Case Study – Containerised Substation UK Resources Tunnelling Project

Ampcontrol have been contracted as the sole supplier for a large resources tunnelling project and are set to deliver a range of equipment, cable and maintenance services throughout the construction phase of the project.

Designed to supply power to tunnel surface operations including a welding factory, the containerised substation developed by Ampcontrol will act as the main distribution system on-site.

Design, Auditing, Testing and Analysis

Protection system analysis, HV condition and compliance audits and reporting, Earth grid testing, Power quality, harmonic and energy analysis, Fibre network testing. Ampcontrol’s highly qualified, certified and skilled engineering teams provide a comprehensive range of testing, analysis, auditing and reporting for customers to ensure their operations are compliant and working at optimal levels.

1000V Jumbo Starter

Ampcontrol’s 1000V Jumbo Starter is designed specifically for hard rock mining applications.
It is fitted with Ampcontrol’s PF1 and OTS technologies.

Longwall Safety Systems

Ampcontrol’s Longwall Safety System provides emergency stop, remote isolation and broadcast messaging to maintain safety whilst maximising production on longwalls.
With Ex ia approval and over 10 years of operational history, the system is easily deployable in Group I hazardous areas.

Modular Electrical Switchrooms

Ampcontrol’s modular electrical switchrooms are custom built to suit any industrial, mining and utility power distribution applications.
Ampcontrol have supplied modular switchrooms to every industry and environment in Australia including open cut mines, network substations, infrastructure projects and processing operations.

Modular MV Power Factor Correction Systems

Ampcontrol’s modular medium voltage PFC system and capacitor bank solutions are suitable for all energy intensive applications and environments including surface and underground mining, industrial operations and distribution utility networks.

Modular Substations

Customised footprint design for switchroom, switchyard and transformer installations. Ampcontrol’s modular substations are a proven and viable alternative to building concrete, brick and mortar substations. The modular design suits applications such as zone and radial substations. These modular substations are designed, manufactured, assembled, wired and operationally tested in our workshop before being shipped as a packaged system ready for assembly on site.

Outlet Test System (OTS)

Ampcontrol’s OTS is a fully automated, comprehensive outlet testing facility that eliminates paper-based record keeping.
Designed specifically for the hard rock mining industry, the OTS tests and validates the positive operation of the protection functions outlined in AS/NZS2081 and clearance times for earth leakage protection.

Power Transformers

We specialise in high, medium and low voltage power transformers for transmission and distribution substations, industrial and commercial supply networks, above ground mine site systems and transportable substations.

Rectifier Transformer (Rectiformer)

Ampcontrol’s custom designed rectiformers, high power transformers and rectifiers are built for the continuous high loads and occasional system faults associated with typical traction, refining and smelting applications.
