Digitizing mining operations to increase operational performance
In addition, they recognized that digital twins, which enable monitoring and performance management, would help improve safety and productivity on their sites.
But the first step towards creating digital twins is creating and maintaining digital records of the sites, leveraging different types of data sources - this can be a challenge.
Utilizing Alteia's platform, Eramet has placed visual intelligence at the core of its growth, operational performance, and competitive edge. And central to their goal, they can now access digital twins of all field sites in just one click.
Chief Data & Analytics Officer
A combination of visual and machine data for operational efficiency and safety
Quantify site differences month-on-month, assess deviations from pit design, measure volume remaining to final pit limits, and identify change in vegetation nearby the site
Ensure haul road safety and compliance with AI
Automatically detect grade, width, crossfalls, berm heights and more.
Integrate machine data to cut maintenance costs
Software superimposes telematic data from trucks. Sensors on the trucks send alerts when parts of the trucks are under stress. The map shows where road maintenance could reduce stress on trucks and cut maintenance costs.
Run simulations to improve truck path and optimize fuel consumption
Use haul trucks trajectories, speed and real-time fuel consumption to assess haul road optimization in terms of geometry.
