WearCheck wins new contract

ArcelorMittal South Africa (AMSA) - the largest steel producer on the African continent – has awarded WearCheck the contract for the provision of the analysis of transformer oil samples at AMSA.

In the letter of confirmation from AMSA, the group manager for IPS and group contracts had this to say, ‘Following a comprehensive evaluation and consideration of proposals submitted to us, your proposal has been successfully nominated.

‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank your staff for the comprehensive manner in which the information was presented.’

Earlier this year, WearCheck bought Transformer Chemistry Services (TCS) and brought TCS MD Ian Gray on board to run the new transformer services division. TCS has had the contract to service the ArcelorMittal transformers since 2005, and the new contract with WearCheck bears testament to AMSA’s satisfaction with the service from TCS.

During a recent audit of WearCheck by AMSA, WearCheck scored highly as a vendor of AMSA.

AMSA has the production capacity of around 7 million tonnes of liquid steel per annum, supplies over 61% of steel used in South Africa, and exports the balance.

AMSA attributes its success to ‘ongoing alignment with international best practices … ensuring the company’s continued global competitiveness and participation in international markets.’

Says Ian, ‘We at WearCheck are honoured to be selected to service AMSA’s transformers, and guarantee that our usual standards of excellence are aligned with AMSA’s best-practice ethos.’
