TLT-Turbo Announces Contract with Polish Mining Group

TLT-Turbo has formalized a large contract for services, spare parts supply and a 3-year overhaul of four fans as part of a framework agreement with a Polish mining group. The contract further cements the existing agreement that has been in place with this customer since 2018.

The customer is a mining operation based in Poland and operates in the copper and silver sector with 30,000+ employees globally. The scope of work for the delivery of services includes complete overhaul of the rotors, replacement of the main bearings of the built-in motors, renewal of the sealing systems of the built-in motors, maintenance of the main weather ventilation shutter, and maintenance of the regulation and control unit. These services will be jointly supplied with TLT-Turbo’s Polish service provider, HeymVent.

At their Poland-based copper mine, the customer is operating four GAF 38/25-1 type fans with adjustable blades for reverse operation and built-in motors. These fans are used for ventilation of the mine system and are essential for the survival of miners working there. TLT-Turbo will be completing the overhaul by November 2022.

This agreement is advantageous for the customer as the fans are designed for further operation and regular maintenance which ensures optimum availability of the ventilation system. This makes a major contribution to occupational safety for the miners.

It is worth noting that this is the first time that TLT-Turbo agreed to hydraulic revisions at a fixed price. This means that there will be no additional unplanned costs for this customer in future. Another benefit for the customer is that the turnaround times for hydraulic overhauls will be significantly reduced. The overhauled hydraulics will therefore be available earlier for reassembly.

TLT-Turbo consolidates its position as an MVR expert in serving the pharmaceutical industry

In October 2021, after TLT-Turbo received a huge new order for 20 MVR fans, another additional order for 4 larger MVR fans was put in by the same customer. This order precedes the delivery of 32 machines to the customer which shows its satisfaction in our products and continued trust in TLT-Turbo.

Within four years we have strived to make considerable ground in the market by supplying numerous high-quality MVR fans of various sizes”, says Mario Schmidt, Head of Business Segment Vapor Fans.

After intensive and positive discussions and a huge effort by our TLT-Turbo team in Beijing, we successfully wrapped up two orders in a row from our main client in the pharmaceutical industry.

He further added that, “given the higher efficiency of TLT-Turbo manufactured MVR fans, it makes us more competitive in the small to medium mass flows market where there are many potential clients in different industries such as dairy, food and beverage and pharmaceutical production.

TLT-Turbo Secures Ventilation Works for Swiss Baregg Tunnel Project

TLT-Turbo (GmbH), a leading supplier of ventilation equipment and systems has received a contract to provide longitudinal ventilation and escape route ventilation for the Baregg Tunnel project through a call for tender by the Swiss Federal Roads Office, ASTRA, based in Zofingen, Switzerland.

The scope of TLT-Turbo’s delivery on the project includes 16 stainless steel, dual-speed jet fans. The jet fans will meet the project’s temperature requirement of 250 °C/2 h. The contract also includes the supply of an extensive array of services including project management, documentation of performance and technical specifications, inspections, QA, testing, training of operating personnel and future maintenance. The order is currently being processed with completion of the installation expected by January 2024.

The Baregg tunnel and the Neuenhof covering are part of Switzerland’s N01 route, located between the exits and entrances of Baden-West and Wettingen. This section is known as one of the busiest sections of the Swiss national road network.

TLT-Turbo Head of Tunnel and Metro division, Jürgen Steltmann, said: “We scoped out this project by starting with a dimensional survey and inspection of the existing tunnel structure. This will be followed by planning, fabrication, factory tests and finally delivery and installation. We are confident that our approach will result in a ventilation solution that meets the requirements of the Baregg Tunnel project and ensures and safe environment for commuters.”

TLT-Turbo has over 100 years of experience in ventilation technology and has been developing, manufacturing, and constructing fans and ventilation systems for more than 40 years. This extensive experience has been consistently incorporated into the development of their tunnel ventilation systems.

According to Steltmann, to ensure a safe environment inside tunnels, TLT-Turbo’s foremost consideration is smoke. “In an emergency, smoke is one of the major hazards for people in an underground tunnel. Our ventilation systems provide clear visibility for escape routes. In case of fire, our Metro and Tunnel fans provide smoke free emergency exit routes.”

“Our other key considerations are quality, noise abatement and energy efficiency. Our fans are tested according to EN 12101-3 give tunnel operators peace of mind that they are receiving ventilation equipment that meets their specifications and is of the highest quality. From there, TLT-Turbo combines specially selected materials, highly heat-resistant motors and design precision to blend quality assurance with the highest economic efficiency,” Steltmann explains.

The aerodynamic features of TLT-Turbo’s Jet Fan range guarantee low power consumption and installation costs. They also help to keep the acoustic noise low. These fans may be used in tunnel sections as jet fans with free inlet and outlet and as axial fans in ducted installations. The success story of these fans started in the early 1970’s in the Alps and several important Alptransit-routes have been equipped with TLT-Turbo tunnel fans since then – including ventilation for the longest railway tunnel worldwide in the Gotthard Base Tunnel.

“Our track record combined with the fact we have well-trained, experienced staff who collaborate with leading international consultants to ensure that we meet expected international standards are what have made TLT-Turbo not just a supplier, but a preferred tunnel and metro ventilation partner renowned for redefining ventilation quality and performance,” Steltmann concludes.

“This newly secured contract adds to the growing list of projects that TLT-Turbo has been a part of in China recently – each of which reflects our excellent teamwork and long-term success,” says Ma Le, TLT-Turbo Sales Representative based in the region.

Ma Le adds that this is the fourth contract that TLT-Turbo has won since establishing a working relationship with Baosteel in 2013. Since 2013, TLT-Turbo has delivered a total of eight sinter fans to Baosteel – one of which is the largest operational sinter fan in the world.

However, we strongly believe that through the combined efforts of the regional TLT-Turbo teams across the world, we will be able to endure through this crisis and for long after it has passed. We are sincerely thankful to every member of the TLT-Turbo global team for the part they have played in our continued success and resilience. We have all risen to the challenge of temporarily changing how we do things – but this is just another example of Ventilation Redefined.”
