Mining

Supporting you at every stage of the mining life-cycle

Mining operations are long term projects - so we support you at every stage. We're with you for exploration, project planning, site construction, commissioning and production - providing technical advice and expertise when you're ready to expand. We're even by your side to help with closing the mine at the end of it's natural life span. However remote your mining location is, we'll take care of the power, cooling systems, freeing you to concentrate on the mining.

Conveyor Belt

Conveyor belts are used in various phases of the production process at mine sites – from the mine face and the transportation to the final mixing, blending and stocking. Requiring regular maintenance to ensure smooth operation, we provide modular power during servicing.

Aggreko Cooling Plant

Modular and scalable, our chillers and cooling towers are perfect for keeping underground temperatures at an optimum level, ensuring increased productivity and an overall safer work environment. They can also be used to supplement plant cooling systems as a mine site expands.

Equipment Testing and Maintenance

Additional power, load testing and spot cooling is often required during equipment maintenance. Our load banks, canopy generators and small air conditioners are perfect for the occasion.

Mine De-watering

Removing unwanted water from mine sites are a crucial part of digging for minerals. Requiring a reliable power source, our canopy generators are the perfect solution.

Aggreko Power Plant

Diesel, gas or solar hybrid, we can provide the power you need to keep your mine site running. From day hires to 20 year contracts, our flexible rental agreements allow you to ramp up or ramp down power requirements as needed.

Mine Camp

Mine camps and canteen huts provide crucial living facilities for the miners. We provide the crucial power, cooling systems required keep these running.

Shovel Walk

Power shovels are large machines used for digging and loading earth for mineral extraction. Requiring a mobile power source during relocations, Aggreko are the pioneers when it comes to providing modular motivators saving you time and money.

Crushing and Preparation Plants

Crushing of raw materials and preparation for transportation are an important part of the mining process. With our modular power, you can ramp up or cut down the power required for these systems allowing you to react to the demands of the industry.

“We’ll only supply the power you need, adapting quickly to provide more when you’re busy – or less if things slow down.”

 

We’re with you from start to finish

Mining operations are long-term projects – so we support you at every stage. We’re with you for exploration, project planning, site construction,commissioning and production – providing technical advice and expertise when you’re ready to expand. We’re even by your side to help with closing the mine at the end of its natural life span.

However remote your location, we’ll take care of the power, heating, cooling, compressed air and dehumidification – freeing you to concentrate on the mining.

Breaking ground

Most mines are in remote places with no access to the local grid, making feasibility studies a challenge. We can provide the temporary power and electrical distribution systems you need – saving you the expense of investing in costly equipment. Once your mine has the green light, our engineers can work with you to suggest the best power, heating,cooling, compressed air and dehumidification for setting up camp sites and building your facilities.

Full steam ahead

A mine can be a boon to investors and the local economy. But running one can be expensive. That’s why we’ll only supply the power you need, adapting quickly to provide more when you’re busy – or less if things slow down.

We can also monitor your generators to make sure you get the most from them, together with keeping an eye on fuel usage to help you manage costs. And if glitches do happen, we can step in quickly to put things right. Safety is essential, too. That’s why we follow the highest standards around the world – keeping things safe at all times.

Bringing things to a close

When a mine comes to the end of its natural life there’s still a lot of work to do. We know that dismantling a power plant with the minimum of fuss is just as important as a hassle-free installation. Our technicians have years of experience in decommissioning mines. We can advise you on the quickest, safest and most cost-efficient way to bring things to a close. 

 

Quality, Health, Safety and Environment

Aggreko recognises that occupational health and safety are critical issues for its mining customers worldwide. That’s why we adhere to the highest standards around the world.
