Otavi Steel Mill (Pty) Ltd (OSPML), a joint venture company formed among Groot Property Group (Pty) Ltd, SDS Group, and Andre Neethling Trust, is undertaking the construction of a steel mill in Namibia.

The project involves the construction of a steel mill. It includes the construction of a steel nano-mill, a production unit, a blast furnace, a coke oven, administrative rooms, loading and unloading platforms, and the installation of rolling mill, safety systems, heat treatment facility, continuous casting machines and ladle furnaces.

The steel nano-mill will have an annual production capacity of 300,000 tonnes of steel and the Otavi Steel mill will be able to produce 10 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). The two processes will be operated separately from each other as the nano-mill will be operated with scrap metal and the steel mill with iron ore that is melted.

Scorpion Mineral Processing was selected as engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contractor in the fourth quarter of 2011.

SMS Group and Danieli & C. Officine Meccaniche S.p.A. has been appointed to provide technology and equipment for the steel mill.

The Otavi Town Council withdrew from the partnership of the project.

The project is facing delay due to undisclosed issues.
