Conflow, a leading manufacturer of dust and fire suppression systems for the mining industry, has won a major new contract with Colombian producer of metallurgical coal CI Milpa – the first contract the company has secured in Colombia.
The deal was brokered through Conflow’s sister company, Bretby Gammatech, which has supplied CI Milpa with its Ash Probes for monitoring the ash content of coal for several years.
A team from Conflow visited the CI Milpa mine in Bogota and fitted two dust suppression systems. They also fitted a fire suppression system on a roadway for Milpa in another location in Bogota.
“We are focused on continually improving the efficiency and safety of our production sites and the Conflow systems are an important part of this,” said David Fernando Jaimes Mojica from C.I. Milpa. “We chose to work with Conflow, because of the company’s expertise in the manufacture and installation of dust and fire suppression systems and are very pleased with the result.”
Conflow and Bretby Gammatech, as well as Bestobell Valves, are part of the Sheffield-based President Engineering Group Ltd.
