Glencore awards three-year Newlands contract extension to Bis

Bis has retained a contract to provide load and haul services for Glencore at the Newlands coal mine in the Bowen Basin, Queensland.

The contract will see Bis extend its longstanding partnership with Glencore to support the Newlands operations until 2021.

It also aligns Bis’ optimised high payload dual-powered road train technology to Glencore’s production requirements.

Bis has provided a range of load and haul, underground equipment hire and site services to support the Newlands mine for the past 22 years.

Glencore operations manager – Newlands, Paul Sear, said, “Bis’ strong commitment to delivering safe and innovative solutions that add value to our operation has been recognised in this contract renewal.”

Bis chief executive officer Brad Rogers said the company’s ability to move bulk commodities in smarter, safer and more reliable ways continued to drive efficiencies.

“We look forward to continuing to deliver at this quality operation, and to continuing our valued partnership with Glencore Australia,” Rogers said.
