Client AGL Loy Yang
Location Victoria, Australia
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.

Duration of move
Distance to travel
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.
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.
