Specific conditions

Exploitation conditions2

Exploitation conditions

The owner has to appoint some one (responsible leader) to exercise supervision on the exploitation of the underground facilities (art. 18 - R.D. 1965/04/12).

Access regulations

Working instructions

Safety instructions for underground activities

Special instructions for activities by a third party

Instructions for the use of radioactive elements

Emergency plan

Inspection procedures

Exploitation conditions3

Exploitation conditions

For the dayly operation of the facilities, the responsible leader can delegate a part of the responsability to other people.

(These peoples are called green helmets)

Operation of the hoisting gear

Operation of the cage (elevator)

Responsible for a working team in the underground


Operational stand by costs

Operational Stand By costs

Rent of the hoisting gear and the headframe of the first shaft.

Manpower to keep the installation operational

Legal inspections by AIB-Vinçotte and AVN

Legal inspections by own people

Maintenance of equipment

Power consumption


Operational stand by cost

Operational Stand By cost

Level 1 : 991,57 €/day

Underground visits

Covers the winding installation and the operator

Level 2 : 1.760,04 €/day

Field activities without the use of the DAC system

Covers level 1, utilities, legal deputy for underground activities

Level 3 : 1.859,20 €/day

Field activities with the use of the DAC system

Covers level 2, the DAC system

Operational stand by cost1

Operational Stand By cost

Use of the drilling equipment : 1.748,29 €/day

In this cost the working team (1 A2 and 2 A3) and supervision is included

Charges for employees

A0 = 109,17 €/hour

A1 = 75,26 €/hour

A2 = 57,73 €/hour

A3 = 41,67 €/hour

Operational stand by cost2

Operational Stand By cost

Every user pays 1 OSB a month, unesteemed the use of the installations.

This cost must be seen as fixed participation in the operational cost.

Beside this it is foreseen to charge users for their active use of the installations.

Days of active use of the installations multiply by the OSB.

Use of the drilling equipment.

Use of other employees.
