By Stephen Nye – President Director, PT. Britmindo Jasa Utama
PT. Britmindo Jasa Utama (BJU) during November recorded its largest single monthly coal production under management. BJU is presently managing five (5) operational sites, two (2) of which only commenced coal production within the last couple of months.
Our mine management sites are located in East and South Kalimantan plus Jambi, Sumatera. Below is a tabulated summary of coal production under management for November 2014.
The year to date (end of November 2014) total coal production performance is as follows;
Despite the deflated coal prices, we are confident of further increasing the production across all operational sites from this month onwards and envisage our monthly production to increase to upwards of 600,000mt (coal) and 3,000,000bcm (overburden) into the new year.
BJU site management teams have been successful in increasing production and operational efficiency whilst reducing cost to the client on all project sites. One site in particular for example, has successfully implemented operational improvements reducing fuel factors from over 1.1 litre/bcm down to 0.55 litre/bcm last month allowing the client to maximise mineable reserves and maintain operational profit margins. As a direct result of this, a contract extension has been awarded to our client with additional mining areas opened up by the IUP owner under the management of BJU.
Huge congratulations to all BJU employees for this fantastic achievement during difficult times. BJU is ready to assist mining companies improve its productivity, efficiency through our professional, performance driven and experienced on site mine management services.
