Swift Media wins more business from Western Australia mines

Swift Media Ltd says it has secured two new technology, entertainment and support contracts with Atlas Iron and a contract extension from AngloGold Ashanti, both in Western Australia.

The specialist technology company which delivers entertainment, communications and advertising to remote locations such as mine sites, has booked A$2 million ($1.56 million) in total contract value from its latest pacts, which also includes a contract extension with LNG focused Inpex Operations.

The Atlas Iron contracts at Miralga Creek and Sanjiv Ridge, in Western Australia, will see Swift provide its On Demand communication and entertainment platform and ongoing support for a 36-month term, plus Wi-Fi internet, fibre works, GPON network replacement, and data cabling for the Miralga Creek Village starting in March.

Swift has also extended its AngloGold contract, thought to be at Tropicana, which will see it supply in-room entertainment and ongoing support in 1,042 rooms for 11 months starting February 2021.

Swift Media has announced three new sales agreements, one of which is in mining, to deploy the company’s proprietary communication and entertainment solutions.

Swift will deploy its proprietary Swift Plus communications and entertainment technology to the clients’ sites, generating up-front installation fees and recurring revenues, the company said.

The contract in the mining space is with Mineral Resources Ltd, whereby Swift will supply 338 new rooms with in-room entertainment for a 16-month term starting from December 2020.

Mineral Resources and Roy Hill remote sites stay connected with Swift Media

Telecommunication and content provider, Swift Media, says it has signed three new contracts to provide fit for purpose entertainment systems at workforce accommodation villages, two of which are for mining clients.

The contracts come with a combined total contract value in excess of A$2 million ($1.23 million), according to the ASX-listed company.

Mineral Resources, which provides mining services to clients throughout Western Australia and the Northern Territory, operates mine sites in the Pilbara and Goldfields regions of WA and ships product through Utah Point and Esperance, has appointed Swift for the provision of PayTV content and ad hoc support and maintenance services to five of its remote accommodation sites, Swift said.

Under a two-year agreement, Swift will provide content to rooms and wet mess areas to service the five remote sites, it explained.

Swift has also been granted a 12-month contract extension from Roy Hill, in Western Australia, where it will continue to provide communications and entertainment services to the Roy Hill iron ore mine village in Western Australia.

Roy Hill is an iron ore mining operation in the Pilbara. Located 340 km southeast of Port Hedland, it has an integrated mine, rail and port facilities and produces 55 Mt/y of iron ore, with approval to increase to 60 Mt/y.
