ABB is proud to be a Gold Sponsor at 2019s IMARC conference. Come and find ABB at stand L19 during the conference to talk digitalisation, automation and electrification. ABB is a market leader in mine digitalisation, automation and electrification. We start with the best people, engineering expertise and over a century of knowledge of electrification and process control in mines. Our team provides integrated products, services and solutions supported by its common ABB Ability digital platform to help mining and mineral processing customers optimise their power and productivity, resulting in increased availability and lower lifetime investment costs. Together, we are building the future of mining, transforming the way mines operate, creating a digitally enabled environment that is safe, clean and sustainable, with a workforce carrying out exciting, stimulating tasks. Digitalisation In the digital mine every operational detail is connected, improving safety, productivity and efficiency. To achieve ultimate mining performance total visibility and optimisation across operations is essential. Seamlessly connected digital systems are required to ensure that data from across the entire fleet is available at all times, in forms that are tailored to specific roles. ABB's Digital Mine is providing data-driven solutions, continually expanding the opportunities at every operational stage. Assessing, automating, optimising and collaborating are only a few of the values digitally connected products and services can create for the mining industry. ABB unifies and simplifies access to all its digital solutions for mining and mineral processing under the single portfolio - ABB Ability MineOptimize. Automation ABB has been at the forefront of automating mining technologies - such as ultra-long-distance conveying and super-sized processing plant technologies - necessary to drive major physical infrastructure improvements. ABB has pioneered some of the worlds most exciting technological advances in mining control systems and is a leader in the design and development of remote operations centres for some of the worlds largest mining companies. Going forward ABBs holistic approach to the entire mining operation ABB Ability MineOptimize will feature smart devices and equipment - enabled for autonomous configuration, efficient operation and self-diagnostics as well as software that delivers total, real-time transparency for operators. This will provide visibility of resources across the mine, intelligent production based on near real-time demand, market conditions and available ore types and an optimal response to critical asset conditions. Electrification Mine operators need to be looking at ways to become more energy efficient, be less diesel dependent, and further their social licence to operate while ensuring operations are safer and more productive. Electricity transformation is happening at all levels, including fully-electric or hybrid electric heavy vehicles and battery energy storage. However, these technologies present many new challenges for mine operators concerning the infrastructure, maintenance and operating constraints. The selection of the right electrical product or solution and its implementation takes experience and technical know-how to ensure your vision and objectives will be met. Technology partners like ABB can support your transition towards electrifying your mine. We are looking forward to speaking with you at IMARC 2019 - Visit ABB at L19 at IMARC.
