Mine Winders

Supply only of AC and DC motors and M-G sets through to engineering, supply and installation of complete winder systems up to 3850kW. Many of our applications use Toshiba DC motors which can be found throughout mining installations in Australia. Typical of the recent projects for which Toshiba equipment has been used are: -

  • Supply, installation and commissioning of an 815kW mine winder drive and control system for Peak gold Mines, Cobar, NSW
  • Supply of a 3000kW mine winder drive and control system at Pasminco, NBHC, Broken Hill, NSW.


Two of the largest and most interesting conveyor applications in Australia use Drives and control systems designed and supplied by Toshiba. These are: -

  • A bauxite conveyor system at Worsley Alumina in Western Australia comprising two flights of a total length of approximately 50 km driven by four DC motors with a total capacity of approximately 10,500 kW.
  • A coal conveyor in New South Wales with a length of approximately 12 km driven by two AC wound rotor motors of 1500 kW with liquid rheostat controllers.
