With digitalisation at its heart, ABB AbilityTM MineOptimize connects all electrification, automation and digital offerings to optimise all stages in the lifecycle of any open pit, underground mine or minerals processing plant.
ABB AbilityTM MineOptimize is a portfolio of optimized electrification, drives and automation solutions, optimised engineering, digital applications and collaborative services.
It comprises a suite of digitally connected products, services and solutions, which include digital technologies for remote services, predictive maintenance tools as well as solutions for upgrades and retrofits. Advanced application libraries, software solutions and digital platforms reduce process complexity, promote safe and secure production and lower lifetime operating costs.
“Optimisation of mining and mineral processing operations in order to improve productivity, reduce downtime and protect workforce and the environment is essential and an important factor in being competitive in the market,” said Martin Knabenhans, head of product management for ABB’s Process Industries business unit.
ABB will roll out new electrification solutions, digital applications and collaborative services in the ABB AbilityTM MineOptimize portfolio throughout the year to:
- Enable sustainable mining by powering the all-electric mine
- Re-invent mining automation with the next generation of ABB AbilityTM System 800xA for Process and Power Control
- Improve availability through enhanced collaborative services with new predictive cloud based analytics for grinding, hoists and conveyors
The new ABB AbilityTM MineOptimize digital applications complement electrification and automation solutions and dedicated mining systems for hoists, gearless or ring geared mill drives and material handling which can be applied in the building or revamping of a mine. They will also sit alongside collaborative remote assistance, availability, performance and quality services.
