About Secunda

Secunda, Mpumalanga

 

(from Latin: second, secund, secundi meaning second/following) is a town built amidst the coalfields of theMpumalanga province of South Africa. It was named for being the second extraction refinery producing oil from coal, after Sasolburg, some 140 kilometres (87 mi) to the west..

Climate and setting

 

During the summer, Secunda has a very pleasant climate with an average temperature of 25.2°C. During the winter, the nights are cold, and frost regularly occurs. The days are dry, sunny and warm with an average day temperature of 16.2°C.

Secunda is situated on the latitude 26° and longitude 29° and is 1,620 meters above sea level. It is 180 kilometers from Pretoria, 135 kilometers from Johannesburg, 100 km from Brakpan and 250 km from Potchefstroom..

 

 

Natural resources

 

As coal is the main ingredient for the industrial process, Sasol Two had to be developed around a coal field. The five coal mines, namely Brandspruit, Middelbult, Bosjesspruit, Twistdraai and Syferfontein, form the largest underground coal mining complex in South Africa and annually supply approximately 37,3 million tons of coal to Sasol Synthetic Fuels.

Another important factor determining its location, was the availability of water. Water for Sasol is supplied from Grootdraai Dam near Standerton..

 

 

Early history

 

Secunda has the 1973 oil crisis to thank for its existence, as it was founded to make South Africa less dependent on the importation of crude oil. It is doubtful whether an industry such as Sasol Synfuels ever formed part of the plans when Sasol One was formed in the 1950s. Sasol Two (1980) and Sasol Three (1982), known as Secunda CTL, the largest coal liquefaction plant in the world, produces synthetic fueldiesel, and related fuels and petrochemicals from coal gasification. Sasol Synfuels (previously known as Sasol Two and Sasol Three) are large industrial refineries, within view, and sometimes earshot, of the town of Secunda.

After the site for the Sasol complex had been identified, it had to be decided whether or not to combine the existing towns of Evander and Trichardt. The huge burden that extensions of this nature would have had on the financial and administrative resources of the established communities as well as the tempo at which such development should proceed was decisive and resulted in the decision to develop Trichardt and Secunda to be one town, named Secunda. Evander however stayed a separate town..

 

 

 

Proclamation

 

During 1974 Sasol (Transvaal) Townships Limited, a subsidiary company of Sasol Limited, was instructed to establish and develop Secunda. On 28 June 1976, the first town area was proclaimed. The town already had a population of approximately seven thousand residents.

On 3 November 1975, the Health Committee of Secunda was established by means of an Administrative Proclamation, to carry out the functions for local government. At this time Secunda still had no residents. The original Committee consisted of five members. At that stage, the only official was Mr. JF Coertzen, whose job designation was Secretary. He commenced his duties on 1 May 1976 with is office in Pretoria, as the then Chairman of the Committee was stationed in Pretoria and no office accommodation was available in Secunda.

1976 saw the first resident of Secunda moving in. Mr Lool Odendaal moved into Tuyshuys, the original house of the farm Goede Hoop, on which Secunda was built.

On 1 December 1976, the Secretary moved to Secunda and occupied offices, consisting of two rooms in a house situated at No 4 Danie Theron Street. At this time about 150 families resided in Secunda, with more moving in daily..

 

 

 

First amenities

 

In February 1977 Secunda’s first library was opened, located in the kitchen, lounge and dining rooms of a house in Danie Theron Street. At this time a clinic service was also introduced, with personnel of the Transvaal Council for Non-Urban areas visiting Secunda twice a week. The clinic was located in the same house as the library. A permanent service with permanent personnel was established in 1978.

The Health Committee was later expanded to seven committee members, of whom six were appointed by the Administrator from a list of names submitted by Sasol, whilst the remaining member was appointed by the Administrator himself. Secunda acquired Town Council status on 5 November 1985.

Other important occasions were the opening of the Secunda Sports Stadium on 1 February 1986, as well as the opening and handing over of the Johannes Stegmann Theatre by Sasol Limited on 6 August 1986.

On 11 November 1987 an ultra modern library was opened. This library is known as the Jan Coertzen Public Library and has a reference, an adult, children’s and a music section as well as an auditorium with conference facilities.

In 1994 a community center was completed in Secunda. It was named after Rev. Casper Breedt..

 

 

 

 

Structures and buildings

 

Today distinctive features of the landscape around Secunda are the massive cooling towers, high chimneys and the steel constructions unique to the South-African oil-from-coal industry.

The highest structure in Secunda is the 301 metre high chimney at the Sasol Three plant. The chimney is an Eskom type chimney comprising four 301 metre high refractory brick lined concrete fluor of 4.6 metre diameter each. The windshield is 292 metres high with an internal diameter of 26 metres. The chimney was constructed by Concor and LTA as part of a contract to construct the Sasol Three steamplant with Hochtief. The foundations of the chimney comprised vertical and raked piles. This chimney is one of the tallest free-standing structures in the Southern Hemisphere.

One of the many refineries at the respective plants was the target of two attempted bombings by the African National Congress. The first, unsuccessful bombing occurred in 1980, and the second, partly successful bombing a few years later.Patrick Chamusso was wrongly accused of the first attempt, and as a result of his arrest and torture he became an ANCactivist and was instrumental in carrying out the second as part of the ANC's campaign of attacks on South African industrial facilities. This episode is recounted in the film Catch a Fire, released in 2006.

Secunda has several businesses, some private and other corporate which are highly successful. Among some are Game, Spar, Pick 'n Pay, Mr Price and Mr Price Home, along with many restaurants and fast food establishment. Several shopping centres boasts stores with great variety being offered in the town.

A mall was also opened in late 2013, adding to the entertainment value of the town. The mall hosts a very large Checkers and Game, a 3D cinema and many shops commonly found in a Gauteng mall.

A fitness centre owned by Sasol operates in the centre of the business district, but is open to the public.

It also has three high schools, two of them having started out with Afrikaans language education, namely High School Oosterland, and High School Secunda. The third, Highveld Park High School was founded with English as the central language of education. Now though, the two formerly mentioned also offer both languages in all offered subjects for education.

Secunda is also considered the "host town" of a casino called "Graceland", a building based on the times of Elvis' American culture. The casino boasts an impressive golf course, hotel, conference rooms, restaurants, gambling, slot machines, go-karts, and entertainment for children in the form of a small arcade room. The relatively new Waterfront next to the sports stadium also has some entertainment for young adults, with a bowling alley, an indoor cricket centre, and plenty of idyllic restaurants with patios leading up to the water..
