“Reliable food production and sanitation are absolutely fundamental for large scale economic development,” said Stuart Harvey, managing director of Softstart UK. “We are helping put in systems with life expectancies of 25–50 years, from which whole generations of people will benefit enormously as they build a modern, sustainable and secure standard of living.”
All the soft starts will be certified by Lloyds before dispatch from the UK and are due for installation and commissioning in September and October 2012.
The Iraqi soft starts are fitted with load brake disconnects and fuses and line and bypass vacuum contactors, while the Egyptian units also have load brake earth switches and power factor correction.
