Bis awarded five-year GBU Coal Mine contract

Leading resources logistics provider Bis has continued its expansion into the Indonesian resources market by securing a long-term contract to deliver load and haul services at the Gunung Bara Utama (GBU) Coal Mine in East Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Under the contract, Bis will deliver load and haul services from 2018 – 2023, with a two-year option to extend. 

Bis CEO Brad Rogers said his team would be working closely with their new client to deliver its safe, efficient and innovative solution to the project.

“We are excited to partner with GBU to help deliver on their high-quality Indonesian coal project, through the application of our innovative and proven high payload haulage solution.”

“Building local capability is integral to our approach. Our 120 strong workforce will be resourced from the local area, and a significant proportion will be housed locally within the community.”

“As always, our commitment to Zero Harm will be a key focus.  We will look to replicate the success at our nearby Tabang project, which recently passed the milestone of three million hours Lost Time Injury (LTI) free.”

Bis President Director of Indonesian Operations, Andy Coles commented, “We look forward to developing a strong partnership with GBU over the coming years and to supporting them to achieve their goals.”

The GBU project is located in Mantar village, Damai sub-district, West Kutai Regency of East Kalimantan, Indonesia, and provides resources internationally to the world’s coal markets.

Bis is expected to commence mobilisation to site immediately.
