SADA Group’s coal operations history.

SADA has successfully owned and operated, and contract operated, numerous processing plants over the past 30 years.

We specialise in the design, installation and operation of modular coal preparation plants which utilise the latest technology to increase the coal yield, quality and financial return for our clients.

Our extensive technical expertise in preparation plant technology also makes SADA a valuable resource for the upgrade of existing facilities to increase their efficiency.

From assisting in feasibility studies at greenfield sites, through tailored design of coal preparation plants for specific site needs, to highly skilled site operation and transport to port, SADA Group offers end-to-end capabilities that put us at the forefront of  service provision to the coal industry.
