​​​​​​​For your world, and mine.
Get the material from ABB Mining Tech Talks
More than 70% of total participants from our live Mining Tech Talk session told us that they are preparing to start, or are already actively looking for energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions reporting systems.

It is not a simple task. ABB not only understands these requirements, we can also equip you to meet them with ABB Ability™ eMine, our purposeful approach, proven methods, electrification & digital systems – all integrated from mine to port.

In case you are looking to achieve the balance between sustainability and productivity targets, be sure to watch our recent Mining Tech Talk session and reach out to us.
White paper: Building the all-electric mine
Many of the world’s largest miners are targeting major reductions in Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
To reach these targets, mining companies will need to make substantial investments in the key enablers of decarbonization – namely electrification of equipment and transitioning to the use of renewables for electricity generation.

In this white paper, Mining Magazine, in association with ABB, take a deep dive into the practicalities of electrifying mobile mining equipment and, by extension, achieving an all-electric mine.
ABB working with AWS to develop digitally integrated all-electric operations for net-zero emissions mining
As we continue to build our collaborations within the mining industry around our ABB Ability™ eMine framework, we are now working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop digitally integrated all-electric operations for net zero emissions.

With this goal in mind, ABB Ability™ Operations Management System (OMS) has already been integrated with heavy-duty EV drivetrain developer MEDATECH Engineering Services Ltd.’s cloud data collection system on AWS, paired with ABB’s fast charging pilot solution, ABB Ability™ eMine FastCharge.
Video: A new trolley assist solution to meet Copper Mountain Mining’s sustainable development goals in Canada
As announced in April 2021, ABB will provide haul truck trolley assist infrastructure at Copper Mountain Mining Corp near Princeton, British Columbia.

Copper Mountain estimates that each haul truck will displace approximately 400 litres of diesel/hour and reduce approximately 1 tonne of CO2/hour while on trolley assist.
