Minetec has been awarded a contract to supply BHP’s Olympic Dam mine in South Australia with an underground fleet management system.
The contact has an estimated value of $9.5 million, with the funds to be split between the 2018 and 2019 financial years.
Minetec’s fleet management system will include proximity detection, tracking and task management capabilities.
“This important milestone validates the competitive position of Minetec’s proprietary mine management solution, developed by Minetec since its acquisition by Codan in 2012,” the company said in an ASX announcement.
Minetec provides high-precision tracking, productivity and safety solutions for underground hard rock mines.
