Ryce Engineering together with SDMO held a seminar with engineers on September 19, 2014 at the Southern Sun Mayfair, Westlands, Nairobi. The main objective of the seminar was to enlighten consultant electrical engineers and engineering companies on the importance of power generators as an alternative to power generation.


Based in Brest, France, SDMO is one of the designers and manufacturers of energy generating sets worldwide and plans to open a new office in Nairobi next year.

 “Ryce Engineering was established 50 years ago and deals with global brands such as SDMO generators and Daihatsu engine. We design, supply and commission stationery generators set (3kVA to 3,000kVA) suitable to meet the needs of the customers while maximizing efficiency with most cost effective configurations,” said Mr V.Balakrishnan, General Manager, Ryce Engineering.

“We also offer vital operational and maintenance services to ensure that there is minimal break down at any of the installed sites. We have in place skilled service technicians in various parts of Kenya who respond to emergency situations at site installations in a short period of time,” he added.

In relation to the installation and maintenance of their generators, Jean- Charles Ascoët, SDMO France representative said that the generator supports the widest power palette on the market and offers continuous backup power solutions from 1 kW to several megawatts.

The power generating sets and electricity production plants are aimed at diverse audiences. Private users are directed towards portable or domestic power generators from the portable power range while building tradesmen and professionals will find suitable products in the professional Portable Power range as well as electric pumps and welding sets (SDMO).

 “I wish to challenge all arichtects to consider putting up adequate space with enough ventilation for generators site while constructing buildings or apartments. These generators are environmentally friendly and energy saving both to the residents and at work places too,” said Johnson Rutere, Technical Manager, Ryce Engineering.
