Oz Minerals Carrapateena Mine
The Carrapateena mine is a large copper mine under development 100km southeast of Olympic Dam in South Australia’s Far North region.
Jaymel was approached by Oz Minerals to design and install a range of air conditioning systems for their facility in the Carrapateena Mine. Being in such a remote area of South Australia, approx. 500km from Adelaide, the main challenge for this project was distance, and ensuring that the design and project management was flawless to make sure installation was a smooth process. This was achieved by breaking the project down in stages.
