The Loc8 solution will be used by BHP Billiton to help with cost containment and underpins a $1 billion capital productivity project that involves full automation of previously manual processes/procedures.
Loc8 will be the intelligence behind automation, data dissemination and control of over 200 business process rules managing 67 robots forming a Rolling Stock Reliability System (RSRS) employed at BHP Billiton’s Nelson Point and Mooka Ore Car Repair Shops (OCRSs).
BHPBIO has expanded its operations to 240 million tonnes per annum at a new railway marshalling yard to include the OCRS at Mooka siding along the existing Port Hedland to Newman Mainline.
“Loc8 has provided its cloud platform and services to BHPBIO, and was chosen from a stringent competitive review process.”
“Every company, no matter how large or small in the service supply chain, strives to run as efficiently as possible. BHP Billiton's newly created iron ore car maintenance facility in Mooka, WA, has taken the opportunity to set a high standard in efficiency from the ground up in using Loc8 effectively as its 'digital oil' to run its maintenance operations. We are proud to work with the team to deliver this innovative project.”
