Mechanical - Fixed Plant Maintenance

Kangaroo Resources provides all the necessary support to ensure equipment availability through best practice maintenance. We have extensive experience within all aspects of fixed plant maintenance, and understand the vital importance of daily preventative maintenance schedules and statutory compliance as per mining regulations. We are therefore able to provide maintenance departments with expert recommendations as to essential requirements – either minimum or optimum recommendations – to reduce breakdowns and unexpected costly plant down time.

Our other services include:


Shutdown Supervision

Independently supervise mill, feeder and crusher shutdowns ensuring work is completed on time and at cost and rectifying any problems that arise during the outage. Shutdown Planning – In conjunction with the Shutdown Supervision, Kangaroo Resources can plan small to large shutdowns dealing with specialised areas. This in turn reduces the workload on site supervisors or planners.

Shutdown Manning

Our experienced tradesmen can carry out all aspects of shutdown maintenance. Trades available include Mechanical Supervisors, Mechanical Fitters, Boilermakers, Machinists, Scaffolders, Riggers, and Trade Assisitants as well as High Voltage Electricians and Instrument Technicians for disconnects, reconnects, testing and commissioning.

Preventative Maintenance

Breakdown prevention is fundamental in reducing lost time. The critical areas that fall within preventative maintenance are pinion and girth gear inspections, bearing and conveyor inspections and include drive trains. RR can visit your site to carry out an inspection, reporting on the condition of your equipment whilst building essential preventative maintenance strategies. Upon completion of the inspection and compilation of the report, Kangaroo Resources can provide you with further recommendations such as repair, replacement or continued inspections to increase equipment availability.

Project Management

Kangaroo Resources can project manage breakdowns, repairs and installations to ensure that all parties involved within the shutdown are functioning efficiently. This ensures the job is completed in the shortest timeframe whilst still maintaining a high level of safety.
