Lesedi Nuclear Services Pty (Ltd), South Africa, have announced the conclusion of an agency agreement with Lightning Eliminators & Consultants, Inc. (LEC) for the integrated lightning protection and lightning prevention products, comprehensive solutions and services to be rolled out in South Africa as a primary concern, with the rest of the African continent also being considered in the foreseeable future.
Lesedi, an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) organisation in the South African power sector sees the collaboration with LEC as complementary to its value proposition of offering local engineering and integration expertise with proven high end quality products that would add substantial value to customers.
In association with earthing systems and surge protection solutions LEC utilises innovative patented charge transfer technology, in concert with comprehensive and integral consulting, assessment and design. All work product is based on state of the art engineering principles and physics which has enabled LEC to successfully install and maintain lightning protection systems (LPS) and solutions that divert direct lightning strikes and protect against lightning’s secondary effects in over 90 countries, and throughout the United States for over 45 years.
Lightning Protection systems are engineered to prevent lightning from striking within a designated area of protection. LEC’s ‘No-Strike’ warranty ensures complete protection on all LEC supervised installations and annually maintained DAS® - Dissipation Array Systems.
