Water Management Infrastructure
UON was engaged by BHP to supply, install and commission major dewatering infrastructure and transfer system for the new mining area.
Pieces of equipment
Hours worked LTI-free
This extensive dewatering project has contributed greatly to the lower carbon footprint and commercial viability of this mine as a whole. The efficiency of the solution saved a considerable amount of fuel and allowed the accessing of the ore body in a timely manner.
- 6 dewatering bores and downhole infrastructure
- 31km coextruded HDPE pipe including 25Km of DN710
- 10ML turkey nest dam including HDPE liner, associated pipe work and fencing
- Transfer pump station
- Standpipe pump station
- Flow monitoring station
- Switch room and control room
Supply and Installation of Power Station for Underground Mining
The FMG magnetite iron-ore mine was a new trial mine.
The key success of the rapid-deployment 6 MW / 11 kV power station was the modularization and flexibility of all equipment provided as part of UON’s complete solution
UON were tasked with delivering a dewatering solution for an old mine being reactivated, via an existing ventilation shaft.
UON was contracted to design, manufacture and install a pontoon system to dewater over 7 Billion litres from an old open pit mine.
The key success of the Rapid-Deployment 30MW Power Station was UON’s time management and orchestrated scheduling of people and plant.
