Early immersion in the planning and design allows the MTV team to undertake comprehensive analysis of the environment and ventilation requirements, make accurate calculations, and create designs that facilitate ongoing expansion of the system where required.
MTV’s project experience extends from the construction of some of Australia’s most significant civil tunnel works, to a portfolio of demanding underground mines.

1x AL28-5000 415V 500kw Vertical Fan; 1x Twin AL28-5000 415V 500kw
Approached with a request to modify their existing ventilation system to increase pressure across the mine, MTV devised a cost-effective solution where two Korfmann AL22-2500 fans were added to the existing parallel fans to create twin fans in series.
A unique configuration of four MTV 1400-132kw fans in parallel, with three always in operation and one available for safety and maintenance purposes. Modular manufacturing technique allowed for easy transport and rapid installation at depth of 500m.
