Byrnecut Australia Signs Major Order With Newtrax Technologies for Proximity Detection Solution
Perth, Australia – September, 2017 — Newtrax Technologies Inc. (‘Newtrax’) – the leading provider of safety and operations management systems for underground hard rock mines – has received a significant order from Byrnecut, the largest mechanised underground mining contractor in Australia.
Byrnecut Australia has placed an order for more than 91 Proximity Warning devices for their fleet of 56 mobile equipment. The Newtrax Safety solution will be deployed at Saracen’s Karari and Deep South underground Mines.
“Newtrax’s Australian operation is proud to be partnering with Byrnecut (Australia’s leading underground mining contractor) on their continued mission and safety commitment. The implementation of Newtrax’s industry leading safety solution at Saracen’s Karari and Deep South mines further cements Newtrax as the global leader in the provision of safety and operation management systems to the underground hardrock mining industry.” said Simon Waghorn, APAC Regional Vice President, Newtrax.
The Newtrax Proximity Warning & Collision Avoidance system was developed to help mine operators enhance awareness and improve safety in the dark and remote areas of underground mines. It allows for the detection of pedestrians, trucks, and any obstacles that may come in the way of an LHD bucket, which is a blind spot that can’t be covered with cameras.
System implementation is expected to begin in October of this year and will be rolled out over an extended project period.
