Swift Networks has won multiple contracts to provide its suite of entertainment and connectivity services to new and existing resources industry sites across Australia.

The contracts, with NT Link, Iluka Resources, Tronox Management, AngloGold Ashanti and Ausco Modular, mean Swift will provide its services to 1336 new rooms.

NT Link has awarded Swift a contract to provide its services to four 140-room camps at the Northern Gas Pipeline project in the Northern Territory. The contract marks the fourth project where NT Link has chosen Swift.

Iluka and Tronox have chosen Swift to provide its services to 416 rooms across two camps at Cataby in Western Australia.

Swift will complete onsite infrastructure works and deploy its communications and digital entertainment solution to Iluka and Tronox.

AngloGold is expanding its relationship with Swift with the award of a 12-month extension for 662 rooms at the Tropicana operation in Western Australia. The Tropicana contract includes 160 additional rooms.

Ausco has engaged Swift to refit a 200-room fly camp to increase the standard of services to match those provided by Swift at the adjacent 500-room Amrun village construction camp in North Queensland.

Swift previously deployed its services for Ausco at the Rio Tinto bauxite project last year.

Xavier Kris, Swift chief executive officer, said 93 per cent of the customers signed by the company since its inception in 2008 remained with the business today.

“These new contracts showcase the ‘best in class’ nature of the Swift solution in the resources market,” Kris said.
