Caption: Local engineering solutions organisation, SureGO!, will be displaying one of their first-ever,  uniquely built, flexible walkway bridges at one of the world’s largest mining and industrial exhibitions, Electra Mining Africa. Electra Mining Africa 2016 will be taking place from 12 to 16 September 2016 at the Expo Centre Nasrec in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

“We are thrilled to display this exciting and unique innovation at the exhibition. Attendees will see the world’s first safe and floating bridge prototype that was designed and tested at the harbour mouth in Richards Bay in 2014. The flexible and floating bridge was put to test for two months to see if it can endure strong storms and adjust to the ever-changing tides,” says Tex Neveling, owner of SureGO!

Neveling patented the flexible bridge solution in 2010 and SureGO! is now safely bridging the gaps in the industry. SureGO! specialises in three types of bridges, namely: SureGO! Walk, SureGO! Drive and SureGO! Utility.

“What makes our bridges unique is that they provide the ideal solution to safely move from point A to point B, be it through walking or driving, over shifting surfaces. Our bridges prove to be a safe passage in areas with fluctuating currents, tides or water levels as well as in swamp and marsh areas with sludge and sand. SureGO! designed bridges change position and adapt according to the ever-changing environment, while ensuring continuous flooring and hand rail protection,” adds Neveling.

The world-class event, Electra Mining Africa, started 44 years ago and is ranked among the top mining shows in the world. Once again, this year’s five-day exhibition promises to showcase premier innovations and trends across the mining, construction, industrial, power generation and machine tools sectors. Annually, the Electra Mining Africa welcomes over 40,000 visitors.

At the event, SureGO! will showcase a model of their flexible walkway bridge. “We invite members of the public to attend the Electra Mining Africa event and visit the SureGO! stand. Attendees will be allowed to walk on the bridge and take a closer look at the intricacies of this unique invention,” concludes Neveling.
