First Quantum Minerals selected Hyspec Mining Services for the supply and installation of all the hose reels, dispensing guns and meters at its new lubrication bay at the Kansanshi mine in Zambia. The new lube bay will consist in 12 oil and grease dispensing stands (six oil reels and one grease reel per stand). The new maintenance bay, which will be completed in June 2014, will service the mine’s entire fleet of mining equipment.
“We are proud to have won this business”, explains Greg Bowman, Hyspec Zambia Operations Manager. “There was a lot of competition, and Hyspec was selected because of its expertise and of its attractive pricing structure. We are supplying FQM with 84 Graco hose reels, complete with hoses, Piusi flow meters and Raasm dispensing guns. This new project will give us a new opportunity to demonstrate our know-how and to reinforce our relationship with the client.”
