As metal prices have fallen, mines are under increasing pressure to reduce costs across all areas of operation while remaining productive and efficient. On a typical mining site, refueling machinery can quickly turn into unnecessary downtime and increased servicing intervals. The challenge faced with most existing systems ties directly to fueling and servicing areas being located off-circuit. On-circuit or in-pit storage solutions reduce travel time to and from these manned refueling stations. They also enable trucks to complete up to an additional cycle per shift while reducing servicing costs and intervals.
With relocatable container tanks, fuel monitoring and management, filtration, tank farms, and more, Western Global offers a range of configurable storage solutions tailored to the mining industry. These include the TransTank fuel bullet in-pit servicing and refueling modules and an unmanned robotic refueling system for safe and speedy refueling of heavy equipment. Both innovations significantly reduce refueling time, keeping your mining operation on the move.
