Solid Wedge, a South African electrical and instrumentation solutions provider, was awarded a project for the supply and installation of electrical and instrumentation (E&I) works for a new gold plant in August 2021.
Having commenced the electrical installation in December 2021 with both time and budget constraints, Solid Wedge is leveraging its experience to deliver the project on time and within budget.
LLoyd Dzinotyiwei, MD of Solid Wedge, says due to the criticality of the project to the client’s expansion plans, the installation came with both time and budget constraints. The company’s record in executing projects of this nature stood the company in good stead during the tendering process.
“Our relevant experience in previous similar jobs was key to the awarding of this project,” says Dzinotyiwei. “This was complemented by our unparalleled responsiveness to the client’s enquiries during the tendering process, as well as our competitive pricing.”
The scope of the project includes procurement of part of the E&I equipment and accessories; the installation of the procured and free issued E&I equipment and accessories; commissioning of all the E&I works and final project documentation and handover.
With a five-month timeline, the R8-million project is due for completion in May this year.
“The project will be delivered according to budget and within the five-month timeframe as per contractual agreements. We are proud of the way we have managed to rise above the challenges on this project. Our client has commended us for good workmanship,” concludes Dzinotyiwei.
