An international leader in load testing solutions with a global network of sales and rental offices, Crestchic is attending the NOGTech Oil & Gas Technology Exhibition, Lagos, from 4-6 June 2013.

NOGTech is Nigeria’s leading oil and gas technology event, now in its fourth year. Held at the EKO Conference & Exhibition Centre in Lagos, the event is strategically positioned in the commercial centre to bring together government ministries, industry stakeholders and key oil and gas professionals. The 2013 conference and exhibition will continue to demonstrate how the adoption of new oil and gas technology can improve cost reduction, drive efficiency and increase production.

Paul Brickman of Crestchic explains: “This event in Nigeria provides Crestchic with the opportunity to capitalise on the increase in demand for loadbank testing systems as markets expand in this region of the world. This is especially evident in the areas of onshore and offshore, and independent power. Crestchic currently has two high profile contracts with Wartsila – the global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions for the marine and energy markets – in Gambon and West Africa.”

Crestchic loadbanks are primarily sold and rented to customers operating in the oil and gas, marine, data centre and power generation sectors. Through its industry-leading loadbanks solution, Crestchic provides a means to commission, test and service all types of power sources, including generators, turbines, batteries and fuel cells. The company manufactures a wide range of AC and DC loadbanks for both resistive only and resistive-reactive applications. Loadbanks vary in size from 30kW to 6000kVA and are designed to operate a 3 phase, 50 or 60Hz.
