Opportunity exists for composites manufacturers to express interest in the supply of toilets for passenger trains.
Interest must be expressed before Friday 17 November by sending an email to Andy Radford.
Attached is a picture of the toilet unit (module) currently imported from Denmark. The intention is to procure as simpler design of this locally for customers who wish to retain vacuum-on-demand systems.
The toilet contract will require a quantity of bowls of two variations, one with a 40mm outlet and another with 100mm outlet.
It is possible that industry has something similar for marine use that could be adapted.
We welcome Sabelo Sibanda and Thulisile Volwana who have joined the Cluster team in an official capacity.
Sabelo and Thulisile extend the reach of the Cluster and will be interacting with industry and particularly official cluster participants to assist in facilitating company benefits.
Both bring energy and innovation to the Cluster’s initiatives, having been instrumental in developing Africa’s first solar powered tablet PC in December of 2013.
“I believe the Cluster’s new staff have the skills set and approach to assist a fragmented composites industry, comprising highly advanced and emerging start-ups make gains through product development , market access and supplier development initiatives that are part of the Cluster’s services”, Cluster Director, Andy Radford said.
