Press Release: Local Company Supplies Mill Expansion Project

Gauteng based JB Switchgear Solutions was recently awarded a contract for the design, manufacturing and supply of a range of electrical switchgear equipment to Gold 1 – New Kleinfontein Gold Mining Company’s Mill Expansion Project at their Modder East Operations.

JB Switchgears’ scope included a number of 525V-rated containerised motor control centres, an 11kV containerised switchboard and extension panel, as well as power and lighting transformers.

In this instance, their very popular ‘Eagle’ series panel design was used for the 525V MCC’s.  It is a robust, user-friendly system that carries IEC 61439-1/2, SANS 1973-1 and IEC/TR 61641 certification, and over 30 000 tiers have been installed in sites across the globe.  Starter sizes ranged between 0.55kW and 75kW, whilst VSD’s ranged between 45kW and 200kW.

The project essentially includes a New Ball Mill, a new Elution Plant, and an extension of the existing Carbon-In-Leach (CIL) Plant.  The 11kV Ball Mill Motor is rated at 3.3MW.
