SMEC provided electrical engineering services and resolved the power interruption challenges at Africa’s largest conference venue, the Cape Town International Conference Centre, by adding 3,000 kVA standby generation capacity.
The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) identified the need for an increase of their back-up generator capacity in order to remain fully operational during load shedding periods.
The CTICC is an iconic landmark in Cape Town and is recognised internationally as a world-class convention facility. The CTICC precinct covers an area of approximately 6 hectares.
The project scope of work included:
- Upgrading of the main building generator capacity from 2 MVA to 3 MVA
- Upgrading of the exhibition hall generator capacity from 250 kVA to 500 kVA
- Upgrading of the chiller plant generator capacity from 1 MVA to 2 MVA.
