More warehouse work for SMB

4114

East Rand-based SMB Supplies SA cc has been awarded another multi-milion rand contract to seal and dehumidify various military warehouses. The latest contract, for R9.7 million, relate to various warehouses in Centurion and Bloemfontein.

By sealing the warehouses, removing humidity and replacing the normal atmosphere with inert gas, the South African National Defence Force and its Services are better able to preserve equipment stored in such facilities – and bring down maintenance costs.

The R9.7 million contract, which appears to be new work, likely at the Main Ordnance Depot in Centurion and the Department of Defence Mobilisation Centre at De Brug, Bloemfontein, follows an extension of an existing arrangement with the SA Army in June. That R3 million extension related to the maintenance and repair of unpecified environmentally controlled warehouses for the land service.

The Army has environmentally controlled warehouses at the Air Defence Artillery Regiment in Kimberley and at 35 Engineer Support Regiment at Dunnottar, near Springs, among others.

According to the Armscor Bulletin System the military has spent R64 285 087.92 on the technology since January 2007.
