When one thinks of Namibia one hardly conjures up images of heavy industry, but rather vast expanses of nothingness. The country is, however, a place of surprises. Just south of the Etosha National Park lies the small town of Otavi where a rebar manufacturing plant is planned.

Lithon Project Consultants (Lithon) (Pty) Ltd was commissioned by Otavi Rebar Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd in 2013 to undertake a Bankable Feasibility Study that complies with World Bank standards, for the construction of a 150 000 ton per year rebar manufacturing plant.

Internal and external stakeholders contributing to the study are diverse and range from the Town Council, Ministries, environmental interest groups and local communities.
