Multi-year deal sees Datapod deployed globally for resources giant

Posted by Adam Smith on Feb 22, 2018 10:11:12 AM

Datapod recently signed a 5 year deal with a major resources company that will see the Datapod system deployed globally in a variety of climatic regions and a range of sizes and densities - all based on the standardized Datapod architecture.  Factory-built systems will be rolled out from July 2018 to sites across Australia, and globally from the following year.  Competition from manufacturers around the world fell away as the customer's stringent technical and safety demands became apparent.  Datapod's proven track record in the resource sector as well as our >1500 days without LTI safety record were key factors in our selection, according to Managing Director Scott Carr.  "You can't operate for nearly 5 years without incident unless safety is embedded in the culture of the company".
