Trysome Auto Electrical renews collaboration with Hexagon Mining

Trysome Auto Electrical CEO, Eddie Smith and Hexagon Mining president, Hélio Samora strengthened the long-standing collaboration between the organisations by signing a new agreement at Trysome Auto Electrical’s head office in Johannesburg, South Africa in April.

The partnership ensures the continued availability of Hexagon Mining’s SAFEmine suite of collision avoidance solutions in the South African market. It also means strengthened service and support for Hexagon Mining’s wider portfolio of integrated solutions. Besides collision avoidance and fatigue monitoring, these solutions include proven technologies for surveying, design, fleet management, and production optimisation.

Trysome Auto Electrical has represented Hexagon Mining in the sub-Saharan African region since 2008. Today, the flagship collision avoidance system (CAS) is running in more than 25 000 mining vehicles in more than 60 mines worldwide. Samora and Smith agreed that renewed collaboration is good news for customers in South Africa.

“Deadlines are looming for many mines to comply with South Africa’s new safety regulations, so this is a timely agreement between our companies,“ says Samora.

“CAS and our new vehicle intervention system (VIS) will help customers protect their people and equipment, as well as meeting those deadlines.“

Under new laws, mines will soon be compelled to enhance safety for all trackless mobile machinery, such as haul trucks.

Smith called the companies’ relationship an ‘ideal partnership’.

“Hexagon’s international experience and Trysome Auto Electrical’s 26 years of African market expertise, infrastructure, and footprint are ideally suited for customers facing second-phase legislation. With over 150 skilled technicians and a team of specialist engineers, Trysome Auto Electrical is well geared to meet local demand.”
