Deep Pits Are a Challenge for Equipment: Drainage Water Under High Pressure
The deeper the pit, the more difficult the dewatering process: When conventional pumps reach their limits, often only a multi-level solution can help. The global race to secure scarce resources is well underway. Deposits are now being mined that could not have been reached or were not economically viable a few years ago. Also, infrastructure projects are becoming increasingly ambitious, one example being the Gotthard base tunnel. This poses great challenges with respect to the dewatering processes.
