COAL MINING:
Trolley-Assist Pantograph Transformer Line

PRODUCT: IP54-3900kVA

APPLICATION: Coal Mining

THE CHALLENGE

 
Open cast mine hauling activities have a high cost impact in terms of diesel usage. Output may also be considerably lower if these activities are carried out by diesel-only powered trucks. But if the trucks are designed to use both diesel and electric power, a trolley-assist power line can be applied to mine hauling activities.

By applying trolley-assist, mine hauling activities can save up to 50% in fuel cost, and improve the productivity of the fleet by 10% or more.

THE SOLUTION

 
We provided a trolley-assist solution to one of South Africa’s largest diversified resource groups. The truck automatically switches to electric mode when it detects and attaches to the overhead line powered by a pantograph transformer. And once the truck leaves the line, it switches back to diesel.

WE HAVE MOVED

Please note that we have moved from Honeydew to Chloorkop, Edenvale. We are now fully operational from our new premises – 24 August 2020
