Heavy duty switchgear for Goedehoop CollieryDart Admin
Gauteng-based JB Switchgear Solutions was recently awarded a contract for skid-mounted motor control centres at a project site of one of the major coal mining companies near Middelburg. This brownfields project is a development of an existing shaft and entails two special 1000V skid mounted MCCs manufactured from 5mm thick steel plate, for the incline conveyor and the trunk conveyor. These heavy-duty outdoor MCCs contain 250kW DOL starters, and a number of smaller circuits for pumps, lighting and small power.
In addition, there is also a 525V surface fan MCC containing a number of 250kW variable speed drives and smaller, peripheral circuits.
In this case, JB Switchgear’s popular ‘EAGLE’ series panels are supplied.
