With experience in providing and managing successful camps in remote locations, Tsebo Site Solutions (TSS) challenges the boundaries of what is possible for business in physically remote areas.
Regardless of how limited the existing infrastructure or supply connections, TSS will find a way to make your location feel like home away from home.
Remote areas like Aggeneys in the Northern Cape face significant skills shortages with the result that skilled contractors need to be brought in from outlying areas to staff the Pella Camp project. The cost of setting up a contractor camp can quickly become exorbitant for the mine and the expectation is that the contractors source their own housing. However, rates for the limited available accommodation are excessive as demand outweighs supply. Additionally, if contractors aren’t situated close to the site, people have to travel long distances to work, which poses a safety risk as a result of fatigue.
With more than 20 years in the remote camp business, TSS has the expertise and experience to run a successful contractors village in difficult-to-reach locations. We have identified Oasis in the Wilderness, a guest farm in the Pella area, as an ideal location to establish a contractors village to service the Gamsberg and Black Mountain mines. The site is 22 km from Gamsberg and consists of two bedroom chalets, one bedroom chalets, one bedroom rondavels and a main guesthouse – all designed to accommodate supervisors and managers. We also have single room and double room accommodation for artisans and general workers. The full turnkey solution includes accommodation and three meals a day. Concessions can be made for larger groups and longer-term residents.
TSS is deeply committed to health, safety and environmental policies and procedures to ensure healthy, safe working environments. As part of the Tsebo Solutions Group, we are committed to uplifting the communities in which we operate. Our Enterprise Supplier Development Model is designed to facilitate integration between our clients and communities to ensure that they profitably participate in the remote camp supply chain, thus empowering local SMMEs and ensuring a long-term CSI legacy after the project is completed.
