Ensight and Anglo American Platinum’s Smelters partnered in an Energy Leadership Program during June 2015. This ELP focused on the smelters located in Rustenburg, Northam and Polokwane, as well as the Converter plant which is also located in Rustenburg. Our teams mobilised in June 2015 for the Rustenburg operations, whilst Mortimer and Polokwane smelters followed suit in January 2016.

Mandela Day is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy, it is a global movement to honour his life’s work and to change the world for the better. In keeping with this, three of our Ensight staff members, Monica, Verena and Ntombi joined the Richards Bay Minerals team on 18th July to visit Sitholinhlanhla Primary to donate books and read to the students.
