Mining products and services provider Industrea Limited has announced that subsidiary Huddy’s Mining Services has signed two additional agreements with Warkworth Mining for the hire, service and support of further equipment for its Mt Thorley Warkworth mine in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales.
According to the company, it would now provide 17 items of heavy mining equipment at the Mt Thorley Warkworth mine, comprising seven vehicles redeployed from Huddy’s operations in Mt Isa and 10 new vehicles.
These latest agreements lift the overall revenue from Huddy’s fleet used at Rio Tinto’s Mt Thorley Warkworth mine to approximately $3 – $3.5 million per month once all equipment is mobilised, according to the company.
The new service and maintenance requirements under these contracts will require an increase in the number of Huddy’s employees in the Hunter Valley.
Industrea recently expanded its Hunter Valley manufacturing base with the acquisition of metal fabrication business Kade Engineering, based in Gloucester, and the relocation of Industrea Mining Equipment to new premises in Thornton tripling the manufacturing capacity of its underground and open cut mining productivity and safety equipment.
Huddy’s also won a $30 million per annum Cockatoo Coal contract in July.
