INFORMATION systems and mining services provider QMASTOR has announced a contract with Rio Tinto Australia for the provision of its Pit to Port.net and SMS3D.net systems.
The systems will be installed throughout Rio Tinto’s coal operations in Australia and is the largest contract secured to date by QMASTOR, expected to be in excess of $2.6 million spread over three years.
QMASTOR will provide Rio Tinto with end-to-end supply chain, quality management and logistic solutions for their Queensland coal operations and four operations in New South Wales.
“This contract follows similar implementations in other large resource companies such as BHP Billiton, OneSteel and Anglo Coal,” QMASTOR managing director Trent Bagnall said.
Installation of the Rio Tinto contract will commence in the current financial year.
“The implementation of this contract means QMASTOR will now manage over 270 million tonnes of global bulk commodity movements per annum in coal, iron ore, bauxite and nickel,” Bagnall said.
