Roland Ramphal has been appointed by civil engineering and infrastructure specialist Barhale as commercial director
Roland Ramphal is moving from South Africa to take up the position after four years as group commercial director with construction to mining group Teichmann where he operated across the African continent.
A graduate in building management and quantity surveying from the Durban Institute of Technology, Ramphal brings more than 20 years’ experience in civil engineering.
Chief executive Matthew Behan said: “Roland will be working with our delivery teams to develop and implement our commercial strategy.
“His skills in business expansion, commercial strategy and dispute avoidance and resolution have delivered a proven track record of business growth.”
Roland Ramphal will take over from Jon Brett who is retiring from the business after 19 years.
Barhale was awarded the contract for the design, supply, construction and commissioning of sewer diversion works in the construction of the replacement Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) in Edmonton.
When fully operational, the 78MWe facility which represents the most environmental and cost-effective solution for managing north London’s waste is expected to process up to 700,000 tonnes of waste per year. It will provide enough power for up to 127,000 homes and enable heat to be supplied locally.
The sewer diversion works include, tunnelling works for the installation of a 1200mm diameter sewer along a stretch of approximately 115m to divert the Chingford sewer and the installation of a 1200mm diameter sewer along a stretch of approximately 165m to divert the Angel sewer, installation of drive shafts at the confluence of the two sewers, installation of reception shafts and connection of the new sewers to the existing network.
