Thiess awarded FMG work
GLOBAL mining services provider Thiess has won a contract to install autonomous haulage system technology at Fortescue Metals Group’s Christmas Creek operations in the Pilbara.
Under the 18-month contract, Thiess will convert a minimum of 65 haul trucks, along with various sub-component installs to allow machinery to autonomously operate at Fortescue’s Chichester Hubs.
The work would see the installation of the system onto Fortescue’s Komatsu 930E and Caterpillar 789D.
Thiess managing director Douglas Thompson said the company was pleased to continue working with Fortescue to deliver autonomous systems to its mining fleet.
