Namwater visits Dundee

Namibian Water Corporation Limited (Namwater) employees described their recent visit to the Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb site as “having served their purpose”.
Five employees from various departments of Namwater took up Dundee on its open door policy, permitting the company to offer free tours of the operation to any individuals, groups, companies or members of the public.
The main aim of the visit was for Namwater employees to see firsthand 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 see processes of suctioning, controlling, mudding and water. “We want to find a way of sucking out mud in a way that will not damage the canal or endanger laborers” 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” added Kambanda with a smile. Dundee site tours are gaining popularity as this is the fourth visit from the public in as many months to date this year.
Site tours are open to all and are in line with the President Hage Geingob’s Harambee Prosperity Plan that encourages private sector participation in infrastructure development. The operation has hosted various schools, media houses local and international, a variety of tertiary institutions, foreign and local dignitaries as well as the President.
