​​​UCM member, Riaan Combrinck, and 10 undergraduate Civil Engineering students from Stellenbosch University, visited industry partner PPC at their De Hoek cement plant near Piketberg. The visit started with a presentation to give an overview of both PPC as well as the De Hoek plant. This was followed by a 3 hour guided tour of the plant, including the limestone mining area as well as the production, storage, packing, sales and laboratory areas.  The tour ended with a great lunch before heading back to Stellenbosch. A big thank you to PPC De Hoek for being a tremendous host and for creating a truly memorable visit.
