Mine rescue, sometimes known as mines rescue, is a specialised profession that involves rescuing miners and other people who have become trapped or hurt in underground mines as a result of mining accidents, roof falls or floods, or natural calamities like explosions.
A customised vehicle called a “rescue vehicle” is made to carry and supply the tools needed for technical rescue.Following the declaration of an emergency, mine rescue teams respond immediately to identify, rescue, and recover miners who are unable to return to the surface, as well as to put out fires, fix and build ventilation circuits, and do other necessary tasks.
The Global Mine Rescue Vehicles Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Rescue techniques could change thanks to a new minesweeper. The way teams approach a rescue could be revolutionised by a new mines rescue vehicle that has been created expressly for use in Canadian mines.
The latest in mine rescue vehicles are now available thanks to a collaboration between Dräger and mining vehicle manufacturer Paus.The Dräger MRV9000 was initially introduced at MinExpo, and a specially designed model has been produced in Canada for Goldcorp’s operations.
The brand-new self-contained mine rescue vehicle enables rescuers to reach other mining locations or drifts swiftly without exposing employees to dangerous environments. By providing safe transportation closer to the event scene, it allows mines rescue teams to extend their mission time.
The new Dräger vehicle is airtight, sealed, and self-contained. The design of the vehicle ultimately prevents the mine rescuers from using their personal oxygen supply while travelling to an accident site. This is particularly crucial whether passing through any mining gas, smoke, or carbon monoxide from a fire area.
The new vehicle is a four-wheel drive truck made by the German company Paus, which also produces flameproof versions of mining trucks for use in underground coal.
The vehicle cab includes space for two persons and a separate source of positive air pressure. Seven mine rescuer seats, together with space for a stretcher and a patient, are located in the cargo area in the back of the vehicle.
