Hyspec has been operating four container workshops in Sierra Leone since 2011, located at the Sierra Rutile Mine site, Koidu Holdings Diamond Mine, Lunsar Dawnus and African Minerals Tonkolili mine. Hyspec Mining Services is planning to transfer all of its Sierra Leone workshops to newer and larger dome shelter workshops in the course of 2012.
“Through the services that we are providing on site, we have demonstrably helped our customers improve mining equipment uptime and increase production”, says Louis Hamman, Hyspec Mining Services General Manager in Sierra Leone. “The new workshop set-up is going to help us improve hose manufacturing conditions at Tonkolili, and services delivered to our customers further. The new set-up provides additional working space, and allows us to work in a cleaner, state of the art professional environment. Our new location in the industrial area of the mine also brings us closer to our main customers, and helps us improve hoses delivery lead time.”
