WELCOME TO PANEL TECHNIQUE

“Right people, better products!”

Panel Technique (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1989 as a complete, autonomous Electrical Low Voltage Assembly (Panel) manufacturer, and today supplies LV assemblies throughout Africa, Europe, and Australasia through a local distributor.

From humble beginnings, where the fabrication process was manual profiling and forming of the sheet steel, to a modern, fully functional workshop, comprising CNC profiling, cutting and bending, with a unique 7 stage phosphate pre-powder coating treatment plant.

Since 2006, at the time it became mandatory in South Africa for all Low Voltage Electrical Assemblies to comply with the European (IEC) standards, Panel Technique has been at the forefront of compliance, with our 100% locally manufactured range of assemblies achieving full compliance with the Standards, as they are prescribed in South Africa, by submitting sample assemblies for certified testing at the South African Bureau of Standards, National Electrical Test Facility (NETFA).

As a SANS/IEC 61439 accredited supplier, coupled with our 30 years in the industry and over 490years of service/experience from a staff compliment of only  51 people, guarantees our promise of highest quality, competency and expertise at all times.

From the beginning, Panel Technique has always identified ‘People’ as being the key to a good business, hence our motto “Right people, better products”!

NAKAMBALA PRODUCT ALIGNMENT AND REFINERY UPGRADE

The Nakambala Product Alignment and Refinery Project for Zambia Sugar, a majority held subsidiary of the Illovo Sugar Africa Group included the construction of a modern, high-specification refinery to more than double current annual refined sugar production capacity to 100 000 tonnes, and increase the annual sugar production capacity from 420 000 tonnes to 450 000 tonnes, through a range of smaller factory improvements. Panel Technique was appointed by Bosch Projects and the client as the supplier of all LV assemblies for this project. Lead times of the electrical assemblies was a critical component to the successful delivery of the project. Our supply was complimented by weeks of on-site work where we retrofitted equipment into existing panels.

WINDER UPGRADE

In order to keep the Mill on a level playing field with others of its kind, it was necessary to upgrade the controls of the winder. Apart from keeping up with technological changes in the world today, the upgrade of the controls of the Winder need to also allow for more convenient fault finding as well as more accessible spares when they are needed. The new MCC manufactured by Panel Technique is housed in a new substation building with access to the MCC from the paper machine floor making it convenient for personnel to work between the substation and the Winder. New MCC panels were designed and built according to a new standard of panels adopted at the mill, a design that has won the Southern Cross award in the Group.

VEOLIA KRUGER A/S

LOW VOLTAGE MOTOR CONTROL PANELS

Kafubu Water and Sewerage Company (KWSC) entrusted Veolia, through its subsidiaries Veolia Water Technologies and Krüger A/S, to rehabilitate and expand its water and wastewater infrastructures serving the Copperbelt region in northern Zambia. The USD 101.6 million contract aimed at improving the water and wastewater services in Ndola, Luanshya and Masaiti urban areas and strengthening the capacity of KWSC to operate the facilities in an efficient and sustainable way. With about 67% of water wasted through leakages in the distribution network and sewer overflows –flooding streets and causing serious hazards to health and property – the infrastructure required a complete overhaul.
The rehabilitation programme comprises approximately 147 km of distribution networks for drinking water; 21 groundwater wells; 6 raw water intake installations for surface water; 6 waterworks; and 18 pumping stations. In addition, the 9 existing wastewater treatment plants will be renovated, with approximately 30 km of sewer networks being upgraded.  Panel Technique was appointed for the manufacture and supply of all Low Voltage motor control panels, together with some on site modifications to existing installed equipment.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US!

“SOME KIND WORDS ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICE”

  • "Firstly, we would just like to thank PT for their commitment and excellent service from day one. It has been very refreshing working with guys who are keen to service their clients’ needs and get things done right. Including Anand leading your site team, we have found him to be very accommodating and respectful and also performs really well even when the pressure is on. Although we are not quite finished yet and there is probably a lot more challenges to come. Regardless of this the above is true and a correct reflection of the PT work ethics."

    WILLIAM S
  • For the past few years, I have worked hand in hand with Lloyd to assist us with numerous services from retrofits to complete new motor control centres. At no one time have they failed me, and they have always been on time, making them a reliable partner to us. As Panel Technique custom build their own panels, we were able to sit with them and design a board to suit our application and specific safety standards, but still comply with the LV assembly standards as they are prescribed in South Africa. With this exercise, our LV MCC was awarded the ‘Gold Southern Cross Award’. I therefore strongly recommend their services.

    WILLIAM D
  •     "Panel Technique is the best."

    BARRIE
  • Lead times of the assemblies were a critical component to the successful delivery of the Project. Panel Technique (Pty) Ltd supplied a quality product, within the timeframe, and within budget, proving to be a very reliable supplier, and this, in turn, contributed to the successful completion of the project. We would not hesitate to recommend Panel Technique (Pty) Ltd for any projects of this nature and value their ongoing support as a supplier.

    NEIL
  • "We recommend Panel Technique for the exceptional service that was provided as a Low Voltage Electrical Assembly Manufacturer during the last 3 years on various projects.
