A Big Win for Australian Technology in Mining
Australia is home to the largest pocket of identified resources in the world and is consistently ranked in the top 5 for production across a range of commodities. With world-scale operations taking place in our own backyard, Australians can take a truly agile approach to innovation in mining.
By designing and building solutions with clients and partners, RedEye has been able to solve real-world problems that affect mining organisations around the world. This month, we’re honoured to be announced as the Mining Technologies winner at the 2018 Australian Technologies Competition.
From a startup in Brisbane, Australia in 2012, RedEye has since grown into a team of over 70 people across Australia, The United States, Canada and The Phillipines. RedEye gives asset owners control over their intellectual property and their assets by consolidating enormous data sets, eliminating duplication and creating a single source of truth for information.
As the only purpose-built cloud and mobile based Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that manages “As-Built” data (engineering drawings and associated documents) for large asset owners, RedEye’s clients reach beyond Australia to mining organisations around the world.
Take gold mining in Turkey, for example.
Alacer Gold’s Çöpler Mine Expansion Project is extending the Çöpler Mine life by another 20 years. Without a document management system that suited the project, the organisation adopted RedEye to collect the documentation and the knowledge that was created during the project through to handover and operations. In a recent chat with Wayne Gerard, John Ebbett, Project Director, shared examples of how RedEye has become essential in improving safety and productivity on-site.
Back in Australia, Impact Technology Ventures (ITV) and The Australian Technologies Competition & Accelerator Program recognises Australia’s best technologies company in their annual competition. Their aim is to support and promote innovative and emerging technologies that have the greatest global potential.
This year, 199 entries were submitted across various industries and, from there, 34 semi-finalists submitted their business plan. Last week, 13 finalists presented in Sydney and 8 winners were announced including fellow Queenslanders Advanced Robotic Technology and Hydrox Technologies.
By building strong relationships and designing and building with our clients and partners, RedEye can harness the best minds and develop the best technology that ensures Australia will always lead the way in safety and productivity in mining.
