Ventilation Engineering

Develop safe, cost-effective ventilation and air conditioning systems through detailed engineering studies and innovative simulation software

We have extensive experience in all aspects of ventilation and air conditioning design for underground facilities.

Starting with conceptual studies, our specialists identify the most feasible overall plan then conduct comprehensive engineering studies to help us produce a detailed ventilation and air conditioning design. Using leading-edge technologies and the wide range of computer software programs we developed in-house, we optimize the locations of fans, cooling plants, main shafts, and airways. Our software also helps us to accurately project fan, cooling, and air filtration duties as well as operating and capital costs.

Our consultants are likewise experts in the installation and calibration of ventilation monitoring equipment.

Our services:

  • Ventilation surveys for all underground facility types
  • Ventilation system modeling, design, and review at all project stages
  • Underground fire risk analysis and modeling to optimize mine design and escape planning
  • Monitoring system development
  • Operational auditing and optimization
  • Climatic studies to identify and mitigate potentially hazardous sub-surface conditions
  • Emission reduction strategies
  • Troubleshooting of problems with heat, dust, gaseous contaminants, pressure differentials, etc.
  • Capital and operation cost estimation
