The Maswi Drilling Company Limited has signed a contract with a Canadian firm called Scintrex for technical training that would upgrade the company’s services into international standards.

Now operating nationwide, the firm’s technical empowerment drive, aims to fast-track its endeavours to penetrate new markets in Malawi, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and Burundi.

The company’s finance and administrative manager, Mr Michael Maungo, revealed this yesterday before a press conference held at the New Mwanza Hotel. He said his company has already paid the Canadian firm $10,000 (about Sh15 million) to bring an expert for training its employees in a project slated to start in January 2013.

“The company has recently bought four sets of ultramodern rigging equipment to facilitate its international market takeover,” he said.

He named some of the equipment as Super Rock 1000 and Super Rock 5000 as well as four compressors, all capable of drilling boreholes 50 to 200 metres deep.
