The shortage of Newsletters fortunately does not reflect a lack of progress at POLASA.  We want to report on and consult with you regarding the various working sessions held and the excellent progress made by the newly elected POLASA Board and its members.

Many of you participated in the last open Industry meeting held immediately after the AGM in November 2015 where many issues in the industry were raised and proposals listed for POLASA to action during the next year. POLASA undertook to pay special attention to developing competitive local content as envisaged by the designation of power lines, power line hardware and associated products.

You are therefore invited to an Open Power Line Industry meeting to be held on Monday 11 July 2016 from 09h00 to 12h30 at the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park.

The proposed AGENDA is as follows:

  1. Designation of Power Lines and hardware – what is happening now
  2. Joint ESKOM POLASA SHEQ, SCOT meetings – the latest
  3. Discussions with ESKOM on Panels and commercial issues
  4. The new “Burning Platform” in the industry …….!
  5. General issues or items tabled by participants……….

POLASA has to date achieved success in building up trust within ESKOM as representing the industry fairly and competently. We plan to keep on with this and need your active participation to keep the focus where it will do the most good.

Please complete the attached attendance form.  You will note that we are asking a nominal charge to cover the hire of the facility and teas and snacks.

A table will be available if you want to display one of your company brochures.
