Centurion moves milestone engine module for Komatsu

Leading transport and logistics company, Centurion, has moved a milestone engine module for a major client.

Centurion were joined by mining and industrial machinery specialist Komatsu earlier this week to celebrate having transported its 150th engine module for the MCRS engine module repower program.

The engine module program is the result of a collaboration between Rio Tinto, Cummins and Komatsu which began in mid-2017.

As part of a new technology roadmap involving Komatsu 830E and 930E haul trucks and autonomous mining vehicles being upgraded with the latest technology Cummins QSK60 MCRS Advantage Plus engines in the Pilbara region, the companies have been supporting and fundraising for mental health support service Beyond Blue.

To celebrate the program on each site, all three companies have hosted BBQs to raise money for Beyond Blue.

The engines have also been painted blue to support and highlight the Beyond Blue fundraising efforts.

Centurion confirmed the 830E Module pictured is destined for Rio Tinto’s Brockman 4 Operations, a 1500km journey North of Perth.

The 3.3 metre wide module weighs 17.5 tonnes.

Centurion anticipates it will deliver the 200th Module for Komatsu sometime in Q4 2021.
