Hi Ardele

Being involved in many projects and lately constructing the OCGT plant at Sasol Secunda, which since have moved into the phase two of the project. This phase of the project will change/complete the CCGT and two HRSG’s (heat recovery steam generators) are being constructed to the existing plant. It was during the ‘heavy lift’ operations that I met up with your team of enthusiastic and dedicated team. From fist arriving on site followed by the crane assembly, pre rigging set up, rigging and moving out was outstanding.

The task was executed successful and very professional by your leadership and team.

Thanking you.

Sarens South Africa was able to save the client 2 months in production by utilising this transport solution.The move itself including travel, loading and offloading was executed within 9 days. This successful move has resulted in talks for additional work and it is one of the first major initiatives in Botswana for Sarens.

Platinum Potential Under Scrutiny
As part of its growth strategy into the mining sector, crane hire company Sarens SA is keeping a watchful eye on the platinum market, believing that the commodities revival will also see growth for the company going forward. The mining sector currently contributes a small portion to Sarens SAs business, however, as new life is breathed into projects deferred as a result of the economic slowdown, project construction will see the light of day in the near future, Sarens SA technical & projects director, Lance Strachan, tells Nelendhre Moodley.
