WATER EVAPORATOR Emergency Response


In extreme weather events, it is essential to have an emergency water management plan in place to protect the safety of workers and the community. While some risks, such as flooding, can be difficult to prevent, others, such as dam collapse, can be mitigated by having a quick response plan in place.

Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters in the world, accounting for 39% of all such disasters since 2000. It affects more than 94 million people each year, causing them to be displaced from their homes, exposing them to unsafe drinking water, and putting them at risk of injury or death. The increasing population density in flood-prone areas makes the accurate forecasting of floods essential to disaster management and preparation. Flood forecasts provide vital information that can be used to evacuate people to safety, protect property and critical infrastructure, and save lives. Early warning systems that make use of technology such as satellite imagery and weather radar can give communities advance notice of an impending flood, giving them time to take action to minimize the damage.

The water evaporator emergency response to and recovery from unplanned water management incidents is vital in the industry to maintaining operational, economic and environmental efficiency. Extreme weather events including excessive rainfall or rapidly changing climatic conditions can negatively impact operations, reducing a mine's ability to operate in the short term or even worse, permanently.

Similarly, water evaporator emergency response operational oversights including overflowing pit lakes or catastrophic infrastructure failures including dam bursts create significant risks to mining site operators around the world.

To reduce these risks, MINETEK has developed rapid-response capabilities with the potential to react to water emergencies anywhere around the world with an experienced, dedicated team on standby 24/7.

Our water evaporators and pit dewatering systems provide a cost-effective, short-term solution to manage pit flooding and overflowing containments, enabling mines to quickly return to operation and reduce costly downtime.

Good product with great service leads to a great outcome. My dealings with MINETEK WATER and their supply and service of evaporator fans was one of high quality. I installed 10 evaporator fans on climate control to maximise efficiency and the results were incredible. From the first meeting through to commissioning nothing was a problem for the MINETEK WATER team. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with water disposal issues.

After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.
