The benefits are many…increased health & safety, enormous energy savings, and production gains just to name a few. Phase 1 of implementing a VentSim CONNECT or CONTROL system is an assessment of your current system and mine details. From there, our engineers provide an extensive report outlining what is required, what it will cost, what you will save and how long it will take to return on your investment.

To help you get the system in place, we offer a number of flexible Ventilation as a Service (VaaS) payment plans to suit your mine's requirements and budget. These payment plans have the ability to eliminate the need for a CAPEX.
