Ampcontrol says it has significantly expanded its presence and skilled workforce in Western Australia, relocating to larger facilities in Kewdale to meet industry demand for mine site electrification.
In addition to moving to a new 9,500 sq.m manufacturing site, Ampcontrol has expanded its services to include a cable workshop, bringing more than 20 years of cable service and management experience to customers in Western Australia.
The expansion of Ampcontrol services in Western Australia follows the company announcement on September 27 of a new company vision to lead the global energy revolution with strategic plans for growth and expansion into new markets, geographic locations, and innovative energy transition solutions for the resources sector.
Ampcontrol is focused on diversifying and growing the business with a key focus on renewable energy manufacturing and how it can support customers in decarbonisation and mine site electrification.
Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol Managing Director & CEO, said: “We want to collaborate with our customers to help them solve their most complex problems in energy. With an industry-wide push towards decarbonisation, it is a natural progression in the growth of our business to extend our service offerings to support mine sites in Western Australia to meet both customer and industry needs.”
Local access to cable products and services from Ampcontrol will support surface applications and underground applications with decarbonisation efforts, with a fully stocked store of spare parts and consumables for cables, the company says. With the industry-wide push in Western Australia seeing machines becoming electrified, additional engineering designs and functions need to be used.
Customers in Western Australia will have local access to Cable Track, an Ampcontrol product that provides a full lifecycle of cables from new to grave, which will assist mine sites with forward planning their assets and future-proofing their business.
From the sale and repair of power cables to the development of transportation solutions and predictive and preventative maintenance programs, Ampcontrol says it can devise a custom cable systems management approach to suit any site, including mining, tunnelling, defence and industrial applications.
Henderson added: “Ampcontrol has been working with cables for more than 20 years; we bring an abundance of domain expertise on cable management systems which will be applied locally in Western Australia. We have the people, the equipment, the cable management expertise using the latest repair techniques and philosophies as we collaborate with customers to aid their decarbonisation efforts.”
