Swift expands digital contract at Western Areas Forrestania nickel operation

first_imgAmong a number of resource-sector contract wins, Swift Networks Group has expanded its previous agreement with nickel miner Western Areas at its Forrestania operation in Western Australia.The existing contract, originally signed in 2014, was to provide in-room digital services to the 465-bed accommodation village at Forrestania. The new pact expands Swift’s contract by 68 rooms to 533 rooms and includes an on-site phone network upgrade in addition to Swift’s entertainment and communication services.Swift, which calls itself a diversified telecommunications, content and advertising solutions provider, says it delivered consistent growth in the resources market over 2018, both through direct contract wins and new clients secured by the company’s network of reseller partners.“The company continues to view Resources as an attractive growth opportunity in light of the significant pipeline of new mining exploration, construction and development projects currently underway throughout Australia,” Swift says.Forrestania is Western Areas’ flagship asset and consists of the Flying Fox and Spotted Quoll mines, the Cosmic Boy concentrator, a regional tenement package considered highly prospective for further nickel discoveries, and significant site infrastructure; including the accommodation village, grid-connected power, water management network, airstrip and nickel concentrate export facilities.Based on 10-year production targets, Forrestania is expected to produce an average of 25,000 t/y of nickel concentrate.last_img read more
