Transense Technologies plc, the AIM quoted company focused on patent-protected sensor systems and supporting technology, has today announced that Translogik, its trading division providing tyre management solutions, has won a further contract through its Chilean partner Otraco, to supply 40 iTrack II mining tyre monitoring systems for large haul trucks at the BHP Billiton mine Cerro Colorado. Cerro Colorado are currently using 16 iTrack I units and have decided to upgrade to iTrack II and roll the system out to their entire fleet.
These systems are to be supplied on a rental and service basis via Otraco. 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 Translogik with a recurring revenue stream.
Graham Storey, CEO of Transense, said: “We are very pleased to have added another BHP mine to our growing list of iTrack users in Chile. We also operate iTrack II in BHP Spence Chile and recently added BHP South Walker Creek Australia and look forward to working more extensively with BHP in the future”.
