Hectronic products further established in the mining business



We are pleased to announce that our sales partner, Liquid Automation Systems (LAS) in Africa, has succeeded in winning a further key account in the mining business which relies on the Hectronic-solution.

The customer, Anglo American, is a globally active group specialised in the fields of mining and the processing of raw materials. As the company has been able to generate substantial growth in the mining area in recent years, it was interested in a comprehensive fuel management system that precisely monitors and reveals the fuel consumption of its vehicle fleet. In order to achieve this outcome and therefore meet customer requirements the Hectronic fuel management system was offered, with success.

Our sales partner Liquid Automation Systems has been able to equip four different mines belonging to Anglo American with Hectronic products. Thirteen Heconomy controllers have been installed and about 570 vehicles equipped with the automatic vehicle recognition PetroPoint. The comprehensive fuel management system is complemented by Hectronic’s intelligent tank content management solution OptiLevel. Twenty level probes for the reliable monitoring of the tank content have been installed. Their data is visualised attractively via eleven installed Mineo touch controllers which allow for exact data collection. Thus, there are no more obstacles to transparent reporting and the exact monitoring of fuel consumption.

“We are proud of having won Anglo American as our customer. Together with the products and support from Hectronic we have been able to bring about a very big project. It is now guaranteed that the fuel consumption of their fleet can be monitored precisely and efficiently in all four divisions of Anglo American.”, Xolani Mcunu, Liquid Automation Systems
