On display at Zest WEG Group’s large outdoor stand at Electra Mining Africa this year will be not only its growing range of products, but also its integrated approach that offers customers significant added value in the execution of large projects.

One of the new products being launched at the event which is expected to draw the attention of visitors and customers is the WEG Motor Scan solution. This innovative device facilitates the monitoring of electric motor performance from a mobile phone and will help mines to avoid unplanned downtime.

Zest WEG Group integrated solutions executive Alastair Gerrard says the group’s entrepreneurial approach to aligning with customer requirements has led to the cost-effective packaging of its offerings.

“In today’s mining sector, it is no longer enough to come to the market with a good product,” says Gerrard. “It is increasingly important to partner with customers in the design and delivery of integrated solutions that will enhance their bottom lines and achieve lower cost of ownership.”

The growth of Zest WEG Group’s product portfolio and the increased size of many aspects of its equipment range, will see the company consolidate its exhibition on one large outdoor stand near the show’s main entrance.

“Moving with the trend of tailor-made solutions that leverage off our extensive portfolio, our integrated solutions approach will provide significant benefits to customers. It also strengthens our ability to supply and manage large projects,” he says.

Gerrard emphasises the value of early engagement with customers, which facilitates an in-depth understanding of the specific demands of projects. This enables Zest WEG Group to identify where it can contribute added-value offerings, drawing on its diverse product range that includes electric motors, vibrator motors, variable-speed drives, switchgear, motor control centres, mini-substations, generator sets, transformers, containerised or mobile substations and E-houses.

Further, of interest will be WEG’s recent acquisition of steam turbine manufacturing specialist TGM, which has a well-established reference base in the Brazilian market. Together with this, Zest WEG Group is growing its energy generation offering to include solutions in the renewable-energy space.

Gerrard highlights the company’s Level 2 broad-based black economic-empowerment status and its extensive local manufacturing capabilities with four standalone facilities, enhancing its procurement value to customers in the mining sector.
