With completion scheduled for 2018, Kusile Power Station is expected to become one of the worlds largest coal fired power plants. Kusile is part of a multi-billion Rand expansion by Eskom to increase power supply to the energy hungry South African economy. The power station will be the first of its kind in South Africa to have flue gas desulphurisation technology installed.
We were delighted to supply 56 TRIUMPH 4 full height single turnstiles in seven converted 40 foot shipping containers. Turnstar was the obvious choice when it came to controlling access of the 15 000 construction workers entering the site daily!
The turnstiles were installed in shipping containers in order that Group 5, Basil Read and WBHO, the construction agents, would be able to move the access control installation of the massive power station to where it’s needed at short notice.
