UON was contracted to supply “whole of mine” power and dewatering services for Nova Resources in Nullagine, Western Australia. This included managing a bore field that spanned over 100km with integrated pipework and a network of open pits that required dewatering as well. The Nullagine operation required a dynamic approach. UON deployed permanent back-to-back technicians onsite to provide continuous operations and ensure that Nullagine had continuous flow of water and delivery of power.
Pieces of equipment
The key success of this project was the performance of the Generator Motor Controller (GMC) Generators. Due to the expanse and remote nature of the bore field, being able to save considerable amounts of fuel due to the integration of the GMC also reduced the amount of time re-fuelling trucks had to be dispatched. The GMC also allowed smaller generators to be deployed, which enabled the onsite HIAB to manoeuvre the majority of equipment rather than having to deploy a crane.
