Cooling the interior of a mine with difficult access

The challenge: Quickly cool the interior of an underground mine, using a turn-key solution installed in a difficult access area.

One of the world’s largest gold producers needed to increase production at a mine located in the north of the state of Goiás.

Before its plans for expansion, the high temperature inside the mine was already a major problem, affecting the operation of the equipment and putting employees’ health at risk.

The expansion of the mine with the installation of more equipment would further aggravate the situation. In addition to all this, the fact that it is an underground mine made it very difficult to implement an efficient solution.

The company urgently needed to cool the mine’s internal temperature, which compromised the productivity, working conditions and its plans for expansion.
