Seriti Coal Mines

Seriti Coal Mines – 28km Pipeline

The project entailed the installation of a 28km pipeline that ran from Mac Dam to Proxa Brine plant, Lethabo Power Station, and a control dam. The pipeline was constructed using HDPE piping to ensure optimal performance and durability.

The BT Industrial Advantage

We finished the project earlier than expected. The pipeline was overdesigned and overspecified, which is common in most mines. We presented our findings to the CEO, CFO, and Chief Procurement Officers, demonstrating the impact of the over-specification and suggesting ways to optimise the design to reduce the project’s CAPEX by 34%.

Macadamia nut farm in Mpumalanga

Precision farming for macadamia nuts involves strategically using technology and data-driven techniques to maximise crop production while minimising resource waste. It starts with soil analysis to determine precise nutrient requirements and involves targeted fertilisation and efficient irrigation management. Precision agriculture also utilises monitoring tools to detect and manage pests and diseases, reducing the need for broad-spectrum pesticides. Yield monitoring, GPS technology, and data analytics enable farmers to make informed decisions about crop management, and automated machinery enhances efficiency. This approach optimises macadamia nut cultivation, increasing productivity and sustainable farming practices.

The BT Industrial Advantage

Precision farming aligns well with our ethos and approach. We designed and manufactured the HDPE pipes in line with the system requirements, enabling our clients to reduce transportation and installation costs by 15% relative to alternatives.

Moma mine expansion

Located in Mozambique, Africa, the Moma titanium mine is one of the world’s largest deposits of titanium minerals, situated 160km away from the city of Nampula. Kenmare Resources owns the mine containing the minerals ilmenite, rutile and zircon used to create titanium dioxide pigment. Production of heavy mineral concentrate (HMC) began in April 2007, with 1,201,100t of HMC produced and 853,100t of finished products shipped in 2020.

Mining of titanium minerals at Moma is done through dredging. The first deposit mined was Namalope flats, where the dredges cut the ore at the surface level, causing the sand to slide into the dredge pond that is 800m long, 300m wide and 15m deep. The sand pumped by the dredges is collected by a wet concentrator plant (WCP), which uses two trammels to treat oversized materials while underflow materials pass by the surge bin. The HMC is separated from silica sand and clay tailings by spiral separators, with the total sands mined comprising 5% of the weight of the HMC.

The expansion of Moma involved upgrading the capacity of the existing dredges, MSP, product storage facility and WCP. A new WCP, wet high-intensity magnetic separation (WHIMS) unit, auxiliary ilmenite plant (AIP), starter and dredge pond were added. The new WCP has a 2,000tph spiral feed capacity at a new dredge pond on the Namalope reserve.

We collaborated with Hatch, an international Engineering Consulting firm, to undertake the Kenmare overland piping project for the mine. The project required 19 kilometers of SANS 4427-2 HDPE pipes and related accessories, which measured 450mm and 200mm, respectively. The pipes underwent rigorous standards and compliance testing.

The project needed to be completed between levels 3 and 5 of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the lockdown, border control was stringent, making transporting raw materials and finished products in and out of the country extremely difficult.

The BT Industrial Advantage
Our team successfully completed the project despite the obstacles brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, including different levels of lockdown. We efficiently managed the inbound and outbound logistics of raw materials and finished products, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to project success. We met and exceeded expectations by adhering to production specifications and delivering all piping ahead of schedule. 

This project’s success highlights BT Industrial’s exceptional expertise in HDPE pipe manufacturing, adaptability in challenging situations, and dedication to providing clients with outstanding results.

Moreover, Kenmare proceeded to achieve production and profitability records from the Moma mine.
