CANBERRA, Australia - Australian water company Osmoflo has secured a contract to provide operations and maintenance support to the Oaky Creek coal mine (a Glencore managed operation).
Located in Central Queensland, Australia, Oaky Creek is a large scale complex made up of the Oaky No.1 Underground Mine, Oaky North Underground Mine and the Surface Operations.
The mining operations are underpinned by a water management strategy that aims to reduce the amount of mine-affected water held on site, as well as reducing the amount of raw water from the local water supply used for mining operations.
Osmoflo will provide operations and maintenance support, supported by remote monitoring via a 24 hour control centre, with process engineering support and reporting to balance the water demand and availability on-site.
The agreement continues Osmoflo’s involvement as a support partner across a number of Glencore’s network of nationwide sites.
