James Technologies adds value
The team at Jamestech has worked with staff at the Ernest Henry Mining for more than a decade, and there is no question the team added value to the project.
Jamestech provided electrical and instrumentation labour hire to Ernest Henry since 2000, and also delivered electrical contracting projects and a camp upgrade earlier this year.
During his 15 months as site electrical superintendent, Michael Sprenkeler oversaw a Jamestech electrical instrumentation tech on each swing at the mine.
“They provided basic electrical maintenance activities, especially within our concentrator,” he says.
“They also worked on shutdowns, and we have a shutdown every 13 weeks. They were an integral part of the team in terms of the shutdown activities as well.”
Sprenkeler says that the fact Jamestech is locally based helped keep the relationship strong.
“They accommodated our existing FIFO network well, particularly out of Brisbane and Cairns, and Townsville,” he says.
“I think they were a tried and proven resource. They proved themselves to be a valuable asset to the business over a number of years.”
In addition to seeing Jamestech’s employees each swing, Sprenkeler also supervised the electrical contracting and camp upgrade work completed earlier in 2013.
“They delivered a high standard, a high level of workmanship,” he says.
“They added value to the business.”
Jamestech managing director Darren Caulfield says the company ensures all its clients receive that level of service.
“Our employees have the skills and experience to get the job done,” he says.
“The work we completed at Ernest Henry is another example of what we deliver every day.”
Based on his work with Jamestech, Sprenkeler says he had no problem recommending the company.
“They always met and exceeded expectations,” he says.
“I’m definitely happy to recommend them, there’s no hesitation there.”
