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, refuelling machinery can quickly turn into unnecessary downtime and increased servicing intervals. The challenge faced with most existing systems ties directly to fuelling and servicing areas being located off-circuit. On-circuit or in-pit storage solutions reduce travel time to and from these manned refuelling 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 refuelling modules and an unmanned robotic refuelling system for safe and speedy refuelling of heavy equipment. Both innovations significantly reduce refuelling time, keeping your mining operation on the move.
