Meet Rexx, Bis’ mine haulage solution of the future
Leading Australian resource logistics company Bis has launched Rexx, a revolutionary new mine haulage product.
Rexx is a robust haul truck which offers miners a step change in flexibility and efficiency. Bis has leveraged its unique position as both a leading mine haulage operator and as a proven Original Equipment Manufacturer (through its subsidiary Powertrans) to design and build Rexx in-house, in Perth, Western Australia.
Rexx offers compelling value to miners. 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.
Speaking at the product launch in Perth, Bis Chief Executive Officer Brad Rogers said Rexx was a game changer for mine haulage, incorporating the best features of long-haul road trains and short haul mine trucks.
“Rexx’s robust and simple design leverages our existing knowledge and resources. This has meant we were able to keep our manufacturing costs low, allowing Bis to deliver savings to customers through our service delivery model.”
“At Bis, we are driven by bringing technology and innovation to our customers to deliver real value. We are very excited about the opportunity that Rexx creates for a whole range of mining operations in Australia and internationally.”
Rexx has been designed to operate on narrower, lower specification roads. The design offers a smoother ride and better visibility for operators and dramatically improved tyre management. Rexx has also been designed for ease of maintenance.
Rexx’s greater distance capability eliminates the need for double handling and its associated risks. Designed with the highest safety requirements in mind, Rexx is equipped with Bis’ fatigue management system, as well as 360 degree view cameras and reversing cameras for greater hazard management.
