Underground Mine Cooling and Ventilation Systems

Effective cooling and ventilation for the below ground operations

As mining enterprises dig dipper in more remote locations, it's more important than ever that below ground operations are effectively cooled and ventilated. With surface temperatures regularly topping 45 degrees, not achieving this leaves your staff vulnerable to serious health risks and your equipment prone to malfunction. 


Benefits of Aggreko's flexible solution for mine cooling

The inflexibility of traditional built-in cooling and mine ventilation systems means they’re no longer the best solution, so we’ve come up with an alternative. Aggreko’s short- and long-term rentals provide the answer to the most common concerns that mine safety engineers have:

1. Keeping staff safe

The ‘safe zone’ for working temperatures is below 30 degrees, and you need to trust your plant will achieve this all day, every day. With Aggreko not only can you easily scale your cooling and ventilation plant to match demand, you also benefit from our expertise to ensure your needs are always met.

2. Affordability 

There are significant cost-savings to be had with rentals, freeing up capital that can be invested elsewhere in your operation. 

3. Maintenance and parts

With rental equipment, you’re not liable for expenses around maintenance and upgrades. As well as reducing overheads, our team will ensure any maintenance is completed quickly to eliminate downtime.

4. Scalability

As mine operation is closely linked to market changes, you need to be able to scale up and down easily and efficiently. This isn’t possible with a built-in cooling and underground mine ventilation plant, but with rentals, you can quickly modify your setup at a fraction of the cost of buying a new permanent plant.
