Mine Site Technologies has supplied two VDV Leaky Feeder Radio systems to two mines from Volcan.
Mine Site Technologies have supplied VDV equipment into other Peruvian mines in the past, but these two installations represent our first complete system orders into Peru.
Despite competition from other leaky feeder suppliers, VDV was chosen as it offered superior performance and more importantly due to intense physical conditions in the Peruvian mines, the highly ruggedised and sealed Infinity series line amplifiers have a record for long term reliability.
The first mine is Yauli - Andayhagua Mine with the first stage of the installation consisting of a 2 Channel Headend powering 44 Infinity series line amplifiers in 14.6 km of leaky coax antenna.
The second mine is Yauli - San Cristóbal and Carahuacra Mine. This is used to establish radio communications into a complete new area of the mine and consists of 36 Infinity Series Line Amplifiers and 10.8 km of coax antenna.
