The Digitalization Challenge
Mines are challenging environments. The mining business is based on ability to identify ore and extract it efficiently according to plan. Consistent mill feed is vital part of mine output. To make this happen, management of several processes are needed for transferring ore.
Mine infrastructure typically consists of power grids, data networks, water infra, ventilation systems and the tunnel network itself. People, mining equipment and extracted rock material are the moving elements in mine.
Due to fast industrial digitalization, data controlled mining processes are increasing. Manual work stages gets partly or entirely automated. We are interested in hearing about solutions, which enable data based mining control, tracking different elements and monitoring surroundings.
We are looking for solutions to identify new digital capabilities and ways to utilize them as part of our business. You can demonstrate your solution in our test mine. The allocated time for demo is one hour. We are open for further discussions and possible co-operation with the best solution providers.
