Captech Tackle Energy Efficiency with New Technology Partnership

Ampcontrol Member Company Captech, a leading supplier of power quality solutions, has delivered its first voltage optimiser system, designed to deliver financial, energy and carbon emission savings, as part of a new partnership with European energy technology company, ORTEA.

As ORTEA’s exclusive distributor for Australia and New Zealand, Ampcontrol recently installed an ORTEA OPTInet voltage optimiser system into a major Australian supermarket, marking the beginning of a partnership that aims to deliver energy savings to customers through innovative energy efficiency products.

For over 40 years, ORTEA has led the European market in assisting heavy energy users and alternative energy suppliers to optimise their electrical networks with quality voltage optimisers and stabilisers.

Captech is a trusted and longstanding supplier of power quality and power factor systems to many of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, commercial and industrial operations. Australia’s major supermarket chains are typically early adopters of energy efficiency equipment, given their focus on reducing the high energy costs associated with running large refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

ORTEA’s voltage optimisers can be supplied stand-alone or alongside a power factor correction system as a full power quality package. Units are installed in series with the main electricity supply to rapidly regulate and stabilise the incoming voltage to the desired level, especially useful when the supply voltage is subject to fluctuations or out of balance.

ORTEA’s solutions will complement Captech’s current offering, including power factor correction systems and components, giving them the ability to provide full power quality packages for heavy energy users with power quality problems.

“This partnership allows us to integrate our existing products with ORTEA’s innovative and proven technology. These packages will allow our customers to take their energy optimisation to another level and directly benefit from reduced energy bills. The voltage optimisers also lessen the stress on operating equipment therefore lowering maintenance costs and extending the life of expensive assets,” said Captech Managing Director, Yury Brodsky.

“Working with ORTEA, Captech will be Australia’s single source supplier of power quality solutions and services,” Yury said.
