Sarens South Africa was requested by a leading diamond mining company in Botswana to relocate one of their Komatsu shovels over a distance of 35km. Sarens used 18 axle lines SPMT's of 3.6m wide to move the weight of 550t. Sarens South Africa was able to save the client 2 months in production by utilising this transport solution.The move itself including travel, loading and offloading was executed within 9 days. This successful move has resulted in talks for additional work and it is one of the first major initiatives in Botswana for Sarens.
