Published: 9th June 2006

South African firm B&W Instrumentation and Electrical has secured a R5,67-million contract at Debswana’s Damtshaa Diamond Mine near Orapa, in Botswana.

The contract involves the electrical, instrumentation, lighting and small-power installation at the Damtshaa double-up project for Bateman Projects Botswana and its client, Debswana Diamond Company.

Bateman will effectively double the capacity of the diamond-pro-cessing plant at Damtshaa to 400 t/h of run-of-mine kimberlite through a second secondary-crushing stream, stockpile belt feeders, an additional 150-t/h dense-media separation plant, a high-rate thickener, a tailings-disposal system and associated services.

“We are undertaking the electrical and instrumentation project in conjunction with local partner Bokamoso Engineering of Botswana.”
