A taste of a fully electric future mine
Our experts will address the most important obstacles associated with eliminating diesel from the mining process. There are many strategies that can advance your carbon reduction goals, minimizing waste, maximizing energy efficiency and optimizing the processes. You can choose the most beneficial and cost-effective approach for your unique circumstances, but every plan requires a new mindset, new team skills and may even change your mine design.
Shall we put our mining trucks on a trolley line?
As more mining trucks with an electrical system on-board are coming into open-pit mines, haul road electrification is gaining traction.
Proven productivity improvements, increased speed on grade, CO2 reduction and energy cost savings speak in favor of eliminating diesel with the help of a trolley assist system. We will explain how to find a ramp for trolley that gives fast payback time and how ABB can support you finding the right ramp. We will present a typical setup for trolley infrastructure including overhead line and rectifier substation and discuss how we can adjust them to fit your needs.
