Through its Middelburg depot, Steinmuller Africa 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.

The plant hire division boasts a comprehensive range of equipment consisting of cranes, trailers, tractors, welding machines, generators, rigging, grinding and drilling equipment. Mpho Muvhango, Corporate Communications Specialist at Steinmuller Africa
She notes 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. 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,” Mpho points out.
Expansion of crane fleet
The company has also simplified its equipment hire process. 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 selection of trailers, tractors, welding machines, generators, rigging equipment and other construction tools.
In addition to the planning, maintenance and repair of complete power generation plants, the company designs and manufactures power plant components, at its workshop in Pretoria.
