From its base in Cape Town, Combustion Technology has made its name in the sound management of steam boilers for clients in different industries. With opportunities opening up in the mining sector, the company is eager to provide its solutions to clients involved in projects in Africa in 2022 and beyond. The company offers customised steam boiler rental solutions and builds containerised steam boilers.
Mining companies have been ramping up production consistently since the last quarter of 2020. Analysts predict that this trend will continue in 2022 and beyond. It is in times like these, as mining companies are focusing on their core businesses, with limited capacity and expertise to manage critical equipment is overstretched. Unfortunately, this could have implications on output, when, unexpectedly, equipment failure occurs, resulting in huge revenue losses.
Grant Renecle, The Managing Director of Combustion Technology, points out that the situation could be worse when the equipment affected is steam boilers, which need special attention and unique expertise to manage. Hence, he advises that it would be wise for mining companies to consider outsourcing the management of steam boilers to a specialist company with a proven track record in the area. The benefits would be immense: by relieving themselves of the liability that comes with managing equipment, mining companies could devote more resources towards their core business, increasing revenue.
Extensive knowhow for uninterrupted operations
Renecle affirms that Combustion Technology is well-equipped to provide a solution to mining projects to ensure uninterrupted flow of operations. This is based on the company’s extensive knowhow in the provision of modern, world-class and highly efficient environment-friendly solutions to meet any combustion and heating challenge.
“If you are looking for new ways to manage your Steam Boilers, it is time to leave it up to us,” he says, referencing the range of the company’s customer-centred solutions and the service guarantees that come with it.
Mobile Container Solutions
Combustion Technology provides both rental and sale of custom-built containerised steam boilers.
