PRS Relay Bars

If you want quality replacement components for your roof supports then one of the worlds leading manufacturers is a good place to start! NEPEAN Longwall first supplied a longwall face of replacement relay bars back in 2005. Since then, we have been involved in many other roof support component change-out programs. Our partner BMJ works with us to design, prototype, test and manufacture these components using their deep and impressive experience of roof support design principles. The result is a fully engineered solution that is compatible with your longwall face.

BMJ is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of Powered Roof Supports and the company delivers the incredible volume of approximately one complete longwall face per week. NEPEAN Longwall offers structures and hydraulic cylinders manufactured by BMJ of China, a manufacturer with an outstanding track record of design competence and manufacturing quality.

NEPEAN Longwall and BMJ have supplied fully tested roof supports to Cook Colliery, Appin West Mine and Oaky North Mine over the past few years and NEPEAN is currently in the process of completing a roof support test program for Anglo Americans – Moranbah North’s mine in Queensland. This test program is the most extensive that has ever been undertaken for a mine in Australia.

NEPEAN’s sound and proven project management experience are applied to all projects undertaken with BMJ. Core engineering analysis functions like the design review process are conducted locally in Australia. This process has proven successful on a number of projects delivered to Australia over the past five years and ensure that all project management, engineering, fabrication and testing functions conform to relevant Australian standards or customer specifications.
