New plant hire company to service northern Australia

One of Australia’s fastest growing mining and environmental consulting organisations will provide large scale mining, earthmoving and plant hire services to mining and quarrying projects across northern Australia.
OCTIEF Mining, part of the OCTIEF Holdings Group, deals specifically with the mining markets of Northern Territory, Queensland and Western Australia. Currently, the company is still in its infancy, having commenced trading in June 2012.

“When I say Western Australia and Queensland, it’s more directed at the northern areas of those states,” explained OCTIEF Mining Asia Pacific managing director Gary Hill.

“We are definitely planning on expanding as we get the contracts. We’ll expand to what we need. At the moment OCTIEF Mining has three people but OCTIEF as a holding company has more than 130 people working for it.”

OCTIEF Holdings Group is regarded as one of the fastest growing mining and environmental consulting organisations in Australia.

“Through strategic planning, OCTIEF Mining will be able to develop its assets, corporate structure and staff resources in a way that will considerably boost the value of the company,” said Kevin O’Hara, the global managing director of OCTIEF Holdings, which has other subsidiaries in OCTIEF Technologies and OCTIEF Consulting and Laboratories.

O’Hara said OCTIEF Mining’s vision was to be a leader in providing world class project management, utilising a new, modern fleet of mining and civil plant and equipment and supplying industries with a competitive source of all operational requirements.

Hill has been in the mining equipment business for more than 34 years and was operating his own company, Hill Equipment Hire, when he joined OCTIEF.

“I’ve worked with Kevin on other projects and we got talking about starting up a new company and taking on the mining industry with a new business,” Hill explained. “That’s where my experience is, especially in the northern Australian areas.”

OCTIEF Mining’s primary strategy is to acquire major open cut mining services (including quarrying) contracts and infrastructure works within the mining industry, while offering services to the civil construction, oil and gas industries.

“With access to heavy plant and ancillary equipment, we can supply projects with the dry and wet hire of any type of plant or equipment necessary to complete a project,” said Hill. “If the contract needs it, we can supply project managers, operators and maintenance. We have all those ready to go. With new contracts we’ll buy in new equipment.”

At the time of writing, Hill was waiting on some new contracts to come through that would require start-up after the northern wet season in 2013.

The focus for the company is to significantly reduce project costs, increase production efficiency, dramatically cut carbon emissions and footprint and to fly the flag as an environmentally responsible mining company.

“What we’re formulating now is a paperless reporting system, so all operators receive an iPad and all their production reports for the day, everything required in the way of paperwork is all on that iPad,” said Hill. “Then it’s wirelessly connected to a server that will take that information out and pass it on to whoever requires that information and to the client for their production reports.

“Also what we’re doing is fitting new technology to our machines. Rather than just diesel, they will be gas/diesel-type engines and this module will save more than 40 per cent of diesel fuel costs. This can be stationary, engine plant or any plant. Caterpillar is making up the module.

“We are an all-Australian company and take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and operate our projects in a safe and environmentally sound behaviour as accountable members of the community.”
