Technical & Cape Town Cultural Tour – Friday June 29th

You traveled several miles to attend the Power Africa Conference 2018. It is our responsibility to make your experience informational and as memorable as possible. We are offering an opportunity  for a technology and cultural tour to all our participants. Details of which are below.

 

Technological Tour

                    

SustainPower provides turnkey solutions for sustainable power generation, including neighbouring technologies such as gas treatment, power plant and biogas plant management systems. Their product range consists of containerised generators and combined heat and power plants (CHPs) driven by sustainable fuels such as biogas, landfill gas and natural gas.

Have a look at different product lines Sustain Power offers and the key technology underlying them. The future generation of products might also be introduced. Gather your folks and join us for this technical tour. The tour would be given by key persons who hold the technological foundation of Sustain Power.

 

 

Turtle always wins the race. This time the turtle is winning the race by combining innovation with solar technology. It is a  Solar Kiosk which can be assembled off site and then deployed by simply offloading the container. It feeds of the sunshine and goes inside the container when dark for security. It sells electricity by bottle. A Recycled plastic bottle is cut in half and a battery is inserted. The lid of the bottle is converted into a 12V cigarette lighter socket. This simple design allows communities to build and maintain their own battery packs.

James Van Der Walt, founder of Solar Turtle, will introduce this exciting project with a hands-on demonstration. You don’t get to see this turtle everyday, unless you decide to bring to your neighbourhood.

 

Cultural Tour

         

You are in Africa not just for conference. Are you ?? If not, we got you covered. A full guided professional tour with on-going narration and historical perspective throughout the afternoon.

We explore three of the most well-known landmarks in Cape Town.

The Castle of Good Hope: Built in the late 17th Century, it is considered to be the oldest building in South Africa. Home to Dutch Governors and military, it was the bastion of colonialism for many years.

District Six: During apartheid, District Six had the largest number of forced removals in Cape Town. Up the 60000 people were moved out of the area for being the wrong colour. We visit the very touching District Six Museum.

Bo Kaap: also known as the Malay Quarter. As slavery ended, this community sprung up around the first Mosque in South Africa. A great many of these people were of Malay origin and therefore of the Muslim faith. Today, the majority are descendants of those slaves. The area has become famous for the bright colourful homes and buildings as well as the spices and food that have become part of South African cuisine.
