BelServest has partnered with Servest Camp Management Services, a highly experienced provider of camp management services for mining, construction and energy projects in southern Africa. The company said it was proud to have been awarded a three year contract by Debswana for their Jwaneng Diamond Mine Camp.
The company specialises in remote site projects providing a camp or village which really has to be a home away from home. The underlining philosophy is that every person who lives in these villages should be at home there. This guides the creation of comfortable and homely environments to which people are happy to return after a hard day’s work.
BelServest will employ around 180 personnel, and with a future planned camp upgrade and expansion project, it is anticipated that this will grow to around 210 personnel within the next 18 months.
A comprehensive project to upgrade the accommodation, and dining, kitchen and recreation facilities of the Jwaneng Mine residents ‘village started in November 2016 and will be completed by August 2019.
BelServest employs one expatriate regional manager responsible for the area, and the balance of personnel are all Motswana nationals. The camp has been operated for the past 4 1/2 years under the Servest Botswana banner and now under BelServest.
