40” Electrical Substation, Cannington Mine, McKinlay QLD
Custom FM 114×2600
Ground Screws Australia
This 32 tonne electrical substation at the South32 Cannington Mine is mounted on 10 of our FM 114×2600 ground screws installed approximately 700mm proud. The substation services the 3MW Cannington Solar Farm, which is also mounted on the same custom designed ground screws for the project.
The soil conditions on site were extremely hard and pre-drilling via our DTH hammer drilling equipment was required. The 40” container was fixed to our ground screws via bolt on container twist locks. In addition to fixing bolts, F9 Lindapter clamps were used to secure the twist locks.
