G & G Mining Fabrication, manufacture assorted ancillary mobile equipment for the mining industry. We wanted a specific design that could be used in the manufacturing of our water tank modules. The design had to be such, that it would add strength to the tanks, without adding to much weight therefore increasing its life and maintaining tank and vehicle stability. Working closely with Jurrien and his team we have successfully achieved this.

Richard Ladny G & G Mining Fabrication

We had a number of structural design problems with a small crushing and screening plant, these problems did not become apparent until after installation (was not designed by Deacon). Given that the structure was already installed, the solution had to be provided in a timely and cost effective manner and be retrofit-able to the existing structure. These type problems, and our constrains presented obvious challenges. Deacon Engineers were able to provide solutions that meet our requirements.

We have a long working relationship with Deacon, this gives us the confidence that they could provide what we requested. They also use the latest design tools that allow for changes to be easily made and reviewed.

Deacon was able to react quickly, travel to site when needed and provide solutions that meet our requirements, they also listen to our concerns and are open to suggestions.

Thank you to your engineers for your assistance in upgrading our transportable site water storage tanks. The system evolved over a few years to assist many home builders complete their house construction without a water supply. One problem has been that our site tank can’t contain all the water that the water tanker brings to site. Deacon Engineers have redesigned the transportable tank stand to carry a new style 15,000 Ltr water site tank. We road tested it yesterday & are most impressed, although it is 4 M tall it tows very well.
