The plant will produce both a domestic and an export product.

“We are excited to partner once again with such a prestigious organisation. The quality of our engineering designs in the earlier project phases as well as our competitive pricing and well-established reputation in coal projects ultimately secured us the work when Exxaro embarked on a campaign to develop one of their key coal assets in the Belfast area,” said Alistair Hodgkinson, Senior Vice President at DRA.

“This latest partnership allows DRA the opportunity to showcase our vast experience in successfully implementing large-scale coal projects and the added value we can offer our clients on any project,” added Hodgkinson.

The project will commence in January 2018 and is expected to be completed in October 2019.
