Mitsubishi Electric Europe: Energy saving in mines and quarries
Most mines and quarries contain a proliferation of electric motors, powering fans, pumps, conveyors, crushers, winches, hydraulic power packs etc. They vary in size and importance from large machines that are critical to site safety and operations to smaller examples that enable basic plant processes such as dust suppression and surface water control. Each one is drawing electricity and unless it is already part of a smart control solution, it could be contributing more towards energy and general cost saving.
