Industrea has announced its wholly-owned subsidiary Advanced Mining Technologies (AMT) had been awarded a major contract in South America by mining company Anglo American Chile, a member of the Anglo American Group.
The contract follows Industrea opening an office in Chile in recognition of the good opportunities provided by the South American market.
Industrea will supply and co-ordinate installation of the CAS-CAM/RF collision avoidance technology for Anglo American Chile to be used in its mobile equipment fleet at El Soldado Mine, Los Bronces Mine, Monto Blancos Mine, and Mantoverde Mine.
Robin Levison, managing director and chief executive officer, said Anglo American Chile was the new company to install AMT’s collision avoidance technology, with others including Anglo Coal Australia and BMA in the Bowen Basin, Queensland and the Hunter Valley, NSW.
The AMT collision avoidance system has been operating at Anglo Coal’s Collahuasi Mine in Chile since 2003, with AMT providing local sales and service support for CAS-CAM/RF in Chile through its authorised agent Fasser Ltda via Industrea de Chile SA.
