Glencore Coal Assets Australia Pty Ltd. awarded a one-year supply agreement to H-E Parts International to supply and overhaul new and service exchanged radiators for the former’s mobile equipment fleet across 24 mine sites in Australia. The contract can be extended based on performance.
H-E Parts Mining Solutions Cooling Division branches will manage the contract. The fleets have various styles of independent radiators and complete modular nose cones, which include the radiator, fan and motor and charge air cooler as a complete assembly.
Leadership at H-E Parts said the viability of the company’s COR Cooling product, now a market leader, helped the company get the contract. “Further, the ability to supply application-specific cooling systems to our mining and industrial customers working in some of the toughest conditions in the world, demonstrated the engineering and quality prowess of H-E Parts,” Ashley Hams, vice president, mining solutions, H-E Parts, said.
Separately, H-E Parts announced the acquisition of Allgo Engineering, which occurred in late 2018. The announcement was delayed until the completion of a new facility.
H-E Parts said the acquisition will add to its capabilities in-house machining by Allgo to provide a cost-effective solution for the West Australia market.
The new facility has 100-metric ton (mt) lifting capacity, a vertical lathe that can swing up to 8 m in diameter, a horizontal lath that can turn up to 11 m in length, and multiple nine-axis floor borers for milling work.
