The switchroom, which was fitted out by PES in its Brisbane workshop, completed a 1000km journey by truck to Vale’s Carborough Downs mine, near Moranbah in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

PES was awarded the contract for the switchroom by project manager Ausenco in November 2008.

Switchgear was supplied by NHP and variable speed drives by ABB to ensure compatibility with existing plant equipment.
