Miner accomodation

Kwikspace lands major Canadian deal.

The Canadian mining company, Dundee Precious Metals (DPM), has started work on a R2.3 billion acid plant in the Tsumeb region of Namibia and Kwikspace Modular Buildings, in partnership with Pupkewitz Megatech, have been contracted to provide six office space units (54 m2 each in size) for the inception phase.

DPM says the mine will eliminate the sulphur dioxide emissions in Tsumeb and at the same time create a viable by-product, sulphuric acid, that could be sold to other mines operating in Namibia.

This R2 million project has a turnaround time of only 4 weeks, with completion at the end of this month, and provides valuable space for key decision makers working at the mine.  

Kwikspace office units are loaded onto trucks from Cape Town and transported 2 000km to Tsumeb where they are offloaded and commissioned within three hours.

The smelter is one of only a few in the world which is able to treat arsenic and lead bearing copper concentrates and is a major custom smelter with brown-fields expansion potential.

Leon Du Plessis, Kwikspace's regional sales manager in the Western Cape says this project and the previous ones on the smelter, have showcased the ability and professionalism to partner with major industry role players.  

"Kwikspace’s quick turnaround time and quality of product and service has ensured that we are the partner of choice for the mining industry,” he says.
