Alaska Structures manufactures highly durable and versatile tailings pond enclosures to help mining companies reduce the environmental impact of their operations, while providing the necessary protection from the elements.
Mining is an industry that spans the globe. It places people and equipment in in all environments, often in some of the most remote places, where conditions push the envelope for sustained human activity or survival.
It’s important to have proper shelter for equipment and employees when working out in the elements. You want to protect workers and the machines to operate our business at maximum efficiency. Not doing so will results in setbacks that increase operating costs, causing a loss in profits. GTX Series Buildings are a good option in maintaining the health of workers and the longevity of the machines. The buildings have a host of standard and custom features that ensure they will protect assets. The GTX Series buildings can be used in most industries, giving you flexibility and many possibilities.
Australia's mining industry is suffering serious losses, which will lead to operation cuts and job losses. Reports say the industry is facing one of its most difficult periods. Leaders in the industry must find solutions to maximize efficiency while cutting costs. Fabric buildings provide a solution to the industry crisis Australia is currently facing. Fabric buildings are a lot cheaper to set up and maintain than traditional buildings. This allows managers to build mining sites at a lower cost. Alaska Structures offer two fabric buildings the MTX and HGX series. Both are portable, durable, and customizable to address mining needs.
Mining operations can be costly and difficult, leaving managers looking for ways to increase productivity. A fast-pace industry, often operations must move from site to site with the equipment. Because of this, customization and design flexibility is important to protect equipment and have mobility. Traditionally, sites have used concrete and steel buildings to perform their mining tasks. Concrete and steel buildings are definitely durable, but don’t leave room for site to site movement. Fabric buildings are durable as well as portable, for maximum efficiency. This guide highlights the strengths and weaknesses of mining buildings to find the best solution for mining operators.
As technology advances, mining operators rely on it more to help managing their sites. One tool can now predict time-to-failure of mining machines, however it is expensive. It relies on sensors and scientists to decode the data. Managers may not be able to make room for IT solutions in their operational budgets, but can still monitor their machines. Using the RAM metric can help prevent machine breakdowns. With proper upkeep, machines will last to their full potential, while failure time predictions do nothing for the machines. Updating buildings is the first step in upkeeping machines since they protect them; strength and durability are key.
With the growing demand for resources, mining operations must run as smoothly as possible. An issue with mining sites is having a lot of downtime. Managers have options to cut downtime and increase productivity of mines. One option is using real-time performance management systems, which can share data throughout the company. Another option is preventive planning to find weak points in operations. Finally, efficient buildings will minimize downtime. Fabric buildings are a good option when increasing building efficiency. They offer a lot at a fraction of the price of traditional buildings.
