Our success with technically challenging mining projects sets us apart for clients – a distinction achieved through engineering excellence, innovation and the support of our world-class project management systems.

In 1999 DRA developed a unique capability in the design of winder systems and ever since, our electrical and mechanical winder engineers develop design frameworks and establish operating specifications. Together with industry specialists we construct new winders, refurbish existing winders and manage winder/shaft installations on behalf of our clients.

As an extension of our service, we source new and used winders required for the development of new shafts or the upgrade of existing infrastructures. Through the technical training we provide to maintenance personnel, clients benefit from upskilled employees and reduce their reliance on outsourced winder maintenance services.
