The project will create a neutral platform to share operational data for electric surface and underground equipment. The industry can use this information to accelerate innovation and adoption.
As mining companies and OEMs test and deploy their electric equipment vehicles, information is not being widely shared nor kept centralized in one single platform.
With this project, GMG aims to align the industry on operational performance and handling requirements related to electric equipment for surface and underground.

2020 May | Project launch
Participants were gathered to brainstorm the KPIs that would be included in the platform. Some considerations are around information about the daily cycle and time usage in comparison to diesel, identifying what information should available in real time, information or metrics for comparing charging strategies, information for assessing and updating charging infrastructure, information on heat generation, and training information for operators, safety personnel and maintenance technicians.
