Techenomics is anticipating positive results in 2013, after working to win contracts, opening new laboratories and expanding its product range during the last 12 months.
The company’s Papua New Guinea branch has grown its business base, recently winning the contract to provide a full condition monitoring service to the Simberi gold mine for St Barbara.
“We have been working with a number of organizations in PNG for some time and this new opportunity fits perfectly with our longer term aim to expand our global reach for our oil analysis services,” says Techenomics’ executive director Chris Adsett. “We are looking forward to working with the St Barbara team assisting them in developing a maintenance management structure that will minimize their costs and maximize their equipment and over time we will expand the available services to include specialty lubricants and field services.”
The contract includes used and fresh oil sample analysis, grease analysis, coolant analysis, fuel analysis, supplying of sample kits and online trending of oil test results, equipment life hours, oil test history, and on line reporting via Blue Ocean software program.
In 2012 Techenomics opened its first laboratory in Mongolia, meaning the company can now offer the widest range of condition monitoring testing available in the country. A superior local and worldwide technical support team has also been put together and the laboratory is now well poised to provide a very complete, broad and extensive condition monitoring service to all industrial segments in Mongolia, especially the mining industry.
“I’m proud of the progress that has been made in Mongolia and the strong relationship we have established with virtually all of the substantial miners. We can now do about 5000 oil analysis samples per month, coolant analysis, grease analysis, fuel analysis and transformer oil analysis, which is a major achievement for the company,” says Chris Adsett.
The company has also completed its first coal seam gas project in Tanzania, East Africa, which was considered a major success despite no gas being discovered. Techenomics is looking to add gas testing to their Indonesian operations and to closely monitor the opportunities in East Africa.
