Trellidor Bedfordview secures Eskom mobile transformers


Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters have been fitted to 10 Eskom mobile transformer units to protect them from a variety of threats. The Trellidor franchise responsible for this interesting project is located in Bedfordview and owned by Anthony Scribante. “Our client estimates that as many as 80 units could eventually be commissioned,” he said.

The mobile transformer units are being used by Eskom to supplement power supply when sub-stations go down. They are transported on low-bed trailers and each truck transports five units. These mobile sub-stations can be used during the maintenance of permanent sub-stations.

“These are the first units of their kind in South Africa and depending on how they work, further roll-out will happen. We’re really hoping that these test units are successful because if the full roll-out happens, it will help to alleviate power outages around the country.”

Trellidor Rollerstyle shutters are manufactured from aluminium and are available in a variety of slat options including punched, vented or solid. The shutters are custom-made to fit each opening and can be manually operated or automated. In addition to offering excellent security in the lock-down position, the shutters also assist with internal temperature and noise control.

Securing this contract was a team effort between the Trellidor Bedfordview franchise and Trellidor head office. “Sales Consultant Brett Francis worked with our client for about six months before the first two units rolled off the line. Trellidor RSA Sales and Marketing Manager Paul van Blerk was extremely helpful in getting the project underway, as was Trellidor Field Technical Manager Ryno du Preez.”
