TRADING as Bass Electrical Engineering, ARA Electrical designs and constructs mobile switch rooms and switchboards for the Australian
mining and resources sector.
With more than 34 years of experience in creating turnkey electrical engineering and communications solutions, Bass has a reputation for manufacturing innovative, quality products built to Australian and international standards.
Bass’s custom-built products offer a cost-effective means of controlling power on remote sites.
Bass mobile switch rooms comprise main and auxiliary switchboard power distribution, motor control centres and a separate dedicated automation room.
Off-site manufacturing enables comprehensive factory testing prior to delivery, with minimal on-site commissioning time.
The design and layout of Bass’s switch rooms is such that they can be split lengthwise, enabling uncomplicated transportation by road or rail. Switch rooms are built to each customer’s individual specifications; for example, a recent switch room built for a coal mine was installed onto an elevated 20m platform. Bass employs specialist teams trained and certified in hazardous area design, installation and inspection.
Engineering and automation services are delivered by a large engineering team that specialises in power and control system design, programmable logic control and supervisory control and data acquisition programming and commissioning services.
Past projects include material handling and plant control systems, stacking/reclaiming and crushing applications, main ventilation fans, pumping stations, and washer and processing plants.
