Power generation expertise and solutions to the Mining Industry

Mining expertise

People in mining know that if they don't haul the goods, they don't stay in business. But the trucks that they rely on operate in some of the most punishing conditions, conditions where there is substantial shock and vibration as well as a dusty, gritty atmosphere.

That is why KATO™ traction alternators are the premiere choice for mine-haul trucks. These traction alternators provide high-voltage rectified dc power to run traction motors, which turn the vehicle's wheels.

Built smaller and lighter, KATO™ traction alternators help reduce vehicle payload. But rugged construction and superior insulation ensure they can handle bumpy, grimy conditions as well as the thermal cycling caused by the constant acceleration and deceleration mine haul trucks must endure.

Regulatory requirements and technical specifications

Kato Engineering designs power generation systems that can comply with numerous international standards (ISO, IEEE, MIL-STD, NEMA …) and meet/exceed industry standards for performance, reliability, maintainability and compactness. With each proposal, we quote specific requirements for your application needs.
