Partnering with a one of a kind mining exhibition

Client: Diggers and Dealers Mining Forum

Location: Kalgoorlie, Australia

Sectors: Mining

The Challenge

Providing the power, heating and cooling for the largest marquee in the Southern Hemisphere

The main marquee was over 3,000 square metres and housed almost 130 trade show stands, dining space for over 2,000 people and the main presentation hall. A lot was riding on having the power, heating and cooling perfect for the three-day event and Aggreko was up for the challenge.     

Project Fact File

Of ducting 1000m
Size of marquee 3000m2
Of power 825kW
They've proven over the years to be extremely reliable and it would be hard to find a substitute for that kind of service and it's our hope that they'll remain a part of Diggers & Dealers for many years to come.

The Solution

A complete power, heating a cooling package tailored to exacting specifications

We worked closely with the team from Diggers & Dealers to create a tailored package to meet the demands of the project. Heating the marquee required the use of an 800 kW boiler and 300 kW air handlers, cooling the kitchens meant 100 kW air conditioners were needed, and everything had to be powered using our canopy generators ranging from 125 kVA to 350 kVA.

The Impact

Another great show without missing a beat

The 2017 Diggers & Dealers Mining Forum was once again a great success, thanks to the combination of careful planning, experienced advice and an expert team. We prove ourselves time and again to be the supplier of choice when it comes to power, heating and cooling, and our customer is already looking to next year's event - and we'll be right there, helping them to put on another great show.
