According to Wikipedia “Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, from an ore body, vein or (coal) seam. The term also includes the removal of soil. Materials recovered by mining include base metals, precious metals, iron, uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash.”
Most of the biggest and lucrative mining projects happen in the wilderness (deserts, mountains, etc) – where the power grid is absent. Mining projects in these far-flung locations where precious metals are found and need to be extracted depend on onsite power generators. With the use of onsite power generators – companies have gone into remote locations with teams of engineers and heavy drilling equipment – stayed there for months in a row mining the precious underground material.
Diesel generators play an important role in the mining industry. Diesel generators are reliable – can go on for long working hours – in the most challenging conditions. This makes them ideal for the construction and mining industry. Large drills, excavating machinery, huge shovels, etc all run on diesel generators.
The mining industry is very highly dependent on onsite power generators. Uninterrupted power supply is important for the health and safety of people who are involved in these huge projects. Harmful gases like CO2, CO, methane, etc is found beneath the surface of the earth. When miners and engineers are working below the surface of earth – air quality monitoring equipment powered by onsite power generators plays a critical role in the health and safety of these people.
Clearly – both machines and human life depends on these onsite power generators at mining locations. Worldwide Power Products has helped several clients – directly and indirectly associated with mining projects nationwide. Please contact us today and we will be happy to help your firm.
