Rand-Air sets the scene for Australian TV series

Triosphere (Pty) Ltd is a multiple award winning, independent, South African television production company with a distinguished track record in conceptualising and producing Documentaries and Factual Series for international broadcast clients including Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Animal Planet.

The company has successfully produced several, highly acclaimed, award-winning international Reality series formats with the recent filming of their fourth season of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, an Australian series in Hoedspruit, Mpumalanga. Contributing to the success of the filming was a large crew, 60+ cameras in a remote location and high quality equipment from portable compressed air and power generation rental company, Rand-Air.

“Our operation runs 24/7 with highly sophisticated, sensitive equipment requiring impeccably stable, uninterrupted power,” explains Oloff Bergh, CEO and executive producer, Triosphere. “We’re essentially a world-class television studio, broadcasting live to Australian via satellite – from a remote, temporary location. Heat, humidity, storms, floods – regardless of the challenges, there simply is no margin for error from a power supply perspective.”

 

The rental involved eight Rand-Air generators sized from 80 kva, 200 kva to 300 kva and the team worked around the clock to get all the machines off the truck, in place, and running in time for filming whilst ensuring safety compliance was met.

“Rand Air made a point of understanding our unique industry and project requirements and were meticulous in meeting our deadlines. Their engineers were knowledgeable, professional and supremely committed, regardless of the time of night or the dilemma faced. They promised and delivered equipment and service of a truly incomparable standard,” Bergh concludes.
