- Safety and reliability at Tüprag
13 tonnes of gold are produced every year thanks to an efficient electrical distribution system which ensures more safety and reliability for gold mining at Tüprag.
The Challenge• Set up electrical infrastructure for the largest gold mine in Europe.
• Manage and control its electrical distribution system efficiently, reliably and safely.
• Create innovative solutions for specific needs such as removable substations to operate an electrical excavator and two electrical drillers.
“We have undertaken many projects with Schneider Electric since 2003 and it has developed into a successful partnership.”
The Solution• 90% of the electrical equipment at the Tüprag mine are built by Schneider Electric.
• A Schneider Electric field supervisor works on site at the Tüprag mine.
• Solutions for specific needs open new dimensions for the gold mining business. For example, a tailor-made E-House Skid Mobile Substation solution includes two removable electrical substations designed to feed an electrical excavator and two electrical drillers with remote monitoring functions.
