Risks & Consequences

Fires in Mines are linked to flammable liquids, electrically energized equipment and combustible gas or dust. Incidents can take place across work areas and operations. Left unattended, they can spread throughout the mine and escalate massively. Harsh operating conditions and remoteness add more complexity to an already challenging hazard. This is why these type of fires can put lives at risk and cause severe damage to high value assets. While, a rare occurrence, if and when they take place, they can be catastrophic.

The Task

Design, install and commission reliable automatic fire suppression systems for the protection of various key assets such as as SMVA 3 Phase Transformers, Gyratory Crusher motor control and MVSG Panel located at Primary Crusher area. Additionally, Cyclone Pumps Incoming Panel, Main Motor Starter Panel, Cyclone Pumps VFD, LV Transformer and MEIC VFD Panel for Flotation Blowers all located at Ball Mill 8 & 9 area. These assets are fully utilized and are mission critical for mining operations. The task is to protect them as well as safeguard the work force operating them. Compact, modular and durable solutions are required to suppress fire incidents while significantly reducing the risk of collateral damage.
