In order to achieve optimum mine efficiency and operational effectiveness, it is critical that current and forecasted infrastructure and utilities are developed correctly.
Pipe work used for channelling and transporting a wide variety of components, including compressed gas and water, to underground operations are a critical and ultimately costly feature of any mine.
With our advanced surveying and modelling techniques we can provide a comprehensive analysis and critical assessment of mine infrastructure and utilities, to help you optimise the efficiency of your working systems. By analysing data points collected with our scanning technology, we can create accurate 3D models of the systems currently in place. This provides unique and extremely useful information for engineering projects where our as-built models save time and money in the design and construction phases.
Ventilation is one of mining’s greatest overheads, jagged, uneven tunnels mean slower air flow that require more energy, and therefore cost, to maintain airflow.
Using cutting edge processing abilities, we can provide accurate simulations of airflow through any given system and assess friction values of air within tunnels. Once this has been achieved we can advise on pinch points and in doing so, help to radically reduce the costs of ventilation energy expenditure.
Our laser scan surveys and data processing of existing utilities and infrastructure provide 3D models and interactive design data for engineers that can be used for undertaking repairs or alterations to an area of a mine.
In providing this visual map, work can be conducted with less time needed to source and locate the target areas and therefore increase the efficiency of the operation.
Cutting edge laser scanning technology allows us to generate virtual as-built models of infrastructure, as opposed to traditional 2D design plans, so we can help to effectively eliminate potential expensive errors in a construction phase. By surveying a construction site with millimetre accuracy, we can provide revolutionary cost saving design plans that effectively eliminate the potential for error in building operations.
Guess work and inaccurate estimations are a thing of the past with our laser scanned plans and 3D modelling processes. Infrastructure can now be tailored to fit the necessary areas for construction and the need for corrective work is eliminated in the initial planning period – reducing time, man power and ultimately cost.
