Moranbah North Coal Mine had become dependent on using development substations in mined panels in order to maintain area lighting, requiring the purchase of additional substations. When the company was looking for a cost effective lighting alternative, it turned to Ampcontrol for a solution.
The Ampcontrol team designed and manufactured a fit for purpose 11kV to 110V lighting enclosure to facilitate extra lighting along with 110V circuit connections for the site. The solution maintained the power to the lighting at a much lower cost than a typical substation. This lighting power solution provided power and featured our IS LED Longwall Mine Light while freeing up a substation so it could be used for the purpose for which it was designed.
