Actolog trains 25 Nigerian UPS engineers
A Lagos-based Power and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Environment solutions company, Actolog Limited, has empowered 25 Nigerian engineers with training on how to resolve the challenge which the regenerative drive in modern elevators poses to the UPS that sustains the elevators function.
Actolog restated its commitment to keeping stock of critical spares to ensure that the turnaround time of UPS repairs was kept at the minimum. The training was in line with its determination to ensure the smooth running of elevators and other industrial loads in the country.
Actolog brought in UPS’s Design Repair Manager, Mehmet Celikel from Makelesan UPS, Istanbul, Turkey to train the engineers on designs, installations, servicing and repairs of UPS that would be able to hold excess energy discharged by the elevators when descending.
Celikel, who was at the two-day training in Lagos, facilitated by Actolog, was accompanied by the company’s Regional Manager, Africa and Middle East, Selcuk Kapseloglu.
The engineers’ were also drilled on trouble-shooting, after-sales support and maintenance. Celikel said: “The energy feedback measured by the Nigerian engineers in their various installations, were far less than those measured in other locations globally. So, I am optimistic that the solution I brought was even more reliable to resolve the Nigerian challenge than previously envisaged.”
The Managing Director of Actolog Limited, John Akadu said his company was driven by series of feedback from elevator owners in Nigeria, to invite its partners to train their technicians and engineers on the best management techniques for their elevators.
He noted that the conventional UPS would shut down temporarily or permanently, depending on the intensity of the energy dropped by the elevator, during such energy feedback, adding that such “could cause some negative consequences on the load.”
