Shovel Motivator

Location
Goonyella Riverside Mine
Client
BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA)

BMA required a mobile power supply unit to power the movement of electric shovels during relocation around their mine site.

The conventional method employed to move a Shovel any significant distance required the time consuming and costly task of managing the trailing cables to ensure the Shovel is powered at all times. A mobile, trailer mounted generator system that could be easily towed while attached to the Shovel during the moving process was required by the client to eliminate the above management issues. The system developed, designed and implemented by Wave as part of their overall project management brief allowed the productivity and safety benefits to be realized by the client.
