Orcoda’s Resource Logistics Division has signed a service supply agreement with Minset that will see the two companies carry out a planned maintenance shutdown of one of BHP’s operational mines.
The service will take around a month to complete with revenue of A$35,000 ($25,103), Orcoda said.
Orcoda said the project, which is to commence on January 22, involves using Orcoda’s management platform and processes, supported by the Minset team, to undertake a live planned maintenance shutdown on an operational mine.
“This live shutdown follows the recent successful execution of the previously announced trial mine shutdown service,” Orcoda, which previously traded as SmartTrans Holdings, said.
In this partnership with Minset, and in cooperation with the BHP in-house maintenance team, Orcoda is implementing a real time, mine shutdown, which involves coordinating 350 sub-contracted workers. The platform and process can be used to scale to other mines and maintenance schedules, according to Orcoda.
Andrew Attrill, Minset Director, said: “We are excited to be partnering with Orcoda to implement their digital products to optimise shutdowns. We know this will be an important evolution in improving shutdown performance across the resources industry.”
