Howden Projects develops multi-million dollar turnkey solutions for industrial flue gas conditioning (including flue gas desulphurisation), melt-shop de-dusting, medical and industrial waste incineration, industrial furnaces, underground mine cooling, industrial cooling and refrigeration plants, waste water treatment and electrical and electronic control systems.

Howden Projects is assisting heavy manufacturing industries to meet their emissions obligations cost effectively, and mining houses to address their underground mine cooling challenges.

Power market

We provide fabric filter plant (FFP), flue gas conditioning plant (FGC), flue gas desulphurisation (FGD), precipitator upgrade technology, environmental management services and various other emissions control technologies in addition to furnaces, burners, incinerators and electrical control and instrumentation.

We have built many of the largest FFP reference plants for the power generation industry in Southern Africa since 1992, with capacities ranging from 50MW units to 670MW.  This includes the world’s biggest fabric filter plant installation at Eskom’s Majuba Power Station in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

Mining Market
South Africa has some of the world’s deepest mines that can no longer be cooled using conventional cooling technologies due to the high rock temperatures experienced in ultra-deep mines. To meet stringent safety and energy-saving requirements, we have designed, constructed and commissioned a number of chiller and ice storage plants for South Africa’s gold and platinum mines with capacities ranging from 5MWR to 12MWR of cooling. In order to optimise energy efficiency for ultra-deep mine cooling, we have also developed designs for hard-Ice plants capable of delivering in excess of 100 tons of hard ice per hour underground to generate over 12MW of cooling from melting hard ice.

Industrial Market
Our expertise includes designing and constructing wet scrubbing systems for mineral processing & industrial boiler plants, high-pressure pulse-jet filtration plants for melt-shop de-dusting,  refrigeration & gas compression systems, waste water treatment systems, industrial waste & medical waste incinerators and industrial heat-treatment plants.


Among the services we offer are:

  • front-end engineering
  • application engineering
  • environmental risk analysis
  • turnkey project management
  • maintenance management
  • comprehensive after sales service


We do feasibility studies for plant operators to identify the most applicable emission control technologies.  We then can make proposals and carry out the project on a turnkey basis.

We offer long term service contracts for taking care of customers’ plant and provide spare parts

The technology we offer is supported by our own rigorous research and development, backed up by Eskom’s TRI, the Polymer Research Institute in Stellenbosch, suppliers of critical equipment and licensors.

Our business operations are certified to ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System); BS OHSAS 18001:2007 (Health & Safety Management System) and BS EN ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management System). Our SHEQ management systems are constantly reviewed to ensure continuous compliance of our operations to the stringent certification requirements.

We enjoy a healthy relationship with all our customers and believe in an open, honest and uncomplicated way of conducting business.  We believe in what we do and our ambition is to satisfy our client’s gas cleaning needs.

We have a comprehensive suite of technologies and capabilities to develop turnkey solutions and the capacity to manage the projects to commissioning stage. Our Aftermarket department is available to support our customers post installation to ensure that the commissioned plant continues to operate optimally and deliver full benefits to the customer. Our operations are structured to provide customers with technical and operational support over the life of the plant.
