New Acland Coal Mine

In January 2011, Minetek and New Acland Coal commenced a partnership that would redefine noise management in mining. The initial phase involved an exhaustive site analysis, including all fixed and mobile machinery and plant equipment. Over four weeks, Minetek's dedicated team worked tirelessly, even during weekends and nights, to minimise disruptions to New Acland Coal's day-to-day operations.

The comprehensive analysis involved detailed discussions with maintenance, environmental, and management groups. Minetek spent countless hours collaborating with the New Acland team to ensure a thorough understanding of the requirements before installing sound packages. This meticulous approach guaranteed that every solution was effective and tailored to meet the unique needs of the operational team at New Acland Coal.
