Authorised truck access to Indonesian mine
Location: Kalimantan Indonesia
Client: Kalimantan Mining Project
Bontang Coal Mine is located in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The mine supplies up to 3.8 million tons of steam-quality coal annually to power generation and industrial users in the Pacific Rim markets.
The client wished to monitor truck access to restricted areas. As most of the trucks entering the premises originate from third parties, a system of pre-registration of vehicles was required. Previously, a manual system was in place with the driver registering with security at the entrance. This resulted in long queues of trucks during peak hours.
Nedap AVI’s TRANSIT system with boosters was chosen for two reasons. Firstly, it enabled driver based identification. With the booster, the correct driver and truck could be registered in the access control system before arriving on the premises, thus negating the extra step of having to register with security at the port. Secondly, and most importantly, even during peak hours and from a distance of 10m, the drivers and trucks could be granted access without delay.
