Orapa - Botswana
Sarens South Africa was requested by a leading diamond mining company in Botswana to relocate one of their Komatsu shovels over a distance of 35km. Sarens used 18 axle lines SPMTs of 3.6m wide to move the weight of 550t. 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.
