Africa: Turnkey Company Wins Local, International Projects

One of South Africa’s most prominent turnkey refractory and mechanical speci- alists, The Dickinson Group, has been awarded contracts for several local and international key industrial and mining projects.

The company has secured a number of projects for 2007, including a blast furnace rebuild for Mittal Steel, in Vanderbijlpark, an ACP shutdown for Anglo Platinum, a Mopani copper mines smelter project, in Zambia, and an anode baking furnace rebuild for Dubai Aluminium.

The group, with alliance partner company Lizmontagens, of Portugal, has been awarded two large glass-furnace projects by PFG Building Glass.

Local float-glass manufacturer PFG is currently spending R1-billion on expanding and improving its local production capacity, including the construction of a second float-glass production line, which is scheduled to be commissioned early in 2007. The Springs float line currently produces 140 000 t of flat glass a year. The new one-kilometre-long production line will double the company’s manufacturing capacity. The two contracts secured by The Dickinson Group and Lizmon-tagens include the mechanical erection and the refractory installation on PFG’s rolled-glass furnace and the refractory installation on its new SP4 float furnace and tin bath.
