Established 27 years ago, Diesel Power has, over time, expanded its services to include contract mining.

The company – part of the Buildmax Group – now specialises in opencast mining and rehabilitation services and works closely with mine owners to achieve high productivity, at the lowest cost per tonne.

According to CEO of Diesel Power, Justin Colling, these objectives are achieved through the investment in top quality equipment (which is carefully selected to efficiently handle specific tasks) and the implementation of proper operator training.

“Our solutions-driven approach to contract work requires the team to adapt quickly and seamlessly, as circumstances and requirements change. Our ability to keep abreast with market demand keeps us at the forefront of this dynamic sector,” Colling explains.

“Challenges the industry is currently experiencing, include sourcing affordable funding agreements for projects, crippling contract terms and conditions and inflexible contracting models. Unfortunately, traditional funding institutions are increasingly reluctant to fund mining projects, so other finance options and possibilities need to be explored.

“In a highly competitive and challenging industry, we are committed to continuing to find innovative solutions to assist our customers with the challenges they face. Apart from the supply of quality machines, supported by technical expertise, we have recognised the need in the local market for flexible finance and service options and a reliable engineering, repair and maintenance facility,” comments Alex Ackron, HPE Africa’s MD.
