It is essential for the mining operators that their solutions for provides a safe and reliable power in dusty, harsh and sometimes explosive environments. Due to these circumstances, mining machines work continuously in very demanding conditions, and often require high voltages. Large scale excavation equipment for open-cut mines, such as electric power shovels and large scale conveyors, require trailing, level-wind cable reels and slip rings at the rotating joints. Moreover – equipment used for hard rock and underground mining not only requires compact cable management systems there is also a need for mobile power for shotcrete machines, blast-hole drills, ceiling bolters, and other underground equipment.
