H-E Parts says it has been awarded a one-year supply agreement from Glencore that will see the company supply and overhaul new and service exchange radiators on mobile equipment fleets across 24 coal mines in Australia.
The contract with Glencore Coal Assets Australia has the provision for a further 12-month extension based on performance and includes all ancillary mining equipment, as well as prime production mining truck, excavator and drill rig fleets.
The contract will be managed by H-E Parts’ Mining Solutions Cooling Division branches and incorporates various styles of independent radiators and complete modular nose cones, including the radiator, fan and motor and charge air cooler as a complete assembly, according to the company.
H-E Parts says: “The complete range of COR Cooling™ products are designed to provide extended service intervals, improved performance and increased productivity, whilst reducing equipment downtime and associated life cycle costs.”
Ashley Hams, Mining Solutions Vice President, said: “Through historic and ongoing service delivery as well as continuous product engineering innovation, our COR Cooling product and service lines have advanced to be a market leader.”
Hams added: “The ability to supply application specific cooling systems to our mining and industrial customers working in some of the toughest conditions in the world has demonstrated the engineering and quality prowess that H-E Parts has become synonymous with.”
H-E Parts said it believes that the partnership of the proven COR Cooling product line, combined with in-house engineering and service support, will provide a flexible, cost-effective, long-term solution for Glencore.
