Mineral Resources Limited (MRL) is an Australian based mining services and processing company, with many years’ experience in the mining services sector.

MRL and its subsidiaries offer a range of general mine services, contract crushing, infrastructure provision and recovery of base metals concentrate for export.

Client Requirement

The customer required a 6- day back-up power system for their pipeline Remote Telemetry Unit (RTU) alarm system, which reports any failure in the gas pipeline. The 6 day back-up was needed as the area the system is being deployed in is classified as a “Severe Tropical Cyclone” region, (located 90 kilometres south of Port Hedland).

In case of such weather, the system has been designed and certified as category D (highest cyclone protection). The site itself is very remote, which is why the customer opted for battery backed-up solar power. It is located approx. 500 kilometres from the nearest town, so diesel generated power was impractical due to the distance to refuel.
