Lending a helping hand (15/10/2014)
Clean C, an NPO which organises a number of community upliftment projects for underprivileged people, recently challenged EES Africa (Pty) Ltd to a beach clean-up. EES, management, engineering and auditing services company, took up this challenge, and last week, under the guidance of Clean C, descended upon the Kalk Bay beach situated next to the harbour. After some very productive and worthwhile time spent there cleaning up litter, the beach looked shiny, fresh and clean! EES challenges other companies to do the same at beaches not far from where they are located in order to achieve sustainability which is part of the EES business approach.
Smart grid implementation barriers in SA (26/09/2014)
A smart grid facilitates the efficient, intelligent use of available energy and can achieve significant energy savings. This is of tremendous benefit to South Africa which is experiencing a severe energy crisis. However, there are certain barriers to implementing a smart grid in the country.
“A smart grid can be defined as an evolved grid system which has been expanded through the addition of intelligence that manages electricity demand in a sustainable, reliable and economic manner,” explains Jaco Cronje, Operations Director for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd (www.eeslive.com).
“The smart grid allows the integration of all types of power generation, including renewables. Smart grids are an integral part of smart cities.”
IT in Africa’s construction industry (31/08/2014)
An integral component of today’s construction industry is Information Technology (IT). Utilising the data it generates, IT contributes significantly to meeting industry needs and adapts to and supports construction trends. It is in fact one of the core utilities or services that support an infrastructure. This results in tremendous risk to the business should there be any IT downtime. To mitigate downtime, it is necessary to build resilience into IT components and design.
Industry context and trends
How does IT support construction industry trends? “Some of the trends Africa is currently experiencing are increasing industrialisation and urbanisation. Related to this is a rise in energy demands. These trends lead to the need for increased access to, usage and sharing of data which is generated or ‘pulled’ by IT,” says Jaco Cronje, Operations Director for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company.
