Due to our industry leading engineering and design capabilities in power generation, transmission and distribution, we routinely provide clients with conventional and renewable energy solutions. Our 30 years’ experience has strengthened our knowledge of power systems and today, we are well positioned to develop and deliver power generation plants for clients.
Our passion for developing innovative solutions allows us to assess and determine the most viable energy sources in collaboration with, or on behalf of, our clients. Solutions vary in size and type, from hydropower in the DRC to diesel generation in Ghana, but regardless of scope, clients routinely call on us for practical advice across a wide range of industries. Through our long-standing relationships with independent power producers (IPPs) and financial organizations we offer our clients a comprehensive and integrated solution.
Our customized, end-to-end services include:
We offer clients solutions that break the barriers of convention, while we are well-equipped to deliver conventional energy solutions including diesel, heavy fuel oil (HFO), and liquefied natural gas (LNG), we choose to add value through our innovative delivery methods.
In understanding new and improved methods of delivering power we are able to meet client needs through practical business solutions that offer high return on investment. We encourage the shift towards more sustainable forms of energy to act as a vehicle for positive environmental change on behalf of our clients.
Our capabilities are underpinned by our deep sector knowledge and specialist teams. We draw on our vast experience to deliver complete hydropower plant solutions ranging from less than 1 MW to over 30 MW. Our capabilities have been earned through flawless execution of projects in North America, Africa, Asia and Australia, delivered on time and within budget and in the most complex, remote and challenging environments.
Through our integrated smart partnership networks we provide clients with full project lifecycle solutions including:
We have the capability and proven record to deliver both solar thermal and solar electric power solutions, those that improve productivity and enhance client value. Our projects provide energy savings and reduce OPEX and our integrated approach maximize ROI for clients by increasing efficiencies and lifespan of existing power systems. Our team of professionals are familiar with the various available storage solutions and closely follow global techno-commercial developments.

Our deep rooted partnership networks facilitate the delivery of full project lifecycle solutions including:
We have grown an extensive and integrated network which enables us to assist developers, and their clients, by evaluating wind energy opportunities, navigating regulatory environments and implementing wind energy strategies that meet their needs.
Our full project management and engineering complement deliver wind power projects and provide clients full project lifecycle solutions including:
Through our subsidiary, PGBI, DRA has over 30 years’ experience in agricultural bio-energy solutions. Throughout the years we have gained expert knowledge in anaerobic digestion of downstream agricultural waste streams to produce biogas for power generation and heating solutions. Our team of acclaimed technologists provide clients with a holistic approach to bio-energy, waste and environmental requirements to develop solutions that optimize client’s social, environmental and financial return on investment.
Our expertise includes:
Our clients call on us to provide a full range of transmission and distribution services for the whole life cycle of a project. We have the knowledge to deliver against the full spectrum of a project; we develop solutions to meet basic and complex configurations, from inception through to the close-out stage. We provide clients with the following key services:
Mimosa Mine 132kV power supply
Client: Impala Platinum Mine
We managed the design, construction and commissioning of 18km 132kV overhead line including "Feed-in/Feed-out" and 132/11kV substations to feed Mimosa Platinum Mine Phase 2 expansion in Zimbabwe.
Ngezi Platinum Mine 132kV Power Supply
Our team of professionals managed the design, construction and commissioning of 75km 132kV monopole overhead line including 132/11kV substation to supply power to the new Ngezi Platinum Mine in Zimbabwe. Initially the line was to be operated at 88kV pending the construction of a new 330/132kV Selous Substation. Once Selous substation was commissioned the supply to Ngezi Mine was to be upgraded to 132kV.
Kibali Gold Mine Hydropower Scheme
Client: Randgold Resources
In northeast DRC, we expertly managed the design, construction and commissioning of 22MW Nzorro 2 and 10MW Amboro Hydro Power Stations for Kibali Gold Mine. The two hydro stations feed the Mine via two 66kV overhead lines some 32km and 10km in length respectively. The two stations supplement 36 x 1.5kVA diesel generators to supply the Mine load
