops hybrid power gensets for the telecom sector and manufactures lighting towers for the rental and construction markets.
Being a vertical manufacturer is HIMOINSA’s main strength, as the company has the capability of producing all components of the genset: alternators, engines, canopies, control panels, automatic transfer switches and paralleling systems.
