Sweden set for electrification talks!

Mine electrification to be discussed at GMG Luleå Forum and The Electric Mine 2020

As GMG’s The Electric Mine Working Group starts to shape its strategy, many of its members will be taking part in two major events in Sweden next month.

The Electric Mine 2020

First up on the agenda is The Electric Mine 2020, the world’s only global event to focus solely on the theme of mine electrification. Taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, on March 19-20, the conference has a fantastic lineup of speakers, including GMG Managing Director, Heather Ednie, who will speak about collaboration on the electric mine of the future on day one.

Other GMG members due to take to the conference stage include Caterpillar, Epiroc, Vale, Boliden, GE Transportation, a Wabtec Company, ABB, Miller Technology, Sandvik, Siemens and SRK Consulting. GMG will also have an exhibition stand at the event for anyone that wants to find out more about how the latest The Electric Mine WG virtual meeting went (more news on that soon!).
