Sasol award for Actom Turbo Machines

First Quarter 2020 News & events

Petrochemical giant Sasol has recognised Actom Turbo Machines with one of its top 2019 awards for exceptional service in repair, refurbishment and ongoing maintenance. Actom Turbo Machines is the only large non-OEM business in its service category to win the award to date. Sasol is very OEM-reliant in terms of service backup and parts supply, according to Anton Hamman, Sasol’s principal specialist sourcing mechanical equipment. Actom Turbo Machines has proved itself in service provision for turbo machines, where critical and complex skills are required.

“We view turbo machines as the heart of our operations, so it is absolutely essential that the service provider has all the critical skills needed to ensure that the equipment is maintained to OEM specification,” Hamman says. “If you use a non-OEM company for this work, you must be certain they have the required skills and competencies to perform this work to the correct standard every time and understand the associated risks.

“This award signifies recognition of the highest order, which we greatly value and cherish,” he says. “It marks an important milestone for us in our ongoing drive to provide the best possible service to industry.”
