The shareholders of engineering and project management consulting firm Read Swatman & Voigt have successfully positioned the company in Mozambique with the formation of its linked enterprise, RSV Limitada, in Maputo.

“The RSV linked enterprise model has proved to be successful and it is a natural process of consolidation that initiates this new offering,” says RSV Limitada CEO Neels Engelbrecht.

RSV Limitada was originally registered in Mozambique in 2009 after being awarded a contract to establish the infrastructure for an Australian mining company, in Tete province, in addi- tion to developing new targets.

RSV Limitada was appointed as consultant and for early works services, such as the design and setup of the construction camp, the design of bulk earthworks and terracing for the plant office and workshop facilities, the design of fuel station bulk earthworks and the provision of permanent power distribution and the power grid for the overall facility.

The contract, which was successfully completed on time, also comprised the establishment of a permanent batching plant, a storage warehouse, a mining-fuel storage facility, administration offices, a clinic and operations offices.

As a result of this successful expansion into Mozambique, RSV Limitada is expanding its focus to include the mining, infrastructure and energy sectors, which the company believes have the largest growth potential, says Engelbrecht.

“The coal deposit in Tete province has significant potential and the company is examining and pursuing available opportunities,” he says.

The company believes there are many opportunities in different sectors in Mozambique for RSV Limitada. These include infrastructure development, which is inadequate to support the country’s coal-producing capacity, the energy sector and further coal projects.

RSV Limitada will also be used as a platform to pursue oppor- tunities in the Southern African Development Community region.
