EDMONTON, April 14 /CNW/ - Matrikon Inc. (TSX:MTK), a leading provider of industrial performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that a large multinational mining company has deployed Matrikon's Mobile Equipment Monitor to monitor the performance of heavy mobile equipment at its mine site. This is the third site deployment as part of a contract for each of the company's North American mines, originally signed in December 2008. Implementation of the remaining mines is planned for later in 2010.

Mobile Equipment Monitor collects real-time operating data and alarm information from haul trucks, shovels and loaders. It provides data visualization, trending and analysis, which contribute to improved fleet performance and the ability to reduce or prevent catastrophic component failures. The end results are a significant reduction in operating and maintenance (O&M) costs, extended equipment life and improved safety in the mines.

David Fisk, Department Manager, Mining Solutions at Matrikon, stated: "The mine's commitment to continuing deployment in spite of tight capital budgets underscores the value that Mobile Equipment Monitor delivers to customers. Mobile Equipment Monitor, like our other integrated industry applications, combines Matrikon's leading technology, our operations know-how and experience, and input from industry leaders to solve very specific industry challenges - in this case, improving productivity of critical capital assets while lowering cost."
