Mobile container platform - a set of two hoisting machines of B-3000/AC-6m/s type, designed for driving of single-ended mining shaft hoists.

Innovative vertical transport solution

Project co-financed by the European Union

Description of the solution:

The mobile container platform, consisting of 18 prefabricated containers housing the machine subassemblies, ready-made foundation blocks and frames, eliminates the necessity to erect a permanent building infrastructure and permanent foundations in the workplace of the platform. The containers and the foundation blocks are easy and quick to assemble and dismantle thanks to the application of specialist connectors.

The container-type hoisting machine included in the mobile container platform can be a part of a shaft hoist intended to use mainly during sinking and/or deepening of shafts and for performing of all sorts of specialist shaft works. As a drive for a mining shaft hoist, the machine can be operated in the following modes: manriding, production, service, as well as shaft inspection and other shaft work.

The application of the innovative solutions results in 78% reduction in total time (up to a maximum of 2 months) and in 89% reduction in total cost of:

  • installation of the platform in its workplace (with a 63% reduction in the installation area to 280 m2),
  • preparation, while putting into operation and dismantling at the end of the service life.

Thanks to the application of a highly efficient AC driving system, the assumed goals related to energy consumption and the impact on the power grid, have been achieved.
