MacLean Engineering's Unique Approach to Mining Utility Vehicles

Welcome to "Mining Now" with your host Jerrod Downey. In this episode, we have the privilege of hosting Jari Tuorila, the Vice President of Australasia for MacLean Engineering. MacLean Engineering is a renowned name in the field of underground mobile equipment solutions. With nearly five decades of experience in hard rock mining, they offer a wide array of products, including platform and utility bolters, shotcrete sprayers, and transmixers for ground support, remote operated blockholer drills, mobile rock breakers, and water cannons for ore flow and secondary reduction, as well as Mine-MateTM scissor lifts, boom lifts, and an extensive range of utility vehicles and attachments. Their commitment to safety, productivity, and innovation is evident, and they have recently introduced full-fleet electrification for diesel-free operations underground.

MacLean Engineering's products, such as the OptiLifter Work Platform (EWP), OptiGrader GR5 BEV, OptiCharger MC5 BEV, OptiBatch BP3 D, and OptSpayer SS5 BEV, demonstrate their dedication to cutting-edge technology. They focus on keeping operators safe by providing in-cab solutions, enhancing health and safety for workers and attracting skilled personnel. Their ChemSafe system reduces costs by using fewer shotcrete chemicals while ensuring they stay on the wall. Their Quick Scan technology revolutionizes the spraying process, providing rapid results in seconds, leading to increased efficiency, a key factor in the mining industry.

MacLean Engineering is strategically positioned in Australia, with two shops in Perth and Orange, close to major mining companies. They are actively addressing the industry's challenges, such as a shortage of skilled workers, expanding in the Australian market, and exploring new avenues in metals and mining. Their focus on attracting talent for electric vehicles and ensuring safety and efficiency sets the tone for a promising future in the Australian mining landscape. Stay tuned to learn more about their growth, partnerships, and case studies, as well as their vision for the next 3-5 years in Australia.
