Containerised Switchrooms & Motor Control Centres

Rutherford Global Power containerised switch-rooms have been developed to distribute all ranges of power for heavy industry, construction and tunnelling projects and operations. The CSR provides a central hub for switching and protection.

 

HV Metal Clad Switchroom

RGP metal clad switch rooms are designed in line with power authority requirements to accept HV power from the power grid. They house the power authorities incoming HV circuit breaker and feed the supply or supplies to HV distribution equipment on site.

 

 

Containerised Substation

The CSS series unit has been designed to operate at medium voltages for construction projects. Commonly used in mining and tunnelling applications, the CSS is capable of distribution over long distances.

 

 

Compact Tunnel Substation

The CTS series unit has been designed to operate at medium voltages for construction projects. Commonly used in mining and tunnelling applications the CTS is capable of distribution over long distances.

 

 

Miniature Tunnel Substation

The MTS are ideal for tunnels with a need for low voltages such as 415V and 1000V. With Step-Up and Step Down capability the MTS is very versatile and a must have on sites where 415V needs to be distributed over distances.

 

Tunnel Lighting Systems

The Rutherford Global Power Tunnel Lighting System has been developed for the Tunnelling and Hard Rock Mining Industries.

It is a robust system using half the power of a Fluorescent Lighting System and has five times greater maintenance free life.

 

Mining Substation

Designed and manufactured in Australia these substations are available in all supply voltages up to 11kV and can be provided as a standard build or custom built to specific customer requirement. The mining substations offer increased protection options and are fully compliant to the latest standards.

 

Distribution Control Board

Commonly known as DCBs or Gate End Boxes these units are designed in Australia and provide the maximum protection for compact LV distribution centres at 415V and 1000V-1100V units. The DCB provides distribution for up to 8 outlets and can be the main LV hub in an area of operation.

 

LV Distribution Board

RGP can supply LV Distribution Boards that can be customised for any requirement and standard. LVDBs are inherently diverse and can range from large enclosed 4000A systems to small 63A distributions boxes.

 

Flameproof Equipment

Manufactured in Newcastle Australia our Flameproof Equipment are certified to the latest Australian Standards for Class 1 Zone 1 Exd Coal Mine Applications and can be used in any country that accepts international certifications. The units have a wide range of applications in hazardous areas such as pump starters and stations, continuous miners and road headers, feeder breakers, conveyor starters, and circuit breaker boxes.

 

Auxiliary Fan

RGP Auxiliary Fans are produced to our specification complying with Mines Regulations and are MDG3 compliant. The unit is designed to be an effective mobile fan station for the mining and tunnelling environment. Our Auxiliary Fans come in a range of blower power from 15m³/ sec to 23m³/sec, up to 160kW.

All units are constructed with a skid based fan assembly and come with a protective crash frame and wheel brackets for the fitting of 4 wheels for stability and an “A” type towing frame for ease of mobility.

 

Containerised Generator

RGP Containerised Generators are produced to our specification and can be custom built to comply with specific customer requirements. Our generator designs are available in a range of coordination’s that can provide the power requirements that are needed for the job. Our generator systems are modular and can be fed into a substation system to provide various voltage supplies. Stock units are available for short term or long term hire.

 

Section Isolator

Designed and manufactured in Australia the Section Isolator can distribute and isolate supply voltages up to 24kV. These units are built to the highest quality and provide the highest level of safety and protection. Commonly used in Mines to distribute and isolate sections of the mine.

 

HV Circuit Breaker

Designed and manufactured in Australia the Enclosed HV Circuit Breaker can distribute and isolate supply voltages up to 24kV. These units are built to the highest quality and provide the highest level of safety and protection. Type tested with a viable break on the circuit breaker and the earth switch there are also options for remote pendant operation.

 

Transformers

RGP transformers are produced to our specifications and comply with the latest standards. The transformers are used to convert to and from specific voltages and isolate from grid fault levels. We can provide a variety of different types of transformers from Dry Type to Oil filled Transformers in all sizes.

 

HV Cables

We are specialists in providing plug and play cable packages that are ready to install on your project or operation. High voltage cables can be fitted to a wide range of coupler or junction box sizes to suit your load and voltage from 3.3kV – 24kV couplers up to 800A. Provided on wooden or steel drums with standard or spacer drum options. We can comply to all types of cables from XLPE to trailing mining cables.

 

HV Couplers

Rutherford Global Power provides reliable and robust medium voltage cable connections suitable for mining, tunnelling and industrial applications. Ease of fitting and maintenance has been incorporated into our coupler design. They are manufactured using state of the art digital techniques which has resulted in superior mechanical attributes and exceptional electrical performance that exceeds the latest standards.
