130 years ago, our first electrical motor for a mine hoist was commissioned in Sweden.
The world's first gearless mill drive, which we delivered over 50 years ago, is still grinding ore.
Just recently we commissioned the world's most powerful gearless conveyor drive, improving performance significantly and reducing CO2 emissions enormously.
Because we do not compromise on the health and safety of people working in mines, we have developed another market leading technology: ABB Ability™ Safety Plus, the first fully SIL 3 certified hoist solutions, ensuring the highest level of safety for people and materials.
Many years as pioneers in the integration of electrification, automation and digitalization
We have developed ABB Ability™ MineOptimize, a platform to connect these innovations and facilitate the transition to the digital mine of the future. This approach offers mine operators a suite of digitally connected solutions, products and services that ensure the right people have the right information at the right time .
Committed to working with the mining industry towards a CO2-free, energy-efficient mine, we design all-electric mines where electrification and digital are fully integrated, from mine to port. Enabled by our digital and automation systems, we deliver smart power to optimize operations and energy usage.
We are transforming the way mines operate, creating a digitally enabled environment that is safe, with a workforce carrying out exciting tasks.
Driven by our 130 years of experience, we are building the road to sustainable progress for mines of the future.
