Ampcontrol shows off new EV charger for mine electricifation

Hunter Valley electrical engineering manufacturer Ampcontrol has showcased a mine specification DC Electric Vehicle Charger at mine innovation event the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Sydney, NSW.

The company displayed a range of mining electrification solutions including Electric Vehicle Charging for mine sites at IMARC.

A number of DC chargers and DRIFTEX, the company’s mine site personnel carrier Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), support minesite decarbonisation.

These solutions work together to support emission reductions and increase personnel safety by removing diesel particulate matter and reducing noise underground.

Company Managing Director and CEO Rod Henderson said: “The future of mining is one of incredible diversification and opportunity.

“We are collaborating with and working alongside industry, continuing our legacy of innovation by delivering solutions that support the future; electrification solutions.”

Henderson said Ampcontrol, recently acquired by investment house Washington H. Soul Pattinson, had joined the Electric Mine Consortium (EMC) to drive real-world solutions of decarbonisation in the mining industry.

He said the company’s off-grid and stand-alone power systems (SPS) provided a self-sufficient, continuous and reliable power supply to isolated consumption sources, utilising technologies including solar PV panels, inverters and battery storage.

“Ampcontrol is adapting the award-winning Solar Qube SPS into a Green Hydrogen SPS system, a first of its kind in Australia.”
