Modular® Systems Installed at Curragh Mine
Tucson, Arizona – May 11, 2009
Modular Mining Systems, Inc., the market leader in powerful information management solutions for mining operations worldwide, is currently installing the latest IntelliMine® asset management technologies at one of Australia’s largest independent coal operations—Curragh Mine.
The installation at Curragh includes the DISPATCH® mine management system, the MineCare® maintenance management system, and the ProVision® machine guidance system. Curragh currently produces around 9 million tonnes of coal per year, but with these new solutions, the mine expects to produce higher volumes with increased efficiency and safety.
Curragh selected Modular systems due to the company’s flexibility to fill client-specific needs, as well as the features offered by IntelliMine® technologies.
“Curragh was able to justify the implementation of Modular systems over a very short period of time,” says Carl Ross, Manager of Business Development for Modular Australasia. “The payback period is different for every site, but Curragh is set to reap the benefits quickly and for many years to come.”
