Tacmin Madini’s core expertise, backed by three decades of CONSTRUCTION, EPCM and PMC experience, has built an impressive portfolio of resolving tough challenges on remote hard rock open-pit mines and projects across Africa. Based on these experiences, we know what works and what does not work.

Through a strategic partnership, Questek and Tacmin Madini have joined their capabilities to offer our mining Clients a first of its kind comprising state-of-the-art audio visual solutions and eco-drive platforms which, when further enhanced by Tacmin’s comprehensive operational improvement processes, raises the bar on open-pit mine optimisation to new limits.


From focusing on fleet efficiency; mechanical and predictive diagnostics; safety and driver technical skills analysis to integration, design and installation of innovative on-mine state-of-the-art audio visual control rooms, Tacmin Madini:


▫     Guarantees utmost mine plan, production schedule and budget conformance,

▫     Realises cost savings through minimising downtime and optimal equipment performance;

▫     Improves safety through real-time feedback alerting drivers and operators to their driving behaviour. 

The tough economic environment demands a relentless focus on the smooth running of mining businesses and operational excellence has become a key source of competitive advantage for many businesses.


Demand volatility, depressed commodity prices and the divergence between rapid-growth and developed markets require a high degree of flexibility, agility and efficiency from corporate operations.


At Tacmin we know what these challenges are. Rising from 20 years of operations improvement assignments, Tacmin’s core expertise cultivated the processes followed and captured on the key drivers applied and successes achieved during turnaround assignments, to develop a service that supports CEOs and Boards.


Construction management contracting is a viable alternative to the more traditional contracting arrangements which are perceived by many as adversarial.


Construction Manager (CM) at Risk is a type of project delivery method where the CM is also the Constructor and the CM will have a direct contractual relationship with the Owner.


During the construction phase, the CM will either self-perform the work, sub-contract the work to various specialty firms or will do a combination of both. The Contract will require the CM to contract directly with such subcontractors as may be necessary for construction or supply of various elements of the project.

Our company delivers solutions that drive business results every minute!


Bridging the gap between mine plan and production schedule conformance whilst optimising equipment performance, reducing maintenance costs and simultaneously improve safety by means of tracking driver and operating behaviour enabling you to implement training and driver skill upgrading strategies
