Geographically vast and remote, Rail is a key component of the Resource sector supply chain. Getting the product from mine to port or mine to production safely and efficiently is very much dependent on an optimised rail network.
Within the Rail Applications and Communications network, safety is the number one priority closely followed by the efficient and reliable delivery of critical services to mining operations and the thousands of people under mining companies’ duty of care and public safety.
We understand the role data and technology play in optimising the delivery strategies from pit to port however, rail often becomes an island within the technology landscape and the challenge is to integrate certain components safely and securely into an overall technology standard. Importantly, we also understand the difference between Vital and Non-Vital applications and what to leave to the Signalling and Communications experts. We also know how to act as a conduit between the rail, technology and engineering to ensure the right outcome is achieved.
Digitisation in the Resources & Energy sectors is maturing from tentative experiment to application at massive scale. Mines and refineries are now striving for digital maturity and realize it is no longer a question of whether they can afford to do something, but rather a question of whether they can afford not to.
