Ventech VU 15 is a radio controlled, multifunctional vehicle that provides rapid and efficient local ventilation when needed, fume analysis and first on site tunnel profile inspection directly after a blast.
Project Problem Statement:
Ventilation related costs stands for around one third of all expenditures for running an underground mine. It is estimated that you lift as much air as ore out of the mine - measured in kilograms, which requires enormous amounts of energy and time.
How to decrease production down time, improve flexibility and safety and how to minimize energy losses in connection to ventilation after blasting
