ELECTRIC MINE OPERATIONAL KNOWLEDGE SHARING PLATFORM
ABOUT THE PROJECT
As the testing and deployment of electric equipment is increasing, GMG members identified the need for a greater shared understanding around its use.
The project aims to create a neutral platform to share operational data electric mining equipment. The industry can use this information to accelerate innovation and adoption.
The first step is to develop agreement and alignment within the industry on what valuable information on operational performance and handling requirements relating to electric equipment for surface and underground production should be widely accessible. This information will then be stored in a neutral database that all mining stakeholders can access.
A series of KPIs were developed in 2020, and these are currently being worked into a separate guideline that will support this project. Learn moreabout the KPIs project.
The more companies willing to share their data and experiences, the greater the knowledge base for other companies to use when determining how electric equipment could best be integrated into their operations.
Implementing electric equipment will bring down carbon tax costs and can help companies to their goal of net zero emissions.
Data collection on electric equipment use can be used to accelerate development
Sharing data can help more mining companies invest in electric equipment, which can bring down costs.
Summary of Survey Results and Workshop Outcomes:
Currently there is work being done to determine what platform could be used to host the data as well as outreach to determine what data companies would be comfortable sharing.
