Steam Bio Africa is a project that 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.
This is a project we’ve worked very hard on as a business over the past 16 months and are incredibly proud of. It has gone from strength to strength since we were given the go-ahead to begin working on it back in September 2021, and the end is finally in sight.
How is the project progressing?
This project is progressing well and is running on time. The CE Bennett & Sons manufactured Steam Bio unit containers successfully arrived in Walvis Bay, Namibia and were carefully unloaded from the MSC Sarya III on which they completed the last leg of their shipping journey. They were then transported to the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Otjiwarongo on the 6th of January 2023, where they cleared customs and started to be unloaded.
Our excellent team of Project Manager Andy Clark and construction team members Drew Judge-Clark, Robin Knight, and Bradley Smith have also safely arrived in Namibia after departing from England on the 8th of January 2023. Once they had arrived in Namibia, they made the 4-hour journey to the CCF where they have been settling in and preparing to begin the construction of this innovative and fantastic project.
