GE Expands Presence in South Africa
GE Oil & Gas will supply two new compressors for platinum miner Impala Platinum’s (Implats) sulphuric acid plant in Rustenburg, South Africa. The US$2 million contract for the supply, delivery, installation and commissioning of the two compressor trains was awarded through GE’s local compressor agent, Flotech.
The compressor packages also include auxiliary equipment such as lubrication oil systems, electric motors, gearboxes and instrumentation. GE Oil & Gas has developed a strong presence in South Africa’s mining and petrochemical sector. Beyond South Africa, GE Oil and Gas is pursuing opportunities in Namibia, Mozambique and Zambia, where platinum, coal and copper are mined respectively.
The new compressor packages will be commissioned in mid-2010.
