Mobile Phone Mast Project
April 19, 2018 | VGI Internal - Uncategorized
VGI Consulting is happy to announce that our Mobile Phone Mast Division has reached two milestones this year already. VGI Consulting has been involved with Mobile Phone Mast installations since May 2015. To date (April 2018), we completed over a 100 new greenfield towers and over a 100 new rooftop installations for our client Ericsson (MTN).
VGI is responsible for the engineering design and construction monitoring for this project. Once a site is identified, VGI becomes involved from the Council Application process up to the final stage when the civil and structural installation is completed, and the Engineer issues the Completion Certificate for the site.
PPA Flowline Pigging Project in Mozambique
April 26, 2017 | VGI Internal - VGI Africa
The EPCM Contract for the Flowline Pigging Project for Sasol Petroleum Temane (SPT) was awarded to VGI Consulting Africa Limitada, a full affiliate of VGI Consulting (Pty) Ltd. As previously, VGI Consulting (South Africa) will provide expertize and backup to VGI Africa (Mozambique) for the project to ensure that the required high standards of Sasol are met.
The project entails the establishment of pigging facilities for the gathering lines from the individual wellheads to the field manifolds and central process unit in Temane and Pande (Mozambique). The project will install interchangeable pig launchers and receivers for the intelligent pigging of the existing gathering lines. A specific challenge for the project will be the short period during the shutdown available for re-configuring of existing piping on some of the manifolds and wellheads.
This project follows the very successful completion of the Republic of Mozambique Pipeline Company (ROMPCO) Loopline 2 Project. The ROMPCO Loopline 2 Project was completed at the end of 2016 within the required schedule and well below budget by the VGI Africa and VGI Consulting team.

The 500 kW gas heater, designed by VGI and manufactured and supplied by Energas, played a significant role in the line being commissioned ahead of schedule and in a safe manner.
