From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report.
The city of Durban is the latest location for global temporary power and temperature control company Aggreko, which recently opened a depot there. Christy van der Merwe was at the opening ceremony of the facility.

Christy van der Merwe:
This is the second depot to be built in South Africa in the last 18 months, and during this time Aggreko has invested some R87-million into local operations.
And there is more to come….

Other news making headlines this week includes the opening of Basil Read’s new turnkey projects division; commercial and industrial properties could be headed for a boom; and Safcec sees early signs of civil engineering recovery.

Basil Read says that it’s created a fifth division within the JSE-listed construction and engineering group, called Basil Read Turnkey Projects.

South Africa’s commercial and industrial property sector might be set for a price boom by 2014/15, if the country is able to maintain sustainable growth over this period, industry experts said at the launch of the Rode property report.

Trends in South Africa’s embattled civil engineering industry are showing definite, albeit modest, signs of recovery, says South African Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors economist Henk Langenhoven.
