Anglo American’s Moranbah North Mine
All critical drawings updated + returned within 24-hours, guaranteed
Anglo American’s Moranbah North Mine (MNM) is home to one of the largest coal reserves in the world. Successfully operating for more than 20 years as an underground mine in Central Queensland, the site must maintain the accuracy of their engineering drawings at all times to ensure the continued safety of their personnel.
Waterline provides full remote support to MNM with a 24-hour turnaround drafting package, ensuring compliance with Queensland’s mining regulations and providing confidence that accurate drawings are available to their team in real-time, whether onsite or remote.
The mining environment is dynamic. Infrastructure and equipment changes are happening constantly onsite, and these changes must be reflected in the site’s Engineering Drawings ASAP.
Maintaining compliance with Queensland’s mining regulations relating to drawings of electrical installations can be stressful – especially if you’re the electrical engineering manager. You’re under cost pressure, which means having an onsite drafter dedicated to updating engineering drawings is simply not an option. If you task internal personnel based on their availability, you put your critical drawings at risk of issues with quality assurance, efficiency, auditability and inaccurate engineering information. If you task an external drafter, you are subject to their existing workload, which may see you fall outside of the legislative 8-day requirement for drawings to be updated and accessible to the team who rely on them for their operational and maintenance activities.
“Since engaging Waterline’s 24-hour turnaround drafting services, we’ve seen significant benefits across both our engineering department and our trades in the field. We are now confident that we have reliable updates of our critical drawings, easily accessible by all our teams. This means that the safety and efficiency of our tradespeople and engineers is improved. If we’re audited, we have a reliable and easy system to present. Our dedicated DMS specialist, Bronwen, feels like part of our team – she is super helpful and available to us 24/7. We also appreciate that the drafters understand mining operations and we don’t have to spend time giving them detailed instructions. Overall, this service is now essential to our operation.”
