THE CHALLENGE

Moving a stacker across a power station and mining site in an Australian first

AGL planned to relocate Loy Yang's travelling stacker, also known as the TS4, from its external overburden site into the base of the coal mine. But with no power of its own, getting it there would require some engineering and planning feats.

 

Project fact file

30 Days

Duration of move

22 kms

Distance to travel

2 Loadbanks

 

THE SOLUTION

Generators on board with backup on site 

We installed two 800 kVA generators on board (as well as an additional 800 kVA on standby) and fitted them with fire suppression and detection systems. We also supplied two loadbanks to sink excess power from the generators when the machine was travelling downhill.

 

The Aggreko Difference

30 days, 2100 tonnes, 22kms – and Aggreko was there every step of the way.

 

THE IMPACT

An Australian mining first executed flawlessly

We took care of the whole project, including supplying standby power and round the clock refuelling and support. Loadbanks helped the machine move safely downhill, and our refuelling procedure mitigated any risk of spillage.
