These fans are capable of delivering well over ten times more air into the workings than the old fans (up to 120 cubic metres of fresh air every second).

The new fans, in conjunction with the opening of the link mine, is expected to significantly reduce the amount of radon and diesel emissions within the workings to the benefit of everyone working underground.
