KEY SUCCESS

UON were tasked with delivering a dewatering solution for an old mine being reactivated, via an existing ventilation shaft. This required a custom shaft cap to be designed and fabricated to facilitate two 147 kW submersible pumps, installed to a depth of 300 m. Additional telemetry was provided to monitor multiple level sensing probes and to enable full remote access control.

  • 2 bore pump assemblies and associated downhole equipment
  • 2 dewatering bore head works and (Patent-Pending) UON GMC© Generators
  • Telemetry system and integration into SCADA system
  • Designed and built in 14 days
  • Installed in 6 days
