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.”
