PowerEarth hosted a one day earthing seminar on the 17th March 2016. The seminar, created specifically for mines, addressed concepts relating to earthing systems in mining environments. Earthing is often not well understood and can easily be misapplied. The current Australian Standards are not always clear on the requirements for a particular location leading to uncertainty and in some cases inadequate earthing.
The seminar was well received by all attendees with participants walking away with a clearer understanding of High Voltage Distribution, Lightning Protection, Testing & Hazard Assessment and Installation Maintenance.
Future seminars are planned to provide information to differing industry sectors to promote safe and efficient earthing systems consideration in all electrical system design.
