Data-driven decision-making leads to smarter mine operations that maximize resource efficiency, and can be seen in action at the world’s most advanced and integrated mine at Garpenberg
in Sweden. ABB’s System 800xA control solution is the ‘brain’ behind the automated mine, collecting data from Garpenberg’s 400-plus electric motors, 280 variable speed drives and two massive hoists.
Its operators and engineers, stationed at 33 different workplaces, are linked to tablet-equipped workers via a wired and wireless communication network installed in the mill and part of the mine.
Early engagement between the mining company and technology provider will continue to be key.ABB’s Enterprise Digital Transformation approach
for the mining industry helps customers clarify their digital strategy, achieve strategic targets faster, and focus on the right projects with the best return on investment.
