Hitachi Energy awarded for best exhibition stand at 68th AMEU Convention in Durban

Hitachi Energy received an award for Best Exhibition Stand at the 68th AMEU Convention. Hosted by eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality for viable energy future.

Hitachi Energy, advancing a sustainable energy future for all, received an award for Best Exhibition Stand at the 68th AMEU Convention. Hosted by eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, the convention took place from 2 to 5 October at the Durban International Convention Centre under the theme of ‘Just Energy Transition for South Africa’.

“This recognition is particularly significant as it is the first time we have exhibited as Hitachi Energy at the annual convention of the Association of Municipal Electricity Utilities (Southern Africa),” said Malvin Naicker, Managing Director, Hitachi Energy Sub-Saharan Africa.

“Our products create solutions for utilities based on innovative technology,” said Stuart Michie, Head of Sales and Marketing for Southern Africa. Our technology solutions allow utility customers to manage their assets, improve operational effectiveness and boost network dependability by means of digitalization.

Hitachi Energy’s technologies also give utility operators flexibility due to the altered energy mix brought on by the large-scale adoption of renewable energy. This is especially important given the shared goal of accelerating a carbon-neutral future, whereby electricity is the backbone of the entire energy system.

The focus of the exhibition stand was to display digital products supporting the transition of the energy system, such as advanced distribution management. The AMEU Convention provided an ideal opportunity for Hitachi Energy to network with new and existing customers. “It was also an opportunity for visitors to learn about our company. We had specialists on hand to present our solutions, services, and products. Without a doubt, the production of sustainable, emissions-free renewable energy will become increasingly significant in the energy sector,” said Michie.

Hitachi Energy’s mission is to ensure that the world’s energy system is sustainable, flexible, and secure. The world of energy continues to evolve, and therefore Hitachi Energy is developing its energy market reach and portfolio into new areas, expanding beyond the grid.

“It is crucial that we take on the challenge of accelerating the pace of change. We need to support this ongoing challenge with innovative solutions, and that is where Hitachi Energy continues to play a leading role,” concluded Naicker.
