Mott MacDonald is lenders’ technical advisor for Mamba Cement project, South Africa

Mott MacDonald is providing construction and operational monitoring, environmental assessments and independent water compliance auditing as lenders’ technical advisor for the new Mamba Cement manufacturing plant in South Africa. The consultancy previously provided a technical review of the financing, design, construction and operation of the plant, which led to a successful financial close in March 2014.

The R1.8 billion Mamba Cement plant will be located at an established limestone deposit near Northam in Limpopo province. It will have a capacity of over one million tonnes per annum and produce and sell cement into the blended cements, readymix and construction industries across South Africa. An on-site waste heat recovery system will be capable of generating 25% of the power required to operate the plant.

Jim Grundy, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Mott MacDonald’s strategy has been developed, tried and tested on infrastructure and industrial projects over many years. Our experts are able to deliver bespoke advisory services to lenders anywhere in the world, covering the full range of technical, commercial, environmental and social due diligence across a large number of sectors.”

Construction of the new cement plant is expected to be completed by early 2016.
