Autonomous solutions specialist RCT has completed a project for Russian Cat® dealer Vostochnaya Technica (VT) on a fixed position rockbreaker in Siberia.
The pilot project involved commissioning ControlMaster® Teleremote on a fixed position BTI rockbreaker for a large Russian mining company at one of its operations in Siberia.
RCT also provided a Digital Vision Kit consisting of two fixed cameras and audio capability and a Fibre Optic Control Station (FOCS) located in site offices on the mine’s surface.
The company’s Moscow-based CIS Business Development Manager Stephen Macarow said the rockbreaker was the latest RCT project to be completed at mines in the region.
As well as installing its Teleremote technology onto the rockbreaker RCT’s bespoke solutions division Custom tailored the Teleremote package to the mining company’s specific requirement.
“RCT developed a unique auto-stow function at the request of VT and the mining company,” Macarow said.
The auto-stow function means operators can simply push a button and retract the rockbreaker arm from the grizzly or steel grate over the ore pass and bring the machine to a parked position.
