Australia is one of the biggest mining operators in the world and has work sites here and around in the world. This means mining projects can be complicated to complete, especially if we’re talking about big-ticket projects. Large projects such as these need many skilled technicians working together to complete the needs of the project, and one such skill is that of electrical contractors.
Even the mining industry needs electrical contracting. As a licensed mechanical and electrical contractor, James Technologies specialises in supplying project services and skilled labour for not only the mining industry, but also refining, construction, and oil and gas industries. We understand how important it is to find reliable electrical contractors for projects and make it our goal to offer just that.
In this article, we’ll look at electrical contracting services for large-scale projects in Australian and overseas mining projects and how James Technologies’s electrical contractors can help you achieve your goals and run a complex project with finesse and high degree of confidence.
What Is Electrical Contracting?
First, let’s define electrical contracting and what it is we do. An electrical contractor is a person or a business entity that handles all jobs related to electrical systems. These include installation, modification, maintenance, design and planning.
- Work closely with other contractors and professionals such as architects and interior designers to make sure that our work is compatible and within the standards required by the client
- Provide sound and expert advice to our clients to anything related to construction work and maintenance. For instance, we can offer ways on how make energy systems such as electricity be more efficient and sustainable, which will then generate better returns for the business and allow them to enjoy better cost savings
- Manage projects, both big and small, for businesses
- Provide labour, transport and supply
- Make sure that we complete projects according to the standards, rules and regulations set by the government and industry organisations
Our electrical contracting for the mining industry includes a wide range of services and technicians including:
- Testing and commissioning services
- Mechanics and administrative staff
- Cable repair services
- Engineering services
- High-voltage distribution
- Workshop services
- Onsite support services
- Outdoor HV switchgear
To top it off, we are licensed electrical contractors. This is very important information because we’ve already come across people and companies who settle for “freelancers” or fly-by-night contractors simply because they are considerably cheaper.
Electrical contracting is a much specialised field for the simple reason that it’s a very risky job. It cannot—and should not—be handled by just about anyone. In turn, any business entity or person that wants to engage in this business should have a licence provided by Electrical Licensing Board.
One of the requirements is to pass more than 60 competencies that help the licensing board gage our knowledge, expertise and experience in the field, including in mining, oil, gas and refining industry.
