Speaking to Engineer Magazine during Electra Mining, Pieter Van Den Berg, the Managing Director of Tshepo Themba Engineering, said “Botswana has a lot of opportunities in the mining, water utilities and other similar sectors and we feel that we can contribute to these projects so a decision was made to use Botswana as a base for the
of practical opportunities. In this field you have to have good knowledge of industrial plants and the risk of fire associated with it. Generally, the knowledge can be obtained through studying but the skills must ideally be obtained in the workplace.” He further went on to explain that with regards to fabrication these systems are critical and of a safety nature so it is mandatory that the quality of the product is of extreme high level thus well qualified welders are required The installation teams need to be meticulous in quality and have the job completed as per the approved design, codes and standards as our installation is of a safety nature.
