SAFETY, SECURITY OF SUPPLY, QUALITY OF PRODUCT

Since our first contract award in 2010, ZEN has been delivering fuel to leading mine sites in Ghana, and now within the whole of West Africa.

The leading supplier to the mines in Ghana

Within 8 years ZEN has become the leading fuel supplier to the mines in Ghana, investing in a secure, safe and reliable supply chain, ensuring on spec, on demand supplies to its customers. It’s successful model has seen ZEN expand into Mali, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast to become one of the leading suppliers to the mines in West Africa.

From day one ZEN understood the critical importance of the fuel supply chain and its impact on mining operations. For this reason ZEN has made considerable investments where possible in storage and transport facilities, and developed different modular options for fuel storage installations. As well as arranging fuel deliveries, ZEN also performs consignment stock delivery services, and full fuel depot management on site as and when required, and different training and safety programs for discharge and handling of fuel.

SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT

ZEN has committed to significant investments for its mining customers including the construction and management of fuel depots at key sites. Such investments include a 250,000 litre depot in Nzema, a 500,000 litre depot in Ayanfuri, an 800,000 litre depot in Manso Nkran, a 1 million litre depot in Yanfolilia Mali, and a 4.8 million litre depot in Tarkwa to be commissioned in Q3 2018.

ZEN has also committed to delivering low sulphur diesel with a maximum 50 ppm to the mines and was the first to deliver 38 ppm low sulphur diesel in Ghana, consistently exceeding the minimum regulatory requirements in Ghana.

ZEN started blending it’s own branded lubricants with key partner Oryx Energies from a blending plant in Togo that was commissioned in 2010, and with a blending capacity including Engine Oils, Transmission Oils, Hydraulic Oils, Gear Oils and Synthetic Oils in various pack sizes.
