Engineering & Project Management

The Major engineering and project management team maintain a focus on providing world competitive technology, to implement total engineering solutions for small and large projects. Our expertise is most relevant for companies within the Metals Processing, Minerals Processing and Petrochemical Industries. We have an extensive portfolio of reference plants and processes.


For the majority of projects, our conceptual and process engineering is provided in-house, when required we draw upon our licensors and other technology suppliers to incorporate their specialised expertise.

Irrespective of the source of the concept engineering, it is usual for Major to supply detail engineering, specifications and shop drawings to cater for the specific client needs.

Project engineering, by its nature, is totally dependent upon the creativity of its employees, and Major is proud of the skill and experience of its engineers and technologists, including mechanical, chemical, electrical engineers, CAD draftsmen and support staff.
