Thriveni Earthmovers Private Limited, through its joint venture TSMPL operates India's largest energy conglomerate NTPC’s Pakri Barwadih coal mining project (PBCMP) in Jharkhand, India. Thriveni has awarded Zyfra the contract to implement its Intelligent Mine solution at PBCMP.
“Today we see a request from the market to improve the entire production chain efficiency, not its separate elements. We are ready to offer to our customer's single digital platform by the principle “Mine to Mill”, which will allow integrating different data into one digital layer and result into the optimisation of the processes with the help of Artificial Intelligence,” said Pavel Rastopshin, Managing Director of Zyfra.
Zyfra’s Intelligent Mine solution includes ZM Karier: Mine Fleet Management System with automatic dispatch system of haul trucks, ZM Drill: Automated Drilling and Blasting Control System and ZM Scarex: Machine Guidance Digging Systems, integrated with Payload and Fuel Level Monitoring System, Tyre Management System, Equipment Diagnostic Systems and other resource planning and application software for data import and export related to planning, production, equipment performance, manpower attendance, real-time analytics. The customer has remote access from anywhere to the existing network, which will available in English, Hindi and other vernacular languages as required.
The company will supply, install, configure, integrate a complete package of equipment, and then operate, maintain the system and impart training for a period of 1 year.
Automatic dispatching and optimisation software allocates mining equipment, creates a schedule and assign routes to mobile equipment according to the production objectives in real-time. The payload and fuel level monitoring system allows optimising the average payload of haul trucks and eliminating underloading and overloading.
“With every passing year, mining operations are carried out in progressively more complex and dangerous geological and climatic conditions. In order to increase production efficiency in accordance with industrial safety standards, there is a need to develop innovative solutions for the mining industry, including dispatching and diagnostic systems, autonomous or unmanned control systems for dump trucks and drilling rigs and predictive maintenance, and analytics for solving mining process optimisation problems. Unmanned vehicles are the key to innovation in the mining industry,” said Liana Meliksetyan, Chief Operating Officer of Zyfra.
