Danka_Distributorship agreement

Written by Kane Read, Business Development Manager.

The start of the new financial year represents some significant milestones for MineARC in the South East Asia region.

MineARC is very pleased to announce an official distributor agreement with Danka Minerals in Vietnam. Danka is a well-respected supplier of technical machinery and equipment within the Vietnamese coal mining industry, and a long term partner of Vinacomin (Vietnam National Coal – Mineral Industries Group).

Danka’s reputation as a prestigious supplier in the mining industry makes them an ideal fit for MineARC’s global distributor program. We are confident that their experience in the coal mining industry will allow them to be successful advocates of our CoalSAFE and ancillary range and the overall MineARC brand.

We look forward to an exciting year of growth with Danka Minerals.

June 2015 also saw further successes in India, in collaboration with MineARC distributor, Swati Safesecure Equipments.

Business Development Manager, Kane Read, and International Sales Manager, James Geldart, travelled with Swati to Hindustan Zinc Limited’s Rampa Agucha mine in Rajasthan, where they commissioned four MineARC Compact Design (ELVP) Refuge Chambers (Read more on this commissioning here). Upon successful trial of these units, MineARC sees great potential in the region, with an overall increase in safety standards.

Hindustan Zinc is also an avid supporter of MineARC’s ancillary range. The Rampa Angucha mine site has now installed four MineARC Stench Gas Units, designed to provide an olfactory alert in noisy locations where audible alarms cannot be heard. The powerful odour of the stench gas can be quickly dispersed throughout the mine’s underground ventilation system in an emergency, alerting personnel of impending danger.

Hindustan Zinc have installed manually operated stench gas units throughout their site. MineARC also offer electric configurations that can be remotely activated via an above-surface master control panel.

Hindustan are also excited to introduce the MineARC EnviroLAV on-site, recently placing an order for four of the innovative toilet systems at Rampa Angucha.

The EnviroLAV is available in either pneumatic or electric models, ideal for both above and below ground industrial or isolated environments.
