Pholaco – “The Cool Company”
Pholaco is situated in Atlantis Industrial Area, providing rapid bespoke green building solutions to Western Cape Province and the rest of South Africa from their pristine 5 700 m2 factory.
They expand polystyrene (EPS) resin into beads to mould EPS Blocks for Insulated Panel manufacturing and packaging industries. They also produce insulated panels for cold rooms and insulated structures. They are equipped with CNC cutting and bending machinery and also have a fully-fledged tool-room, mechanical workshop and large scale welding works that specialises in parts making and machine building.
Pholaco wishes to use the Power-Star meter and measurement software to measure their own energy usage. As a “green” company it is important to Pholaco to know that they are as efficient as possible with their energy. Pholaco is also part of the Atlantis load shedding curtailment program. This means that they can use the real-time energy dashboard to monitor whether they are within the limits set in the load curtailment agreement with the City of Cape Town.
