The efficiency of mining operations is influenced by its major mechanical and electrical installations, appropriate planning and engineering. Viewed as an integrated entity, the plant’s infrastructure includes items like optimized substation and electrical room layouts, cable engineering, grounding systems, fire detection and protection, air-conditioning and ventilation systems, communication systems and much more. ABB ensures the selection of the right electrical technologies and products, their correct dimensioning, compliance with environmental conditions - leading to substantial savings in investment and energy consumption. We are also collaborating with the industry to find new ways to transition from diesel to electricity.
