CA Components has become a leader in the production of medium to large sized gas powered engines in South Africa, exporting more than 600 engines to date..

The gas-powered engines, developed in conjunction with a UK based company are used to power generator sets supplying electricity to hospitals, hotels and shopping centres in the UK and Europe.

Once fitted to the generator sets, these engines produce electricity but also extract heat from the exhaust and engine cooling system for domestic consumption. As well as heating buildings in winter, the engines can also cool water for air conditioning purposes via a chilling system.

The engines have been designed to run on different kinds of gas, from North Sea gas to landfill gas as well as sewerage gasses.
