Howden has signed a new partnership with VortexOHS™, a modular ventilation and occupational hygiene data collection and management system.
This partnership, Howden says, further strengthens the ventilation expert’s commitment to mine ventilation solutions for the health and safety of customers worldwide.
Howden’s Ventsim Design and Ventsim Control products help ensure mines can efficiently design and provide airflow, heating and cooling to underground environments offering a safe atmosphere for workers. At the same time, VortexOHS further improves safety by assisting ventilation and occupational hygiene professionals to collect, manage and report data and information from their occupational health and safety (OH&S) sampling programs.
The partnership is a perfect fit for Howden’s mission to offer new safety solutions and achieve excellence in mine ventilation design, monitoring, and control, the company said.
Howden’s Hugo Dello Sbarba said: “Ventsim accurately models, designs, controls, evaluates, and optimises underground mine ventilation systems. Expanding Ventsim capabilities to incorporate VortexOHS’ innovative solutions provides a powerful tool for mine operators to improve safety and ensure compliance with regulations.”
VortexOHS’ Shane Ambrosio said: “I have enjoyed assisting mines in improving the efficiency and speed of their OH&S system and reporting. We are looking to continue building the existing VortexOHS success, thanks to the collaboration with Howden and the Ventsim suite of products integration.”
