The NCPC-SA will be one of the technical partners of the annual Africa Utility Week in Cape Town next week, 15 to 17 May 2018. The Centre, represented on the advisory board of the event, believes the conference and supporting exhibition will once again be an excellent platform for discussing and sharing on issues around energy and water. 
African Utility Week takes place at the International Convention Centre in Cape Town. This event has been running for 18 consecutive years and has established itself as the largest power and water utilities exhibition and conference on the African continent.

South African juice company, Sir Fruit, is dedicated to serving ‘People, Planet and Prosperity’ - and to show how serious they are to their commitment to the Planet they have implemented a number of initiatives to ensure the production of an energy efficient, sustainable and low carbon product.

 

 

Assisting them in this journey is the National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA). The Soweto-based fruit juice plant signed up to participate in the national programme in (2016??) and are a recipient of support to upgrade their heating and cooling equipment.  

 

“The Soweto-based fruit juice plant has identified appropriate technology that will not only use less energy to cool their product but will replace an efficient geyser as the technology also cools and heats water,” explains Mashudu Madzivhandila, National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA), Project Manager.
