As part of the development of its mining processes, the largest goldmine in Europe — located in Kittilä, the far north of Finland — has invested in ABB’s production and personnel hoists. This investment will contribute to increasing the capacity of the mine and reducing the use of fossil fuels.
ABB AbilityTM Performance Optimization for hoists is incorporated into the new ABB AbilityTM Collaborative Operations Center in Västerås, Sweden; it provides optimization and technical support for customers’ hoist systems to reduce unplanned stoppages and increase system safety and reliability
New Collaborative Operations Center in Västerås, Sweden delivers the true benefits of today’s digital technologies by providing predictive analytics and Key Performance Indicators to improve customer processes, efficiency, safety and profitability.
Already proven on larger motors, the newest drive is designed for medium power range motors (1 to 3 MW per motor) to make this technology economically feasible for a broader range of conveyor systems, including the use on mobile equipment in mining operations.
