Sean is responsible for leading the strategic direction and the R&D focus of the business, including software and hardware development. This emphasis on continuous improvement and innovation enables FluidIntel to remain the world’s best practice in fuel management systems for the mining sector. Sean’s strategic initiative has enabled FluidIntel’s recent move into the bulk rail transport and bulk fuel supplier sectors.
Sean was one of the co-founders of FluidIntel, and worked with the company’s founding CEO to develop a specialised fuel management system for the mining sector, AdaptFMS. Sean was responsible for the development of AdaptFMS from inception, including industrial design, electronics, and software development. AdaptFMS was launched in 2007 and quickly became the market leader in Australian mining.
Sean has led the R&D impetus since then, overseeing the introduction of the first FMS web application, the first FMS touch-screen controller, the first mining enterprise focused FMS, and the first multi-platform Remote Tank Monitoring solution (among many other innovations). Sean also went on to become FluidIntel’s CEO in 2014.
Previously, Sean was the owner, founder and CEO of the Birrell Group, where he contributed to the initial design and conception of the world’s first carbon fibre operating table, including the design of key user interface components such as the patient positioning remote control which articulated the patient through six ranges of motion before and during surgery. Sean also developed one of the first RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) production lines in Australia to produce components for the operating table and sold the resulting IP to an Australian-based medical devices company.
In all scales of mining, a critical component for productivity from all heavy equipment from the go-line, down to the center of the pit, is ensuring fuel is readily available and accessible to these pieces of equipment when their tanks run low.
Poor quality or contaminated diesel fuel contributes to more than 75% of fuel system related failures in all mining fuel consuming assets.
