Already a force to be reckoned with in the African power generation sector, Steinmüller Africa has taken its service delivery offering to the next level with its plant and equipment hire services. Through its Middelburg Depot, the company has expanded its plant and equipment hire services, now offering a pool of over 24 000 items for clients in the power generation, petrochemical, chemical, mining, renewable energy, pulp and paper and general Industrial sectors. To date the Middelburg Depot has handled plant projects in Sasolburg, Rustenburg, Newcastle, Richards Bay and Eskom power stations in Mpumalanga.
The plant hire division boasts a comprehensive range of equipment consisting of cranes, trailers, tractors, welding machines, generators, rigging, grinding and drilling equipment. “Through this depot, we are showing our commitment to supply our clients the best equipment for their project requirements, With this hire solution, they can get their projects up and running quicker while mitigating equipment ownership costs,” said Mpho Muvhango, Corporate Communications Specialist at Steinmüller Africa.

Our team assesses our clients’ projects and their intended outcomes to provide them with a comprehensive solution,” she said.
One-stop-shop for plant and equipment hire services
Muvhango noted that, as a South African pioneer in the steam generation industry, Steinmüller Africa is a trusted turnkey partner to its clients. As such, this offering of plant and equipment hire further extends our one-stop-shop commitment to our clients. The division’s offerings complement the company’s overall customer centric approach.
All machinery hired from Steinmüller Africa complies with national safety standards and is issued with relevant safety certificates. “We also have a dedicated Lifting Machine Inspector (LMI), responsible for all machines and lifting equipment which leaves the depot,” Muvhango points out.
Expansion of fleet to meet rising demand
The company has also simplified its equipment hire process. Muvhango pointed out that its equipment hire agreements are tailor-made to each client’s requirements, but are subject to availability. To deal with rising demand, the fleet of equipment stored at the Middelburg Depot was expanded to include several cranes ranging from 5 to 400 tons, as well as a wide range of trailers, tractors, welding machines, generators, rigging equipment and other construction tools.
Steinmüller Africa provides highly competent solutions and services for every phase of a power plant‘s life-cycle. In addition to the planning, maintenance and repair of complete power generation plants, the company also designs and manufactures power plant components, at its workshop in Pretoria.
