Iluka is an international mineral sands resource company and is involved in the exploration, project development, operations and marketing of mineral sands products.

A major part of Iluka’s production base is in Australia, with this particular Magellan Power system manufactured for the Capel Mineral Sands Mine, near Bunbury in Western Australia.

Client Requirement

The Capel Mineral Sands Mine owned existing Magellan Power chargers which were over 20 years old and were using NiCad batteries. An upgrade to the chargers and batteries was needed, and since the equipment worked reliably for 22 years the company engaged Magellan Power to again design and manufacture the replacement systems.
