Translogik is pleased to announce that it has won another contract through its Australian partner, Brownfield Engineering & Maintenance PTY LTD (“Brownfield”).
The agreement is to supply 47 iTrack mining tyre monitoring systems for large haul trucks to the Saraji coal mine in the Bowen Basin, Queensland, owned by the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA). The contract includes the sale of equipment on a finance lease. In addition to the sale there will be income from service and rental for a minimum period of two years.
Laren Yeomans, CEO of Translogik said “This is another significant contract win for Translogik’s iTrack system in quick succession, after other recent wins with Glencore in Australia, and BHP in Chile. The new strategy of offering a range of payment methods, including rental and finance lease, appears to have eased the barrier to large-scale adoption within the mining industry and we look forward to further agreements in due course.”
Darryl Crowder, Managing Director of Brownfield said “The important role of tyre monitoring as part of a total safety and performance monitoring strategy within the mining sector is an increasingly major focus in Australia. We have received significant interest in the iTrack system due to its accuracy and ease of use compared to competing systems, and I am confident that this high level of enquiries will translate into further uptake.”
