Project GoCell, which was begun in mid-2012 and is being fast-tracked, will be largely completed by the middle of this year. It will cost $330-million, or about a fifth of the replacement cost of the Ngodwana mill, which is currently valued at $1.5-billion.
The project is employing about 2 000 people for about two years of construction. It is one of the few large engineering and building projects in South Africa at present. Most others are by Eskom.
