Moving forward: TAKRAF Group’s contribution to Africa’s mining expansion

Discover how TAKRAF Group is driving Africa’s mining revival, promoting sustainable development and securing the continent’s mineral wealth for the future. Explore our history of innovation, reliability and commitment to responsible mining.

As the global economy shows signs of renewed interest in Africa’s mineral wealth, TAKRAF Group continues to play a pivotal role in the ongoing development of the continent’s mining sector. We are helping our customers to secure the metal supply of the future in a sustainable and responsible way.

For example, projects successfully executed in 2023 ranged from the fast-track delivery of a 2,000 t/h radial stacker, customized for a new platinum project in South Africa, to the design of a ship loader and stacker / reclaimer for a terminal expansion in Mozambique. Two crushing stations with TAKRAF Sizers and Apron Feeders were also successfully delivered during the year, one for a mine in Mozambique and the other, for a bauxite operation.

TAKRAF Apron Feeders supplied to one of the largest copper and cobalt producers in the DRC.


The robust TAKRAF Apron Feeder, ideal for mining applications, continues to be in demand, with another supplied to a large underground copper mine in South Africa, following the successful operation of two previously machines delivered earlier.

Our DELKOR liquid/solid separation equipment is also gaining traction throughout Africa. An order for a flotation circuit from a greenfields platinum operation in South Africa’s Limpopo province, further demonstrates our flotation cell technology expertise in the PGM sector.

The order includes 14 DELKOR BQR Flotation Cells equipped with our proprietary MAXGen mechanism for superior metallurgical performance, making it the largest flotation cell installation that we have supplied in South Africa. In another order from an existing customer, we are supplying a 21 m high-rate thickener for a gold mine expansion project in Tanzania.

Work also continues on major projects throughout Africa, including the design of a rapid train load out station for a manganese miner in Gabon and the supply of a circular blending stockyard and portal scraper reclaimer for one of the largest copper mines in Africa located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Stockyard equipment, including a slewing and luffing stacker, a full portal scraper reclaimer and associated yard conveyors, are also being supplied to a major South African diamond mine.The year also saw exciting new contracts, including the design and supply of a conveyor system and rapid train load out station in Mauritania in collaboration with the wider TAKRAF Group.

What is encouraging about these orders is not only that a number of them are from existing customers, which testifies their satisfaction with the quality of our project services and technologies, but also to their trust in us carrying out projects successfully in remote and not easy to reach areas.

Another motivating factor for us is the confidence in our aftermarket services, as evidenced by the number of clients who have engaged us to work on machines that are no longer supported by the original equipment manufacturers. Testament to this is that during 2023, a slew bearing was replaced on a bucket-wheel reclaimer for an iron ore mine and a new order was received for the replacement of a stacker boom for a power plant, both in South Africa.


Innovation out of tradition – It pays to talk to a specialist!
