    The Buckskin Mine produces more than 27 million tons of high-quality, low-sulfur coal per year. Harvesting these large quantities of coal requires a large fleet of heavy-duty trucks and digging equipment, which need to be well maintained and operate around the clock. To accommodate accelerated operations, a new 30,000 SF service shop addition − comprised of a wash building, maintenance building, and offices − was designed and built. The RMH Group was responsible for designing robust, but efficient, mechanical and electrical systems for this high-use, industrial facility. The vehicle wash system located in the wash building consists of six handwheel-controlled monitor nozzles, three on each side of the vehicle being cleaned, located on a steel catwalk. A water reclamation system was designed to conserve water in an geographic region with limited water resources. The maintenance building is heated with an energy-efficient, low-temperature hydronic radiant floor, which is supplemented with overhead infrared heaters. RMH designed a number of special systems for the maintenance facility including sand/oil separators, lubricant storage and dispensing, waste oil collection, welding gas distribution, and compressed air distribution.
