A breath of fresh air

Ventilation is a complex and vital component of any underground mine. Our main area of focus when ventilating an underground mine is worker safety: making sure airflow is sufficient in quantity and quality. In addition to safety, our team understands the interdependency between a mine’s ventilation system, achieving production goals, and energy efficiency.

Energy savings to minimize greenhouse gas emissions

We design efficient mine ventilation systems, from concept level through to execution. Our team has experience designing main fans, auxiliary ventilation, natural cooling, refrigeration and heating, ventilation on demand, and heat recovery systems. We focus on energy savings and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions—two components of our Sustainable Mining by DesignTM vision.

Breathe easy with safe, reliable underground ventilation

Ventilation systems are the largest consumers of power in underground mines—accounting for upward of 50% of energy use. Our solutions allow mines to save on energy costs while ensuring miners receive clean air where and when they need it.

Smart, by nature

Our designs employ the latest smart digital technologies to monitor and optimize ventilation systems and ensure a safe working environment. Our ventilation team enjoys tackling challenges head-on, getting to the root of issues to solve them quickly and effectively—with the aim of delivering the best quality design and solution.
