Sea Swift invests in mobile equipment at Groote Eylandt

4 February 2019

Sea Swift has recently acquired a new prime mover and refrigeration truck for our Groote Eylandt depot.

This investment replaces hired units, and underpins services on Groote Eylandt well into the future.

Scott Ezzy (Sea Swift Northern Territory General Manager) said: “This equipment allows us to be fully independent to service our loyal customers on Groote Eylandt, with our experienced team led by our well respected Groote Eylandt Manager – Dave Bramley.

“Since establishing our own depot, we have received an incredible amount of support from the community and we aim to further increase the range of services we provide to the Eylandt.”

Due to the recent breakdown of South32 GEMCO’s large forklift, Sea Swift has been assisting the mine with heavy container movements using our 42T forklift.

“Without this critical piece of Sea Swift equipment on Eylandt, there would have been a significant disruption to supply,” said Mr Ezzy.
