NAMWATER employees have described their visit this week to the Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb site as having served its purpose.
Five Namwater employees, from various departments, took up Dundee on its open door policy on Monday, which sees the company offer free tours of its operations to individuals, groups, companies or members of the public.
The main aim of the visit was for Namwater employees to see first-hand the water suctioning process at the smelter.
According to Namwater’s Chief Operating Officer for Business in Northern Namibia, Kaliki Kambanda, the main objective was to observe the suctioning, controlling, mudding and water processes.
“We want to find a way of sucking out mud in a way that will not damage the canal or endanger labourers,” she said.
According to Kambanda, the two companies are similar, in that they both perform wet suctioning.
The visitors were pleased with their tour and did not rule out the possibility of a return.
“The tour served our purpose,” said Kambanda, with a smile.
Dundee site tours are gaining popularity, as this was the fourth visit from the public in as many months.
Site tours are open to all and are in line with President Hage Geingob’s Harambee Prosperity Plan, which encourages private sector participation in infrastructure development.
Dundee has hosted various schools, media houses (local and international), a variety of tertiary institutions and foreign and local dignitaries, as well as President Geingob.
