Gladstone’s Premron Group has been named as a finalist in the 2019 METS Ignited Collaboration Award.
The recognition comes for the work it is doing with the Kestrel coal mine and the Australian Coal Association.
The Premron Continuous Haulage System (CHS) offers a competitive advantage to conventional bulk material handling in gateroad development as it carries waste away continuously.
Its conveyor design, with an enclosed belt system, reduces dust and enables easy turning capability. (More HERE)
In May this year the technology was announced as one of eight collaborative industry projects delivering new technology into industry with support from round three of the METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds.
Other finalists in the 2019 METS Ignited Collaboration Award include Western Australian businesses Minnovare and Process IQ.
METS Ignited said the companies had been shortlisted for the work they were undertaking with partners to develop and deliver new into industry.
The winners will be announced at next week’s International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) Gala Dinner.
