Three year ex­ten­sion for Bis

The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS: THE CONTRACTORS -

MIN­ING ser­vices com­pany Bis has been awarded a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion to pro­vide haulage ser­vices for White­haven Coal’s Tar­ra­wonga and Roc­glen coal mines in NSW.

Bis would de­liver a new fleet of en­hanced prime movers to sup­port the Gunnedah op­er­a­tions.

The be­spoke haulage so­lu­tion pro­vided greater pay­load ca­pac­ity, while re­duc­ing the num­ber of prime movers, de­liv­er­ing cost ef­fi­cien­cies and ben­e­fits to White­haven Coal.

One way trips would also be re­duced by 36 per cent (about 48 000 fewer trips per an­num when com­pared to the cur­rent fleet) which would re­duce ve­hi­cle emis­sions, and con­trib­ute to im­proved lo­cal road safety.
