ABT provides rejuvenation solutions to extend the life of the existing install base of lead acid batteries in the Telco industry. The industry has an existing network of service partners and a significantly large number of tower sites (and batteries) in Southern Africa. Given the projected growth in the region, the company outlook has evolved from a broadly focused view on the lead acid market to a tighter focus on telecommunications. However, there are relevant solutions for micro grid utilities and uninterruptible power systems.
Battery backup is a headache for the Telco operators and is often managed in a reactive rather than predictive manner, with severe financial implications when batteries don’t reach their term of life. We offer a complete solution for battery management.
ABT has partnerships with some global industry leaders, with access to superior technology and pricing. Applied Power Technologies – a subsidiary – owns and operates Global Energy Innovations. GEI manufacturers and supports the technology used in our rejuvenation services.
Our head office is in Cape Town, with facilities in 3 other regions – Durban, Port Elizabeth, and Bloemfontein. We are currently expanding our footprint north in SA, and opening a rejuvenation facility in Windhoek, Namibia.
