BHP Olympic Dam in South Australia extends long term partnership with TMT even in times of COVID 19. After more than 20 years working with TMT machines, BHP placed again the order for 2 new sets of combined tapping machines replacing the existing ones for their smelters in Roxby Downs. Beginning of May 2020 after a detailed and extensive tender phase TMT has been nominated as supplier fulfilling the high-level requests for safe machine operation. The two combined tapping machines will be delivered in the first quarter of 2021.
