Underground Mining Fan Stage Platform

Project Type

Mechanical Engineering

Project Location

Perth, WA

Project Duration

8 Months

CME Boilermaking Services approached McDowall Affleck to design a mobile fan stage platform to allow for safe installation and maintenance of a Clemcorp axial fan in underground mines. This was achieved through the design of adjustable saddles for supporting the fan on the frame, and two platform wings that fold in to allow for easy transport of the fan stage. The design also needed to be particularly robust to meet the demands of underground mining operations.
