Willard Batteries Return to Nampo 2023

Rentech Renewable Technologies and Willard Batteries are proud to announce their participation in the upcoming NAMPO Agricultural Show to be held from May 16-19, 2023, in Bothaville in the Free State.

NAMPO is one of the largest agricultural shows in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting thousands of visitors each year from across the continent and beyond. The event is a platform for industry leaders to showcase their latest products and innovations, and Rentech and Willard Batteries are thrilled to once again be a part of it.

As a leading provider of solar energy solutions, Rentech will be showcasing a range of products including solar panels, inverters, batteries and more. Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with expert consultants and learn more about the many benefits of incorporating solar energy into their agricultural operations.


Rentech’s solar products and services are relevant now more than ever given the current state of the national power supply in South Africa. It is no secret that the national power provider has been struggling to meet demand for several years, resulting in regular power outages and load shedding.


As a result, the future of the country’s power supply is uncertain, and businesses, farmers and individuals are looking for alternative sources of energy to ensure that their operations are not disrupted.


Rentech’s products are designed to be scalable and can be customised to suit the specific needs of the user. This means that they are suitable for a wide range of applications, from small-scale residential use to large-scale commercial and agricultural operations.


Rentech’s Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) offering is designed to provide a comprehensive solution for individuals and businesses looking to implement solar projects. This means that the entire project lifecycle, from initial design and engineering, to procurement and construction, is executed efficiently and effectively.


For the agricultural sector, Rentech can provide custom-designed solar solutions to suit the specific needs of individual farms. Whether it is a small-scale solar solution for a water pump/irrigation or a large-scale solar plant to power the entire farm, Rentech’s experts can design, procure, and install the solar solution that best meets the farm’s needs.


Willard Batteries needs little introduction. Willard has been a leader in the automotive and OEM battery industry for many years and their team of enthusiastic experts will once again be on hand to showcase their range of high-quality batteries.  Anyone visiting Willard’s stand will be able to meet with its battery experts who will be able to field any questions about how Willard can service their specific needs.


Corné Strydom, Sales & Marketing Executive for AutoX said, “Over the past couple of years, our experience with NAMPO has been nothing short of remarkable. The show consistently offers a diversified exhibition, interesting technology, products, and services all within one site. We, for one, are proud to have the chance to contribute in a meaningful way.


For decades now, Willard batteries have been integral part of farm life and it’s truly a fantastic occasion to connect with the agricultural community who make use of our products. Our Rentech solution is, we believe, a valuable addition to the many out there who are trying to reclaim some measure of control over the power that runs their farming enterprises. This year we have some serious and not so serious things to interact with on the stand, so we encourage everyone to visit us and have a chat at Willard Stand B 10 Nampo Park, Bothaville.”
