With expertise across a range of electrical solutions for hard rock mining, we’re headed to Perth on Friday November 1, 2019 for the inaugural Mine Electrical Safety WA Conference.
Delegates can head to our exhibition stand and view our newest product offerings including Rockstarter, our multi-function outlet starter. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear about the latest developments around our fibre optic networking solution H3RO and learn why our Australian made oil and dry type transformers are the superior option on a mine site.
Ampcontrol’s Oil Services Manager Philip Reilly is presenting his most recent paper at the conference titled: Assessment and Management of Ageing Oil Filled High Voltage Transformers.
Ampcontrol Group member company CPS National will also be joining us on the stand to showcase their range of remote area solutions including the Solar Cube and breakthrough water solution Gilghi.

Following their win of Scottish Engineering’s 2019 President’s Award in May, and recent upgrade to its sales and service operation in the UK, Ampcontrol UK’s continued growth has seen it expand its Scottish based manufacturing facilities with a new, additional facility being secured at the Port of Ayr.
The facility will enhance Ampcontrol’s UK operations ability to service key customers in mining, infrastructure and industrial sectors both in the UK and abroad. In particular, its location at one of Associated British Ports (ABP) key regional transport hubs will improve transport links with customers.
Steven Edmund, Managing Director of Ampcontrol UK, said “The new facility is a real testament to our team as we have continued to successfully execute our strategy to grow and diversify our business. Using our core electrical engineering and manufacturing capabilities to solve complex problems for new and existing customers is part of our DNA, and this new facility will increase our ability to do just that.”
Stuart Cresswell, ABP Port Manager at Ayr and Troon, said “We’re pleased to welcome the Steve and all of this team at Ampcontrol to our Port of Ayr. Many locals will recall that they have had a long history of supporting the town’s industry and we look forward to working with them on this new development, which is another positive step towards ensuring future economic prosperity of the region.”
