RME provides the mining industry with underground mine ventilation and refrigeration consultancy. New mines are designed including changes and optimisation of current mines in relation to ventilation and refrigeration requirements. Mine ventilation and cooling systems are simulated, planned and designed using state of the art technology and appropriate technical capabilities.


Mines such as Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Copper, Nickel, Potash, Zink, Chrome, Coal, and others have been designed and planned with special reference to Ventilation, Refrigeration, and Occupational Hygiene Engineering. The use of Electrical, Diesel and more conventional equipment utilised in underground operations are but one of the many factors considered when mine design/s and review/audits are done.


In-mine heat load reduction opportunities are evaluated as possible sources which could include chilled water (or service water), ice reticulation systems, backfill applications and transport thereof and energy recovery / exchange systems.
