Ampcontrol/Anglo American Technology Agreement

Ampcontrol and Anglo American have recently joined forces to explore innovative technological solutions within the global mining sector.

Anglo American’s purpose is to reimagine mining to improve people’s lives, with a focus on exploring innovative practices and the latest technologies, for a cleaner, greener, more sustainable world.

For over 50 years, Ampcontrol has been delivering electrical engineering solutions for global manufacturing in the resources, infrastructure and energy sectors, providing award-winning innovations, products, solutions and service.

This joint venture arose from an overarching need to improve electrical and control systems solutions across the industry and unlock the potential for greater global collaboration on new and emerging technologies. 

With safety and sustainability at the forefront for both industry leaders, this important partnership between Ampcontrol and Anglo American will produce research, development and evaluation of quality, global technological solutions.

Join the webinar to learn how Anglo American and Ampcontrol will collaborate on the initial Proof of Concept prototyping phase of the projects.

Co-design and Co-delivery of Ok Tedi’s Three-year Automation and Optimisation Roadmap
Mipac, OK Tedi

The presentation provides an overview of the automation and optimisation of the OK Tedi Mining Limited Copper/Gold Concentrator project co-delivered by Mipac and Ok Tedi.

A strategic delivery project to improve automation that drives process stability, increases production and reduces operating risks, commenced with the co-development of a three-year automation and optimisation roadmap that included three value streams:

  • Digitisation, reporting and analytics
  • Process plant automation and optimisation
  • Capability development and support

Now in the third year of the roadmap, OTML and Mipac continue to collaboratively achieve positive outcomes, introducing other partners, including Siemens, along the way to create greater value.

Wireless Tracking and Situational Awareness in Underground Hardrock Mines
Roobuck, Mobilaris

Mobilaris in collaboration with Roobuck and Kirkland Lake Gold Fosterville Mine have combined expertise and resources to deliver an underground personnel, asset, and vehicle situational awareness solution.

This required developing a new way of communicating with wireless cap lamps based on MQTT, which is meant to simplify the interoperability between vendors and the development of a wireless cap lamp providing WiFi-BLE with IMU, RFID and 2-way signalling.

Mobilaris  Emergency SupportTM, now integrated with Roobuck wireless cap lamps, is being prepared for underground testing. The go-live of Mobilaris Emergency SupportTM together with the cap lamps is planned for the second half of 2021.
