JTMEC is launching a new range of electrification products to support Epiroc Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) projects

September 1, 2023

JTMEC Powered by Epiroc, an Australian electrical contracting company which provides specialized turnkey electrical services and products to mining and tunnelling industries, is launching a new range of products. These products will help to accelerate the electrification of mines going forward.

JTMEC Dual MineStarterTM

JTMEC is proud to launch its new electrical Dual MineStarter. This product is commonly used in underground mines to start drills, fans, and pumps. It can now support two applications, together with improving efficiency of operations and reducing costs for mines. The Dual MineStarter has two outlets, a configurable design, combined with optional Wi-Fi routers and many other features that makes it unique. It is also ideal to help mines move forward in the electrification of underground infrastructure.


JTMEC MineCharger TM

The JTMEC MineCharger is a market leading new charging unit designed specifically for underground battery electric light vehicles (such as Toyota Landcruiser and Hilux). With an 80kW output and the ability to connect directly to a 1000V underground system, it is the perfect solution to the challenging conditions encountered in underground mining environments and their fleet of supporting light vehicles. The JTMEC MineCharger is underground compliant allowing Epiroc to extend electrification capabilities with customers across both underground and surface applications.


These two new products have generated customer interest not only in Australia but also in South Africa and across the APAC region; and will broaden the Epiroc portfolio of electric and BEV products, complementing our existing product offering and thereby helping to accelerate the electrification of mines.


JTMEC Managing Director Garry French states that “since Epiroc's acquisition of JTMEC last year, the JTMEC business continues to grow, especially when it comes to tunnelling, and MineCharger and MineStarter are two perfect examples of enhanced capability and support provided by being part of Epiroc. This enables us to develop market leading electrical products for our customers, whilst also helping Epiroc accelerate electrification”.


The products will be shown at the AIMEX conference in Sydney, Australia, September 5-7, 2023.
