Cat dealers support your mining operation by offering:
For coal mining operations, coal mine methane (CMM) gas is a byproduct of coal formations in subterranean coal seams, and is released before or during active coal mining. Caterpillar has developed generators specifically for use with CMM gas. Implementing methods to use this gas as an alternative fuel can help:
Many mining operations take place in remote parts of the world where access to large electric utility feeds is either unavailable or requires significant investments in electrical transmission and distribution. Many of these same sites have easier access to a natural gas infrastructure, while others have discovered that liquefied natural has (LNG) is a cost-saving fuel alternative.
For coal mines, CMM emissions can be significantly decreased through the recovery and use of drained gas. The CMM is sequestered and used for fuel in reciprocating gas engine generators. This mature and proven technology is highly effective for gas mitigation and power generation. Trust Cat generators for mining Industry for your mining industry needs.
