Transense supplying Peru copper mine
Transense Technologies PLC’s trading division Translogik has won a contract to supply 24 iTrack II mining tyre monitoring systems including the full suite of data analytics for large haul trucks at Southern Copper’s Cuajone mine in Peru. These systems are to be supplied on a subscription model basis.
“This method allows mining companies to benefit from the productivity gains and overhead savings provided by using the system without any of the associated capital cost while providing Transense with a recurring revenue stream.”
Josue Vilchez, general chief mine operation at Cuajone, said: “We have conducted extensive trials over the course of the last 18 months with all of the current market leading systems and we have concluded that iTrack is the best TPMS system in the mining environment available. We are very keen to start operations with iTrack II which will allow us to immediately benefit from the increase in production and health and safety that iTrack provides. The system will initially be installed on our Cat 797F haul truck fleet however, we expect iTrack will subsequently be rolled out to our extended fleet in Peru which amounts to a further 100 trucks.”
Graham Storey, CEO of Transense, said: “This is further validation of the superior qualities of the iTrack system over and above any other system available in the market today. Southern Copper’s decision to adopt the entire suite of Data Analytics is an indication of the increasing awareness of the value of the analytical data that our 24/7 Monitoring and Analytics centre in Chile produces which greatly enhances the overall value of the system.”
