Vert Energy to support Yanmar in Southern Africa

February 2021 News

Vert Energy has been appointed by Yanmar as the official distributors in southern Africa for Yanmar industrial engines from 1 January 2021. “What’s exciting for the African market is easy access to the globally respected Yanmar brand through local specialists, offering a dependable service and technical support, in line with stringent international standards,” explains Vert Energy’s sales and marketing director, Ryan Robertson. “The addition of Yanmar diesel engines and power products to our electromechanical power generation range provides new market and application opportunities. This development also extends our services not just to gen-set manufacturers, but to many sectors, including agricultural, mining, climate control and construction.

“At Vert Energy, we align ourselves with companies that vertically integrate with our energy and electromechanical business units and provide industry with products that are at the forefront of reducing carbon footprints for use in environmentally-conscious energy solutions. By selecting the best partners and products, we are able to meet our customers’ exact requirements. Product efficiency, competitive market positioning, pristine quality standards and guarantees of extended service life, are our main selection criteria. In Yanmar, we have found a partner with whom we share all these important values.

“Our team strives to not just support the direct sale of Yanmar products, but we will also work closely with global OEMs who integrate Yanmar engines in their equipment. Yanmar’s extensive range of diesel engines provides a variety of solutions for new capital equipment manufacturers, as well as the option of potential retrofitment in certain ranges to engines that are now Tier 4 Final Stage 5 compliant with European emission standards.

“The addition of Yanmar’s L Series diesel engines strengthens Vert Energy’s position in the local pump industry. The company has been supplying electric motors to the pump industry for many years and the addition of a mechanical diesel powered engine as an alternative, represents an exciting opportunity for the company.

“The combination of Yanmar’s quality branded products and Vert Energy’s technical expertise and broad distribution reach, augers well for electromechanical power generation on the African continent.”
