The unit was fittingly named Remote Operating Control Room or ROC Room. Situated underground in the “green zone” safe area, the room will be used as a collaborative environment to manage and monitor daily operations, equipment, and production activities.
The ROC Room offers sites a platform for end to end integration of operations processes and management. By acting as a data collection hub to sustain operations and help staff make the right critical operational decisions.
Designing an Underground Control Room
Despite not being a safe refuge chamber, the ROC Room was manufactured to MineARC’s high-quality standards.
Made from 5mm steel, ROC Room was fortified with 50mm insulation and cooled positive pressure ventilation, including fixed and adjustable ventilation ports. The unit’s rear houses a ventilated electrical cabinet and compressed air source to filter the incoming air from contaminants.
