UON were engaged to design, supply, install, test and commission a turnkey 6 MW power station including remote monitoring, enabling development of a new underground mine. This was to be a BOOM operation (Build, Own, Operate and Manage) where the power station would be installed without the capital expenditure associated with purchasing the infrastructure.
Pieces of equipment
Scale of project
The key success of the rapid-deployment 6 MW power station was the modularization and flexibility of all equipment provided as part of UON’s complete solution, whilst meeting stringent mining specifications. This in turn minimized client interaction, client site resources and resultant client cost.
