ElectricityandControl June 2017Did we ever think that Eskom Board would be described as: ‘Living in its own oblivion and treating Eskom like a personal toy’? If it weren’t so serious, it would be laughable. The fact that the lid is at last being prised open, is good news. For now, however, we need to focus on South Africa’s many engineering achievements (often with Eskom at the core) and those individuals in the Utility who will work hard to win back the confidence of the people of this country.

ElectricityandControl March 2017A fascinating story about an upgrade of the water treatment and water supply system in Samara, Russia, is worth the read in Electricity+Control’s March 2017 issue. Similar upgrades are necessary in South Africa’s cities where ageing equipment could do with replacing. The software solution described could prevent the looming water disaster in our country! Do you know that the Department of Water and Sanitation estimates that R7-billion in potable water is lost annually (36% of the clean drinking water supply)? So, let’s take a lesson from Samara before it is simply too late.

Electricity and control february 2017Witnessing engineering at its ‘basic’ best is fascinating – with engineers in overalls rather than being dressed up; at work benches rather than in fancy offices; working on real equipment rather than clicking on an I-Pad or smart phone. I visited an actuator manufacturing set-up recently, and was impressed by the knowledge and precision that goes into producing an actuator… as well as learning about the extent of their use all over the world.

ElectricityandControl January 2017First greeting in 2017

I hope that 2017 marks the turnaround in South Africa’s ‘leadership consciousness’ which has dissipated alarmingly over the past decade or more. Take Eskom, for example… the integrity and knowledge of the top leadership in Eskom is integral to the success and advancement of the economy of this country, and to the wellbeing of its citizens. While I acknowledge that the majority of Eskom employees, including management, are first class, when it comes to those responsible for signing on the dotted line… we have been left wanting.
