Steam Bio Shipment Update

As many of you are aware, we have the honour of being part of SteamBioAfrica; a project aimed at creating a sustainable and economically beneficial solution to energy insecurity.

CE Bennett & Sons shipment update list

It will address two significant challenges that the region faces: the need for clean, secure and reliable energy, and the need to address the challenge of encroacher bush and other invasive woody biomass species.

How is the project progressing?

Everyone at C.E. Bennett & Sons is pleased with how well this project is progressing. The Steam Bio unit containers have now been unloaded from the MSC Alicante on which they started the journey, and are now on board the MSC Sarya III, on which they will remain until they reach their final destination.

Following the transfer of our 3 containers on the 14th of December in Lome, Togo, from the MSC Alicante onto the MSC Sarya 111, we now have confirmation that they will arrive in Walvis Bay, Namibia on December 24th 2022. 

Once the containers have arrived in Walvis Bay, they will be ongoing to the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Otjiwarongo, Namibia. The hope is still to begin the final erection, testing and commissioning in early 2023.

Our 4 team members are also still on track to head to Otijwarongo on the 8th of January for their 3-week trip to begin construction. The team consists of Andy Clark who is the Project Manager, and Drew Judge-Clark, Robin Knight and Bradley Smith who are all part of the construction team. They are excited to arrive and begin construction of this innovative and fantastic project.
