Mr Yves Metz and Mr Christophe Blanc (Senior Executives from Ingerop France) visited the Hazelmere dam site in South Africa. Mr Duane Booyse (Resident Engineer on the dam project) and Dr Devon Mothersille (Specialist Anchor Consultant) delivered presentations to representatives from Ingerop France and Ingerop South Africa (ISA) which updated the visitors on the status of the dam construction with particular reference to the Piano Key Weir and the ultra-high capacity rock anchors. It is noteworthy that Dr Mothersille also pioneered the use of a drone to observe the progress of the dam construction and this video footage was also presented to the riveted audience.
After completing a detailed tour of the dam site the delegation enjoyed a meal at the famous south african golfer, Ernie Els’s restaurant (The Big Easy) at the Hilton Hotel in Durban.
Based on the discussions there is no doubt that the ties between Dr Mothersille and the Ingerop Group have strengthened and this collaboration will prevail on major infrastructure development projects in the future.
