Utilities

Ageing grids and constantly increasing power demands are making reliable power delivery harder to achieve. We enable existing and new power facilities to minimise the power outages that impact the health of their balance sheet and the lives of their customers.


Deregulation and its results have put incredible pressure on utility companies to deliver superior financial performance for investors while dealing with such factors as:
  • cost-effective life-extension solutions
  • monitoring and automating electrical distribution system
  • outsourcing engineering, operating and maintenance functions
  • reducing operating cost
  • improving personnel safety
  • increasing uptime and reliability

Eaton is a recognised leader in providing generation, transmission and distribution solutions for the Utility segment.  Our highly advanced and sector-specific solutions integrate the latest technology with high quality products including switchgear, pre-fabricated switchgear houses and motor controls.
