One of the projects Gearbox has handled is the fabrication of Controls Systems for Usafi's Johkasou systems that were being installed in several areas in Nairobi.
These control systems were needed for the electrical components of the Johkasou system. According to Nia, the partnership Manager at Usafi Comfort, manufacturing locally is helpful to save on shipping costs resulting in savings we can then pass on to our customers.
The sites included Park Villas in Karen, Liza Heights in Kinoo and a single residential in Runda.
The Johkasou system in Kinoo is the biggest project Usafi has handled as it is the biggest of its kind in Kenya. It's a 60m3 system that uses five Japanese engineered energy efficient blowers.
