About Us


Our Vision

The company’s vision is to become a “contractor of choice” to the coal mining industry in the supply of the following services:

  • Cost effective supply and operations of coal processing plants which meet our client’s throughput, quality, and safety allocations.
  • Professional services in the consulting field, in terms of due diligence, pre-feasibility, bankable feasibility, and metallurgical trouble shooting studies.

The company is committed to the highest standards of safety, environmental and health performance at all times and fully supports the SHEQ management standards and systems of our partners/clients.


What we do ?

The modular plants, in which we specialises, are gaining popularity in the coal industry. They are ideally suited to its remaining Witbank coal reserves, which are mostly widespread small pockets. A modular plant can be designed to process small or large amounts, and is easy to relocate as well. It is important to note that we use traditional original equipment manufacturers (OEM) for its major equipment items.

Management has one main growth objective – to build two modular plants every year and two new operations and maintenance contracts annually.
