Modular Celebrates 200th Customer: Vale – Moatize Mine

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Modular Mining Systems, Inc. is proud to announce that Vale S.A. (Vale), the world’s leading iron ore producer, has chosen to implement IntelliMine® technology at its Moatize mine site, a new coalmine in Tete Province, Mozambique. The selection marks the 200th Modular customer over 30 years as a mining technology pioneer.
The bundled solution includes the DISPATCH® mine management system, MineCare® maintenance management system, ProVision® machine guidance solutions, PowerView™ reporting software, and MasterLink® wireless network. “We decided to purchase the IntelliMine system for its reliability and its power to meet our mine’s requirements,” said Reinaldo Goncalves, Vale Mine Planning and Geology Manager, “and we’ve been working with the system at other Vale operations with good results.”
For Modular, the partnership marks an important milestone. When Moatize is commissioned later this year, it will become the 12th Vale operation using IntelliMine solutions and the 3rd new mine to adopt Modular technology this year. “Vale has been a long-term customer of Modular, with the first system commissioned at Carajas in 1994,” said Peter Carter, Modular CEO. “It’s an honor to further our relationship with Vale—they are truly a world-class mining company.” For Vale, the new system will provide haulage optimization, proactive maintenance tools, and increased safety, while boosting production and lowering operating costs.
