:: DRA’s First Plant in China

Dowding, Reynard and Associates has begun its first project in China, with the award of a contract for the design and construction of a 300 tph plant for XinWen, near Jinan in the Shandong Province. The plant will be used to treat a blend of coking coal for local consumption.

DRA is a world leader in coal processing plants and in September 2003, following a GEDA (Gauteng Economic Development Association) presentation, a delegation from China expressed interest in the company’s technical expertise in this field. The Chinese company was experiencing problems with difficult-to-wash coal and was keen to learn more about DRA’s ability in the field of coal preparation plant design. The companies signed an agreement of intent in October and extensive testwork began.

Chinese construction crews are erecting this ex-works project under the supervision of DRA site personnel. Structural steel and platework erection is virtually complete, with piping and electrics well underway. Commissioning by DRA will commence within the next few weeks.

In the past four years the company has exported and commissioned processing plants in North America, Canada, Indonesia, Ukraine, Australia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
