SMW Group Ultrahaul trays headed to Bravus's Carmichael mine
Bravus Mining & Resources has awarded contracts worth more than $3 million to Rockhampton based SMW Group for a series of new Ultrahaul mine truck trays and a bore field maintenance program.
Bravus Mining & Resources CEO David Boshoff said Bravus was keen to capitalise on SMW Group’s 20 years of experience servicing central Queensland’s coal fields.
“There’s an extensive mining services knowledge base in our region, and it has always been our intention to use this and work with businesses based in central Queensland wherever possible,” Mr Boshoff said.
“The Ultrahaul tray is a class-leading product for mine haul trucks that SMW Group has developed specifically for the central Queensland coal industry. The trays are tailored for our fleet of CAT796AC haul trucks and will help to maximise production and improve operational efficiency.
“We have been impressed by SMW Group’s willingness to work with us to get the product right for our operations and look forward to seeing the results of this relationship over time.”
SMW Group Chief Operating Officer Frank Humphreys said that the contract was a great result for the company and central Queensland manufacturing.
“Securing a contract to supply Ultrahaul trays to the Carmichael Project is a great outcome for SMW Group and is a vote of confidence for central Queensland’s mining services industry,” Mr Humphreys said.
