Eland Cables is a leading supplier of heavy-duty power, control and instrumentation cables to mine operators and their contractors worldwide. Our comprehensive range of mining cables cover both static and dynamic equipment applications, and low and medium voltage infrastructure installations, manufactured in accordance with relevant international standards including BS EN/IEC 60332, BS EN/IEC 60811, BS EN/IEC 60754, IEC 60754-2 and VDE 0295. We can provide cables specifically designed for both opencast mining environments and sub-surface operations.

Our mining, drilling and tunnelling cable products are designed to operate in some of the harshest environments on earth. Equipment failure and the consequent downtime can be especially costly in an industry that relies on heavy-duty machinery to complete this labour-intensive work, and so can, in the worst-case scenario, be a risk to operational safety. In an industry pushing to become increasingly automated, it demands cables that can be relied upon to deliver consistent high performance. Our cables are designed to withstand mechanical stress, oils, greases, water, even submersion. We supply mining cables capable of safely working in enclosed spaces, providing protection to people and the high-value equipment in the event of fire by emitting reduced smoke and fumes.
