To mark the launch of the Kyte Powertech brand last week, a new artwork was designed and commissioned to stand beside the entrance to the Cavan facility.
‘An Réimse’ (‘The Field’) pays homage to Michael Faraday and his extraordinary vision that changed our world forever. The name of the piece is also in recognition of the evolution of Kyte Powertech from green field site to the facility we see today.
Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction (1831) demonstrates how a magnetic field interacts with an electric circuit to produce an electromotive force (EMF) or voltage.
This is one of the most important concepts of electricity and a fundamental operating principle of a transformer,
The idea to install this representative piece was formulated by Clare Roe and Stephanie Leonard. The piece was designed by Paul Hennessey, a Design Engineer at Kyte, and made from upcycled waste material in the factory. Special thanks must go to Adrian Farrelly, Neil Doherty and Sean Farrelly for their help and inspiration.
