The importance of temperature-controlled mine cooling in summer

Energy Power Systems Australia (EPSA) is poised to fire up its temperature control capability as the summer months approach.

EPSA has a proven track record in the deployment of temperature control equipment to mine sites around Australia that offer mine operators the commercial flexibility along with the latest technology in cooling equipment utilising a modular design approach which can be tailored to meet site specific standards.

Terry Knott, EPSA’s rental business development manager who travels across the eastern seaboard of Australia, says, “EPSA delivers temperature control solutions that improve underground working conditions for the operators and equipment with either vent shaft cooling, process water cooling or underground spot cooling packages that ultimately have a positive impact on production and operator safety.

“The attraction of rental solutions is that mine operators can opex the expense of the mine cooling package and focus the capital budget on other mining related projects.”

Mine sites across Australia typically start locking in their cooling requirements during the months of autumn to ensure a delivered and operating cooling package ahead of the hot season.

“Mine operations get the reliability of Cat power equipment along with modular options that are quick to deploy, install and commission,” says Knott.

EPSA, from years of experience and collaboration with mining industry experts in this field, have developed mine-compliant equipment for both surface and underground operations which meets and exceeds the stringent mining standards.

“EPSA offers expert industry design and electrical engineering, and the equipment is maintained and serviced by us,” Knott explains.

The advantages of EPSA’s Cat Rental Power solutions are: remote monitoring, modular design, fast deployment, service and support for the duration of the rental term.
