Under their memorandum of agreement, Downer will carry out any maintenance work on Sandvik materials handling equipment at its customer sites with the objective of “ensuring equipment is safely up and running in the shortest possible time to meet production targets”
“We are delighted to be working with Downer to support our customers with a more extensive field service offering,” Sandvik Mining Systems global operations and maintenance manager Wayne Slight said.
“This agreement will offer enormous benefits to our customers’ productivity and operations around Australia.”
He said the partnership with Downer would also provide a more extensive field service offering.
Downer bids and contracts manager Paul Gilbert called the alliance a “best-fit” solution for both organisations and their customers.
“Downer has an extensive history in the mining and construction industry and we’ve developed a strong level of product knowledge of Sandvik Mining Systems and the necessary expertise to maintain them correctly,” he said.
“This agreement will allow us to carry out full servicing, repairs and maintenance on Sandvik Mining Systems, including working with onsite service crews, to ensure the equipment continues to operate safely, optimally and reliably.”
