In technical writing, I write reports that are comprehensive and useful to superiors and the company. I cone to you with a track record of successfully using computer software and hand tools to repair, maintain and inspect plant equipment to ensure a smooth running of the plant and high plant availability. I am an all rounder with practical experience in plant hydraulics and pneumatics, boiler and tribune house maintenance, mining and crushing equipment maintenance, mineral processing equipment maintenance, water treatment and sewer plant maintenance and I am quick to learn equipment I have never been exposed to. I have the capacity to budget, develop and implement a policy or strategy. I am a self-motivated, multi-skilled individual and result oriented individual with a zeal to learn, tackle challenges and improve whichever system I work with. I want to develop a career both challenging and rewarding. I am well versed with safety and environmental issues relating to the industry.
