what we do
AES operates and manages energy & utility plant on behalf of industrial users across various industries throughout South Africa. AES’s outsourced operations include the takeover of existing energy & utility operations, as well as upgrades to or new-build energy plant operations.
AES operates boilers (steam generators) and other utility plant (compressed air, water treatment, chilled water) to generate and supply steam and services to its industrial client-partners for subsequent use in their production processes. AES formulate bespoke solutions involving the takeover of existing boilers & utility plant installations, upgrading of existing facilities or installation of new equipment, including the subsequent operation thereof and the supply of steam & services. Various investment funding and ownership options can be applied to reduce the capital cost for potential client partners.
AES focuses on optimisation of the full steam & utility system to improve reliability & efficiency. Operational expertise, prior experience and in-house skilled resources are applied by AES to offer its client partners guaranteed operating efficiencies and minimum performance levels (availability, quality of supply). This ensures that risks associated with the provision of steam & utilities are diminished, with AES held accountable for delivering a reliable, quality supply into its client partner’s processes. AES provides extensive boiler training and utility training to its staff, thus AES’s outsourced services mitigate the need for Client Partners to have their own staff and to carry the responsibility and risk associated with 3rd party boiler training.
