Elsewedy Electric, the leading Integrated Energy, Infrastructure, and Digital Solutions provider in the Middle East and Africa, launched the first Busway dielectric epoxy insulation system facility in Africa.
The Busway system is a prefabricated electrical distribution system consisting of bus bars in a protective enclosure including straight lengths, fittings, devices, and accessories. It is the ideal solution for large-built structures such as high-rise buildings, commercial and residential centers, hospitals, airports, data centers and buildings that require high preventive security standards due to its excellent short circuit, distribution of loads, and significantly low magnetic field, which minimizes its fire load and maximizes safety.
Within the framework of achieving the sustainability strategy and its modern direction in the design of industrial products and applying top industry standards, Elsewedy Electric Busway system is the first local epoxy insulated Busway system in the local market, compactly designed, flexible and easy to install with minimal maintenance and manpower requirements.
The new product is available in two ranges; POWERLINK: made from the highest connective electrical grade copper conductor, and SPINE: made from bi-metal aluminum; following international specifications and to be certified by ASTA / UL.
Customers will be supported with a full design package both BIM and AutoCAD, a full pre-sales and after-sales customer services, emergency production & services teams, and a 24/7 hotline with the aim of providing a comprehensive and satisfying customer experience.
