High power fans for Ghanaian mine

December 13th, 2017, Published in Articles: Energize

TLT ACTOM has been awarded the main underground ventilation fans contract for the mining expansion project at Newmont Ghana Gold’s Subika mine in Ghana. The contract is for the manufacture and supply of two 850 kW axial flow underground ventilation fans. An additional two 185 kW bulk air cooler fans to serve the main shaft of Subika’s new underground mine will be supplied separately. Delivery of the fans commences in November this year and is scheduled to be completed in early-2018. To ensure that the ventilation solution provides higher efficiency while using less energy, a simpler design and installation plan for the fans was developed. These efficient fans will the benefit the mine by lowering operating costs, the company says.
