It is important to create the right electrical systems to provide reliable power for underground mining facilities. We can help you ensure that your mining environment is able to grow.
Access to an appropriate system for transmitting and monitoring underground power systems is essential in order to work in underground mines and to get reliable power. Access to backups and protection for sensitive electronic components within your underground mine is essential. Access to power generation is essential to power an underground mine. An excellent option to power an underground mine in an off-grid environment is a mobile transformer or standalone power plant. These systems can be installed underground or in an e-house and provide reliable backup or main power.
Underground Mining equipment monitoring systems are often equipped with circuit panels and automatic shutoff switches. You can check that there is no power surge in the system and ensure that it can be turned off. A backup power generator system or battery backup can ensure that lighting and ventilation can continue even if a breaker trips.
An e-house can be used to protect sensitive electrical equipment from the elements and store it safely. These solutions are ideal for companies that must maintain operations in challenging environments. All sensitive components can be protected by integrating an e-house.
If you want to power an underground mine safely, make sure you have these components in your arsenal!
