New Order in South Africa

SGS can look forward to another order in the timber capital in South Africa.

SGS received an order for the installation of a chip drying system in Piet Retief. The new plant is an expansion to the exisiting chipboard press.

In the course of the dryer installation, the following components have to be installed:    
- Energy system
- Cyclone group intake
- Mixing chamber
- Dryer drum
- Cyclone group outlet

The scheduled start of the project is May 3, 2021. The customer is the South African PG Bison Group. Together, PG Bison and SGS already implemented several projects in the past. Their partnership is one of concentrated knowhow, mutual respect, and a passion for top performance. In Piet Retief, SGS took over the mechanical assembly and electrical installation of a complete Siempelkamp chipboard plant as well as a used Siempelkamp KT-plant. SGS assembled steam preheaters in Ugie and in Boxburg. Another project in Ugie encompassed the mechanical and electrical installation of a Siempelkamp press line, the finishing line, the pneumatic transport system as well as the short cycle press, the Anthon saw, and the complete thermal oil piping. PG Bison also relied on the expertise of SGS to carry out revisions in the course of a large-scale shutdown.
