Hexagon’s Mining division today announced that it’s partnering with FluidIntel, a market-leader in fuel management systems and solutions. The Australia-based company has been supplying innovative fuel management hardware and software to the mining industry since 1996. Its fuel management system, AdaptFMS, handles more than 3.5 billion litres of fuel and other hydrocarbons annually for six of the world’s biggest mining companies.
Integration with Hexagon’s broad portfolio of mining solutions is a priority, said Josh Weiss, President of Hexagon’s Mining division. “Fuel costs are a significant expense for mines and diesel rail networks – up to 40% of operating expenditures,“ said Weiss. “For years, FluidIntel’s best-practice fuel management has been generating millions of dollars in savings through cost reduction and productivity improvements. The potential for return on investment is significant so this is great news for our customers. We’re excited about the possibilities. We’ve identified numerous areas for integration with our own fleet management and enterprise solutions, and we’re confident of exploiting more synergies with our planning and safety portfolios. The partnership fills a technology gap and, with solutions from port to pit, FluidIntel complements our life of mine vision 100%!”
FluidIntel COO, Damir Hasagic said: “With some great integration ideas in progress between our system and various Hexagon applications, we are confident this partnership will produce excellent opportunities for Hexagon clients to better manage their fuel and lubricants. “This partnership provides FluidIntel with unprecedented market reach through Hexagon’s global mining footprint and their position of number-one OEM-independent vendor.”
