Utilising a combination of ERICO’s System3000 Dynaspheres, aluminium lightning protection air terminals and catenary wires,  WAPP is proud to be a part of the successful delivery of this project.

“The Lightning Protection System (LPS) is an innovative, unique and long-term solution to a frequent hazard in the mining industry.

The LPS benefits people by allowing them to safely move around facilities during lightning red alerts, by capturing lightning strikes at preferred points then redirecting the energy to a grounding system.”
