Electrical Engineering

How Electrical Engineering Continues to Push South Africa Forward

Electric engineering is a noble profession. Behind some of the latest and most cutting-edge innovations is a workforce that is dedicated, professional and imaginative. One only needs to look at the rich history and legacy of this discipline to realise how much it has helped change South Africa and the world for the better. Without electrical engineering, many of the modern marvels that we have come to take for granted would never have existed.

A mere few decades ago, the first publicly available cellular phones were bulky and featured nearly zero reception. By the late 1990s, with thanks to electrical engineering developments in GSM technologies, cellphones soon started to do far more than merely make and receive phone calls. Today, it has quite literally become a race against time to develop the smallest, sleekest and most multi-functional cellphones available on the market.

The many advancements in cellular technology are in large part owed to impressive breakthroughs in electrical engineering and computer technology. The original leaps and bounds made in this industry are initially owed to the solid electrical engineering concepts behind them. Even to this day, electrical engineering principles and expertise are required to come up with innovative and new devices that continue to be more complex in their operation. There will always be a need for electrical engineering services.

Make Electrical Engineering Work for Your Business

At Gast, we provide engineering expertise to the benefit of our clients. Our engineering disciplines include mechanical, structural, electrical and civil. Our areas of expertise include bulk earthworks, bulk water supply, environmental, geotechnical, water purification, sewerage and agricultural, to name a few. We are proud of our celebrated history in the engineering sector in South Africa and continue to make our expert services available to the benefits of our valued clients.

Throughout the years, we have developed a leading offering of electrical engineering solutions. We offer our services to the construction and civil engineering fields, in both installation and design services. This includes various design modelling and cost-efficiency modelling, including a selection of “Green” solutions.

Our company has various electrical installation teams, with an operational footprint across the continent. These teams are seasoned in commercial and industrial installation services, including new installations and building maintenance below 3 300V. Our teams remain dedicated to adding value to the concerns and businesses of our clients, and work with you every step of the way to provide you with the engineering solutions that your business needs.

Other Engineering Disciplines and Offerings From Gast

We are proud of our extensive service offering. Aside from providing electrical engineering solutions, we also offer an array of other solutions designed to meet our clients’ ever evolving and changing needs. In terms of civil engineering, we have provided various design and installation services since the early 1990s to multi-faceted clients around the world. This includes specialisations in geotechnical engineering, water resource engineering, bulk earthworks, bulk water supply, and urban engineering and hydraulic engineering, among others. These are only a few of the many civil engineering disciplines that you can expect from our experts.

Our structural engineering solutions have been developed to assist our clients with their building and construction needs. We provide engineering support and design capabilities in every facet of structural requirements. Our professional teams provide each client with the most cutting-edge and superior designs, while also creating the same within the budget framework.

Structures can frequently be subjected to extreme forces, such as dynamic loads of traffic or waves, and large variations in temperature, or high pressures from water or compressed gases. Taking these challenges into consideration, our teams engineer structures that are able to withstand these extreme forces. Let us help you meet the demands of your sector through engineering expertise.

We are proud of our long history of service in the engineering industry. Our teams are dedicated, professional and experienced, and bring many years of experience to the industry. At Gast, our regional, continental and global footprint just continues to expand. We look forward to the future and to bringing our services and solutions to even more businesses.
