On Thursday, 25 October Bis introduced Rexx to Australia at Bibra Lake in Western Australia.
A year in the making, Bis succeeded in merging the practical advantages of a mine haul truck and longer haul mine trucks into a new modern design.
Speaking at the launch, Bis Chief Executive Officer, Brad Rogers explained: “Rexx was born out of an intimate understanding of our customers’ needs and challenges. We are very excited about the opportunity that Rexx creates for a whole range of mining operations in Australia and internationally”.
Locally developed by Bis, Rexx is a new mine haulage truck that offers compelling value, more flexibility, reduced operating costs and operates at a longer range compared to the traditional haul trucks.
It has been built to carry a 160 tonne payload, and travels more than four times further than conventional dump trucks. Rexx will form part of Bis’ suite of bespoke load and haul solutions, which also includes Dual Powered Road Trains, providing a highly competitive, integrated mine haulage solution for its mining customers.
The launch introduced Rexx to a range of industry representatives, and audiences around the globe tuned in to live streaming on the Bis website.
The product launch saw over a hundred guests meet both Rexx and the team who were responsible for the design and build of this game changing haulage truck.
