The Network has been involved in a large number of successful mining, oil, gas and power projects. The strength and success involved in delivering on time in budget is due to experienced and dedicated teams delivering local solutions with international standards. In order to better illustrate the Group’s capabilities and experience, below are examples of past projects undertaken;

Mining Projects:
Randgold Resources' Kibali Gold Mine
Kibali Gold Mine (operated by Randgold Resources Ltd, in a joint venture with AngloGold Ashanti and SOKIMO) the involvement constitutes a comprehensive supply chain offering, comprising sourcing, procurement, warehousing, logistics, clearing and on-site handling. The speed and agility of the supply chain are key contributors to the continued project success. Over 10,000 truckloads have been moved from Mombasa to site, covering an approximate 1,700km each way. To date supply has included the movement of 100,000 MT of cement and 50 million litres of diesel fuel. Currently, the Group is focused on the transition from construction to an operational environment.

AngloGold Ashanti’s Geita Gold Mine
The Network handled the entire greenfield project including fleet and earth moving equipment mobilization and continues to support the steady state operations at the mine.
The project was successful despite operating in arduous conditions, after the El Nino rains had destroyed vital infrastructure, including roads and bridges in East Africa. It was during this time that the Group pioneered multi-modal transport for the out of gauge equipment over Lake Victoria to Nungwe Bay, about 30km from the mine site. This effective system is still in use today.

Banro Corporation
The Network has provided a full logistics service to the Banro Corporation, in Eastern DRC, for the past 4 years, working with both the Twangiza and Namoya Gold Mines. In the case of Twangiza, a gold production plant was relocated from Australia to the Eastern DRC, totalling in excess of 1,600 MT. The Namoya Gold Mine provided different challenges and required the use of specialist transportation equipment to ensure delivery of items to a remote location 480km from the border of Eastern DRC.

North Mara Mine Upgrade (Afrika Mashariki Gold Mine)
When the Tanzanian miner embarked on a plant upgrade, the Network was awarded the project services task of managing the international and Tanzanian-based logistics. This included moving cargo from various international locations to Mombasa where road transportation and delivery to site was undertaken.

African Barrick Gold
Over the past several years, the Network has been contracted to provide ABG’s operating mines in Tanzania with the ‘final leg’ logistics and customs clearance. Logistics systems were created and implemented through dispatch platforms in Dar es Salaam and Mombasa, and comprises load planning and optimization, convoy preparation and supervision, transport and heavy haulage with real-time tracking.

Oil and Gas Projects:
A highly noteworthy project has been the logistics service provision to Tullow Kenya BV under impeccable safety standards. 1,600 truckloads were moved in the isolated, tough terrains of Northern Kenya, which included infield rig shunting operations on-site.

The Tradecorp network has provided logistical support for Tullow Oil and Heritage Oil in the Lake Albert region, Uganda, demonstrating robust experience in moving oil drill rigs and camp equipment. Additional activities include servicing companies in the oil energy exploration sector such as BGP Kenya, Weatherford Drilling, SMP Drilling, Sakson Egypt and Schlumberger. Success is evidenced by the maintenance of unparalleled safety records in Uganda and Kenya.
