In addition to the mining cylinder repair work, Logan will support the customer's Hitachi 5500/5600 shovel cylinders and the Epicroc Pit Viper 271 surface drill feed cylinders.

Logan will also put together a remanufacture programme for the centrepiece of the customer's mining activity - the large Cat 6060F shovel. The Cat 6060F work marks Logan's third remanufacture programme.

Dean Carey, technical director, Logan, said: "Because this customer is located in a remote part of the US, very few suppliers choose to make the journey to their site. They selected Logan for this repair work because we were able to provide onsite service and support, engineering solutions, and demonstrate the high quality of our work upfront in a written project experience report; giving them the confidence to be sure of what they were getting before they placed the order with us."

Logan is a specialist in carrying out equipment repairs within industries where time is critical. "As Logan gets started in the mining industry, we are making long-term plans to support our customers during emergency repairs and during planned outages," added Carey, "and as always, we are committed to delivering customised solutions for customers that need our specialist support."
