Mackay’s engineering, industrial and technology sector is being promoted in the nation’s capital this week as part of the Modern Mining Technology Showcase.
The Canberra showcase is part of the Minerals Council of Australia’s Minerals Week 2019.
Resource Industry Network, together with the Greater Whitsunday Alliance, is joining representatives from the local mining services sector including Mackay-based Linked Group Services, TEAM Group, Mackay Conveyor Equipment, and Artemis.
RIN general manager Adrienne Rourke said the event was another opportunity for Mackay’s METS (Mining Equipment, Technology and Services) businesses to demonstrate their innovation prowess.
“Mackay is a leading global METS hub with world-class innovations. The Canberra event allows us to raise more awareness of our capabilities and capacity as a sector, as well as show off specific individual innovations from local METS businesses,” she said.
“The Modern Mining Technology Showcase is one of six national showcases that Resource Industry Network will be participating in during 2019, so if there are any other businesses interested in participating, they should contact us soon.”
Linked Group Services will be showcasing its EcoPort that provides both shelter and solar power generation, while Mackay Conveyor Equipment will demonstrate the efficiency, safety and productivity benefits of its Wombelt and Jibaroo products
