ANGLO AMERICAN DAWSON MINE

  • Location: Moura QLD
    Year: 2013
    Project Overview:
    With the completion of the upgrades to Anglo’s Dawson mine at Moura, teething problems were found in the design of the Yard machine high voltage cable J-Boxes that feed the Coal Product stackers and reclaimers, With the Mid-Point J-Boxes far too low to the ground the water runoff was causing too high of a humidity problems within the old Mid-Point J-Boxes and at a working voltage of 22kv flash overs were occurring so for a quick fix the connections were taped to give air clearance but did not remove the water flooding problem.

    So in 2013 Ward operations won the contract to install new cables and re-route the 22kv feeders into newly position J-Boxes and the repositioning of the reeling cables terminations on the reeling cables and control cables into the 6 yard machines.

    This all had to be completed at schedule times as not to interfere with the production and staking of coal. This we achieved by being able to man the job with only qualified jointers to required numbers to complete the job on time.
