231115002479 - Environmental Clearance Certificate for the Operation of the Existing Consumer Installations at Grain Carriers in Windhoek, Khomas Region

Grain Carriers Namibia is a rapidly growing transport company in Namibia that offers product distribution services with the guarantee of efficient delivery at competitive rates to various destinations throughout Namibia and beyond. The company was formed through a partnership between Frans Indongo Group and Grain Carriers (South Africa) in 2014. Grain Carriers was established in South Africa in 1991 and has since grown into a formidable transport company in Southern Africa, beyond specialising in the grain industry. The organisation’s fleet consists of more than 150 of its own vehicles and 300 subcontractors’ vehicles. The support structure offered by the well-established South African operation renders a very unique competitive advantage to the Namibian operation. Grain Carriers purchases and stores the diesel on site for fueling their fleet of trucks and vehicles. Diesel is sourced from Engen Namibia (Pty) Ltd. ENGEN Namibia (Pty) Ltd is a leading marketer of liquid fuels and lubricants in the country and aims to ensure that all their clients and facilities are compliant with the relevant environmental and industry legislation. It is against this background that Engen has appointed Environam Consultants Trading (ETC) to apply for an Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) for this site on their behalf. The existing Engen installations have a valid Petroleum Consumer License approved by the Ministry of Mines and Energy. The site operations and installation are in accordance with Engen Namibia (Pty) Ltd policies and regulations. Diesel is stored in a 23 000L capacity above ground tank.
