Largest Latin American Coal Mine Selects EnviroSuite
Sydney, Aug 12, 2016 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Pacific Environment Limited (ASX:PEH) ("The Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed another significant international client for EnviroSuite. The Cerrejon mine, operated by Carbones del Cerrejon Limited, is located in Colombia and is one of the world's largest open cut coal producers. Cerrejon is owned in three equal parts by subsidiaries of BHP Billiton Limited (ASX:BHP) (NYSE:BHP), Anglo American plc (LON:AAL) (NGLOY:OTCMKTS), and Glencore PLC (LON:GLEN), and includes an integrated rail and port facility.
This is the first EnviroSuite sale in South America and demonstrates the application and relevance of EnviroSuite across borders, languages and differing regulatory regimes. Cerrejon is subject to regulatory and community pressures to control the impacts of dust emissions, as well as operational cost pressures imposed by world market conditions.
The contract with a value of over $400,000 includes an initial consulting component plus 3 years of EnviroSuite operation that will provide real-time air quality data and alerts, 3-day forecasts including site-specific risk identification, and automated daily reports. The Company was successful in an invited tender process involving submitters from the USA, Spain and Australia among which EnviroSuite was a unique offering to address the requirements. The Company was approached on the basis of its consulting record in mining dust issues and our EnviroSuite technology.
It is anticipated that EnviroSuite will yield reduced environmental impacts in nearby communities while also facilitating improved safety and production outcomes. Better information will be available more quickly to internal stakeholders, regulators and surrounding communities.
Commenting on the win, Robin Ormerod, Managing Director, said:
"Our first EnviroSuite sale in the Americas is a testament to the international relevance and competitiveness of our Australiandeveloped technology. Due to the excellent work done by our consultants, tech unit and sales and marketing teams, along with EnviroSuite's successful, existing applications, we can now clearly demonstrate that our world-leading technology offering is ready to move."
