Reacton Fire Suppression Install Systems At Mongolian Coal Mine

Earlier this year Reacton Fire Suppression completed a 28 day installation, battling extreme temperatures in a Southern Mongolia coal mine.

With temperatures hitting a bone chilling 20 degrees below zero, our highly dedicated team of engineers spent 28 days in a deserted part of Southern Mongolia, flying from the UK, via Russia then a 12 hour off road drive from the nearest signs of civilisation with no road signs and only a compass for navigation to complete an installation on behalf of Bayalag Energy Resource LLC.

We were tasked with supplying and fitting a range of 27KG - 108KG Dual Agent systems to twenty of the huge Hitachi and Belaz excavators and dump trucks which cost millions of dollars.


With a coal mine of this size in such a remote setting, danger to life, vehicle downtime and total loss of equipment simply wasn't an option for Bayalag Energy which is why they chose to fit the highly accredited and reliable Reacton Automatic Fire Suppression system to their fleet.

Each asset was fitted with an automatic fire suppression system which included a full kit to include fire detection tubing, in-cab monitoring, battery isolation, engine shutdown and manual actuators.

A total of 4 Reacton technicians and installers traveled to Mongolia for the installation as full training was provided on site for the ongoing maintenance of the automatic fire suppression systems.  Being such an isolated location, it was imperative that the engineer employees of Bayalag Energy Resource were comprehensively trained to maintain the systems.  A one way trip to the mine site is over 24 hours for the Reacton engineers therefore it was imperative to provide full training to ensure there would only be very minimal downtime in the event of maintenance being required.


The reliable and robust Reacton Fire Suppression system was a perfect fit for Bayalag in the extremely harsh conditions as it is accredited to -20 degrees C.

The project was a great success and as a result the mine have set up their own company to distribute Reacton Fire Suppression products across the whole of Mongolia.
