Altitec has opened the doors on Altitec South Africa, following last year’s signing of a joint venture with Obelisk, a provider of infrastructure services to the global renewable energy, telecommunications and power markets.

Based in Cape Town, the new company will deliver turbine rotor blade inspection and repair services across Sub-Saharan Africa, and offer certified training courses to help new technicians enter the industry. Altitec South Africa, under the guidance of Altitec’s London team, will open a second Altitec Academy, offering its certified training courses and looking to attract new turbine blade technicians from across the continent.
