BACKGROUND & ORGANIZATION

Power System Dynamics (PSD) is a South Africa based company with offices established in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.

The company has been successfully providing professional engineering and consultancy services to the electricity industry since it was founded in 2001. PSD has uniquely positioned itself in the market as a small but competitive firm providing a range of specialised services. We are an international company and have done work in numerous African and overseas countries, and we have forged good relationships with many key clients.

Historically, we have also aligned ourselves with a number of consulting companies on specific projects, either as sub-contractor or in joint ventures. This mainly came about because of our complementary skills base and other synergies that were beneficial. Some of our key clients and other consulting firms we have worked with are:

Eskom (Transmission), South Africa • Electricidade (EdM) de Mozambique • Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC), Zambia • Saudi Electric Company (SEC), Saudi Arabia • Nampower, Namibia • BHP Billtion, South Africa • Xtrata Mining Group, South Africa • Suez International • Independent Power South Africa (IPSA) • High Voltage Technology (HVT), South Africa. • Maunsell/AECOM, New Zealand • Hifab Oy, Finland • Transmission Grid Consulting (TGC), South Africa • Thabile Engineering, South Africa • Mega High Voltage Technologies (MHVT1), South Africa

We also enjoy good relationships with some of the leading power equipment manufacturers and suppliers. This keeps us abreast of new technological innovations and improvements; this is especially important since it helps us to stay close to the edge of new technologies for the ultimate benefit of our clients.

To capitalise on market opportunities, PSD started a products and services company called PSD Projects, which today is an independent company known as MHVT.

Technova Power Systems (TPS) was founded in 2007 as a subsidiary of PSD to perform work in South Africa.
