Penansa appoints new Longonjo construction manager as site works progress

Rare earths mining company Penansa has announced the appoinment of Luigi Bruni as construction manager for the site team at the Longonjo rare earths project, in Angola.

Bruni brings practical experience to the project, having served as construction manager for 15 international mining and oil and gas projects over the past 20 years.

Further, containerised 350-person accommodation facilities recently arrived in Angola, having been transported from South Africa via sea, rail and road. The multiple logistics routes for transporting containers to site have now successfully been confirmed ahead of transport of the modular processing plant.

“Construction management and logistics are both key elements to the successful delivery of the Longonjo project. Bruni’s appointment and the successful testing of the transport logistics are important steps to pave the way for the main construction,” Pensana CEO Tim George said on June 13.

The accommodation facilities were supplied by South African company Bushtec, specialists in global turnkey deployable mining camps. 

The facilities include accommodation, dining and a communications hub, all of which were designed to international standards to provide a comfortable and safe working environment for employees and contractors. 

Progress continues at the site with the establishment of the contractor’s 4.3 ha lay-down area located to the south of the main construction area.

The team has also continued further enhancements to the site road network and service utilities. The primary access road has been complemented with the installation of concrete stormwater drains essential to ensure continued operation during the rainy season.
