Hi­tachi lauds Maules Creek suc­cess

The Australian Mining Review - - WHITEHAVEN COAL -

AS a ma­jor min­ing equip­ment sup­plier to White­haven Coal, Hi­tachi Con­struc­tion Ma­chin­ery Aus­tralia (HCA) would like to con­grat­u­late the heavy­weight pro­ducer on its suc­cess of the Maules Creek project.

Maules Creek has been a project close to HCA with in­volve­ment from the early plan­ning stages and ten­der­ing min­ing equip­ment, be­fore its em­i­nent open­ing in 2015.

HCA are a proud sup­plier part­ner to White­haven for min­ing equip­ment and the as­so­ci­ated prod­ucts along with the sup­port­ing ser­vices.

To date, HCA has de­liv­ered to White­haven 50 pieces of Hi­tachi Min­ing Equip­ment which are now be­ing op­er­ated on site, con­sist­ing of 42 rigid-frame dump trucks and 8 ex­ca­va­tors.

The fleet is also mon­i­tored and man­aged us­ing Hi­tachi’s Wenco Fleet Man­age­ment Sys­tem.

In sup­port of op­er­at­ing Hi­tachi ma­chin­ery and to en­hance op­er­a­tor train­ing, the EH5000 truck sim­u­la­tor is ac­ces­si­ble on site for White­haven op­er­a­tors to gain max­i­mum con­fi­dence be­fore grad­u­at­ing into the mines.

To en­sure a safe work place is pro­vided, HCA and White­haven have to­gether nur­tured an en­riched safety cul­ture en­sur­ing the project pro­vides a safe work en­vi­ron­ment from as­sem­bly, com­mis­sion­ing through to op­er­a­tional stages.

The Maules Creek project has greatly as­sisted HCA with fu­ture de­vel­op­ment to sup­port the min­ing busi­ness in New South Wales.

Cur­rently, HCA’s Gunnedah branch pro­vides on­go­ing parts and ser­vice sup­port and in light of the grow­ing suc­cess of Maules Creek, HCA plans to build a new fa­cil­ity in Gunnedah to en­sure this de­vel­op­ment has the foun­da­tion to in­stil growth well into the fu­ture.

HCA has had the priv­i­lege to be a part of the ma­jor on­go­ing de­vel­op­ment, pro­vid­ing lead­ing min­ing so­lu­tions to make the Maules Creek project a con­tin­ued suc­cess.

HCA’s Gunnedah branch has gone from strength to strength with the suc­cess of White­haven Coal’s Maules Creek project de­vel­op­ment.
