THE SCOPE | To deliver a broad range of electrical engineering and construction services, with installation and a full testing and evaluation program – whilst meeting a critical timeline and budget.
The Appin coal mine, located 100km Southwest of Sydney, is one of the most productive underground coal mines in Australia. To enable a major expansion the mine required a major increase in its underground ventilation.
RJE were engaged to design and construct a system to power one of the largest single vent raise installations in Australia to date. The project required the design and construction of a new 5 bay 66kV substation, the substation was designed as a modular built system. RJE undertook all civil, structural and electrical works. RJE then undertook the design and construction of the three 6000kw drive systems to power the fan systems.
