Swift bolsters resources sector contract portfolio

Western Areas' Forrestania site.

Communications provider Swift Networks has won multiple extensions, expansions and new contracts covering several sites in the resources industry.

The company has expanded its contract with Compass Group to provide in-room services to Gateway Village in Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The extension expands Swift’s coverage by an additional 442 rooms over the initially contracted 800 rooms.

Swift has expanded its contract, originally signed in 2014, to provide in-room digital services to the 465-bed accommodation village at Western Areas’ Forrestania nickel project in Western Australia.

The company has also extended its long-standing support of a Tier 1 liquefied natural gas (LNG) operator in Western Australia through its reseller partner, DXC, boosting an existing contract to provide in-room digital services to an additional 280 rooms.

Swift is optimistic about the growth prospects in the resources industry after a strong 2018.

According to Swift, the company delivered consistent growth in the resources market last year, both through contract wins and new clients secured by its network of reseller partners.

“The company continues to view resources as an attractive growth opportunity in light of the significant pipeline of new mining exploration, construction and development projects currently under way throughout Australia,” Swift said in a statement.
