Leading engineering services company, ELB Engineering Services (Pty) Ltd, on Thursday announced that it has been contracted by Transnet Capital Projects for the refurbishment of Tippler A and B at the Transnet Port Elizabeth Manganese Terminal.

"ELB’s scope of work will include design, supply of new components, stripping, refurbishment of the tippler including mechanicals, structural and electricals and the installation of the two 1964 Strachan and Henshaw tipplers," the company said in a statement.
