Steady growth in most of its business units, combined with a concerted effort to improve its customer service resulted in Skyriders Access Specialists increasing its staff complement by 30% in 2016. The increase in workers is an indication of sustained growth at the rope-access specialist, which still derives 75% of its workload from the South African market. Electricity utility Eskom remains a major client, with Skyriders enjoying an ongoing scope of work at both Medupi and Kusile Power Stations, as well as at the Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme. Another major source of repeat work has been various projects for Sasol. The big challenge for the company in previous years was the quiet winter months, during which time there is little opportunity to undertake any regular maintenance work at the power utility. This trend was finally broken in 2016, with an extremely busy winter for all of its clients. Current services include non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection, concrete inspection, maintenance and repairs, application of coating systems, working-at-height safety systems, welding, and confined-space rescue and standby.
