There is a possibility that with time, the operation of the power factor correction equipment installed is no longer monitored on a regular basis by maintenance personnel. In order to ensure that the equipment continues to function optimally (any malfunction will not have an impact on your production), it is advisable that a service/maintenance agreement is entered into.

Alpha Power Solutions (Pty) Ltd can offer you a service contract for the maintenance of the power factor correction equipment installed by ourselves or by third parties on your premises. This will ensure that the equipment remains operational at all times.
