A big mine with big vision for control and usability
Boliden is a European metal company that conducts operations in the business areas Mines and Smelters. The main metals are zinc and copper; other important metals produced are lead, gold and silver. The recycling of metals is a different, growing part of operations.
In the Aitik36 project, Boliden has created a modern and efficient process control environment. To achieve their vision regarding control and usability Boliden chose system 800xA including its standard functionality, system extensions and integration possibilities.
One of the used system extensions is Snapshot Reports for 800xA. During future 800xA system upgrades or maintenance stops in other mines, the installation of Snapshot Reports for 800xA will be a recommendation from the Boliden Process IT Technical Department.
