EMCON has over 15 years experience in the valuation of electrical distribution and transmission system assets, asset surveying, data gathering and asset inventory creation.
EMCON conceptualised and developed the original Rural Electricity Distribution Master Plan for Namibia, taking an integrated approach to consider both grid and off-grid solutions for rural electrification.
EMCON offers general electrical engineering services to a wide range of clients, which include power utilities, supply authorities, government institutions, local authorities, developers, mines and other private corporate clients.
EMCON pioneered rural grid electrification in Namibia, developing an appropriate electrification concept as well as the associated technical standards, introducing prepayment metering to the country as part of the process.
EMCON has been conducting detailed meter surveys and audits since its inception. We have to date audited over 17,000 revenue meters, ranging from domestic to large power user installations, both conventional and prepaid meter types.
