The company said the accreditation will enable the Mackay office to perform certified repairs and modifications of flameproof mining equipment and non-flameproof electrical equipment in Mackay.
According to i.Power Solutions’ Mackay branch manager, Tony Muguira, the accreditation of the workshop, coupled with the installation of 1kV, 3.3kV and 11kV test power supplies will give the company’s operations a significant technical edge in the mining electrical overhaul business.
“i.Power Solutions is the first electrical overhaul workshop in Mackay where employees have competencies to AS4761- (competencies for working with electrical equipment for hazardous areas),” he said.
“For customers, this means i.Power Solutions personnel and procedures will satisfy the requirements of Coal Mining Safety and Health legislation.”
The accreditation coincides with the company’s entry into the longwall market in collaboration with British based manufacturer, Baldwin and Francis.
The Mackay branch provides manufacturing, engineering design, site service and now, electrical repair and overhaul, to the mining industry.
Based in Brisbane, Australia, i.Power Solutions provides professional engineering, contracting and project management services to companies located across the globe.
