Power and water: Leliefontein pump-as-turbine station

Originally intended to be a booster station, Leliefontein’s location proved ideal for the establishment of a mini hydro-electric power station. The project, a marriage between the civil, mechanical and electrical engineering disciplines, shows how municipalities can use low cost, off the shelf equipment to generate clean power in their existing infrastructure. Wellington is home to […]

The power of light in industrial process management: spectroscopy

  Process analysis technology (PAT) is an essential prerequisite for the management and control of processes which is optimal both technically and economically. Optical spectroscopy is a well-established method for quantifying compositions. It also allows for maximising the performance of a system, for example the so-called “space-time yield.” In addition to the use of “classical” […]
