Mining is essential to countless industries all over the world and 500,000 Americans rely on these jobs for their livelihood. We’ve been a leader in the industry for over 35 years.
Keep Your Equipment Safe and Your People Safer
Given that miners have to operate heavy machinery to do their jobs, with the increased power requirements, there’s also increased risk. Arc blasts and arc flashes can happen if a piece of equipment isn’t grounded properly. We have found most accidents happen when crews assume the equipment is grounded without thorough testing. Assuring your system has the ability to effectively dissipate energy through the earth is important not only for the safety of your employees but also for the long term health of your equipment.
Surface Mining Emergency at Lehigh Cement
Lehigh Cement is a leading producer of cement materials and bagged cement in North America. With dozens of locations across the United States and Canada they have been an excellent partner for over a decade.
What resulted was a month-long project where teams of 10-12 technicians worked alternating 12 hour shifts for 30 days straight. Every piece of equipment including 2 transformers and electrical switchgear that had been completely submerged, had to be extricated, cleaned of mud and silt, dried out and put back together.
Working quickly to remove the equipment and get it dry the team was able to fix each and every piece of equipment saving the client tens of thousands of dollars. This happened in 2008 and we continue to work with this client doing annual maintenance on this plant and their sister facilities as well responding to 5-10 callouts each year.
