Dingo, a leader in predictive maintenance software, has announced a global partnership with Newmont Corporation, the world’s leading gold mining organisation.

The agreement will enable Newmont to accelerate the implementation of its remote asset health monitoring support model, delivering advanced predictive maintenance driven insights to the company’s operations around the globe.

Digitalisation is driving organisations to transform their physical operations and processes with technology. Asset-intensive organisations like mining need to garner insights from the vast array of data available in the connected world.

For maintenance, this means understanding how an asset performs, predicting impending issues, and performing corrective maintenance at the optimal time.

The global partnership further cements a longstanding relationship that has delivered significant benefits by improving asset health and availability, reducing risk and reducing costs by extending the life of components.

Newmont will expand the use of Dingo’s Trakka maintenance software and services to manage the workflow generated from Newmont’s operations support hubs in Perth, Western Australia, and Denver, Colorado, providing continuous support to seven connected sites and hundreds of users.

“With Dingo’s Trakka platform, Newmont will have a single source of truth to inform its predictive maintenance programs across the entire organisation,” Newmont senior director Operations Support Hubs Jason Hill said.

Newmont’s asset health analysts use Trakka to view and analyse condition monitoring data from various sources, including onboard machine health data, operational data, fluid analysis, visual inspections and work history.

This predictive analysis helps identify the corrective actions required to keep equipment running in optimal condition, and the recommendations flow directly into Newmont’s work management process through an ERP integration.

“Trakka will enable our people to tap into the power of data to drive continuous improvements,” Hill said.

“The common platform allows us to identify best practices and detect emerging issues.  Taking the appropriate action, in either case, is critical to continuously improving our business.

“We are excited about the benefits of this global partnership for our teams and customers. We look forward to working closely with Dingo to transform how we approach maintenance in support of maximising production at the lowest possible cost.”

By utilising the Dingo Trakka system, Newmont will streamline and standardise its predictive maintenance processes, tools and services worldwide.

This centralised view will accelerate the adoption of consistent maintenance strategies, helping reduce costs and mitigate risk, while creating safer working conditions.

“We’re proud to expand our longstanding relationship with Newmont,” Dingo executive chairman Paul Higgins said.

“Our software, coupled with our services, provide its global operations with increased visibility into the health and performance of equipment, which helps Newmont identify opportunities for continuous improvement and increase operational efficiency systemwide.”
