Fuel Management in Underground Mining
Mining conditions are typically harsh and unforgiving. None more so than underground mining environments. The last few years have seen significant advancements in underground mining which have facilitated deeper mines. This has necessitated better communication networks, and safety and productivity improvements. These developments are in response to ever increasing global demands.
To meet these demands, underground mining operations are continually streamlining ways of working by embracing advanced solutions and advancing processes to enable improved efficiency, cost reduction, and safety. Specifically cost-effective and scalable solutions that exchange data in real time and that can produce reports documenting progress in efficiency and cost management.
One of the key challenges facing these operations is keeping people and assets connected in underground environments, and a crucial asset is fuel. Effective underground fuel management requires purpose-specific communications, network infrastructure, digitalization, and often the adaptation of new technologies.
PetroMan has spent several years developing efficient underground systems to meet the rigorous demands of underground mining fuel management.
