KLD Construction (Pty) Ltd partnership continues

By signing the contract for the construction of the water, firewater and sewer infrastructure for the Ohorongo cement plant, Ohorongo Cement (PTY) Ltd and KL Construction (PTY) Ltd confirm the continuation of their business relationship. The partnership started July last year, when Ohorongo awarded KL Construction (PTY) Ltd the tender for building the 11km main access road to the site of the future cement plant.

Executive director of KL Construction (PTY) Ltd, Mr Achim Lück, is proud that from the start his firm had part in this major Namibian investment. ‘Our team at KL Construction (PTY) Ltd is confident that after successfully completing the access road during the rainy season, we will also succeed in providing the plant with the necessary water, firewater and sewer infrastructure.’ On sides of Ohorongo Cement, Managing Director Hans-Wilhelm Schütte is equally delighted that KL Construction (PTY) Ltd agreed to take up the challenge of constructing the water, firewater and sewer infrastructure: ‘Based on the successful execution of the first tender awarded to KL , we are confident that – as before – this firm will also succeed in effecting this contract.’

Besides KL Construction (PTY) Ltd, Ohorongo Cement employs a number of firms recognized as experts
in their respective fields to complete this 2.5 Billion N$ project, of which 350 Million N$ are allocated for infrastructure works alone. While the turn-key project of constructing the cement plant was awarded to Polysius, other works include the construction of the quarry workshop and explosives magazine by LeBau CC, as well as the construction of canteen an d ablution by New Era Investments (PTY) Ltd.

Further firms contracted by Ohorongo include Kalahari Wire Products (PTY) Ltd, Grüttemeyer & Senke Electrical Contractors, Structa Technology (PTY) Ltd as well as Nexus Civils (PTY) Ltd, Earthworks Building Civils CC and Namibia Engineering Contractors. Many of the contractors are in turn supported by sub-contractors, which gives further indication of extent and complexity of the Ohorongo project.

Controlling for quality and adherence to agreed terms, the design of all infrastructure works is under supervision of the consulting engineers Bührmann and Partners and Windhoek Consulting Engineers.
