Implemented new control systems for underground mining explosives delivery. Works included remote HMI and support as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Orica’s existing control systems for underground mining application was becoming obsolete and new technologies were available to bring new capabilities to their operations.
Time was limited and Orica required a new fit-for-purpose solution to meet their customers’ needs across the globe.
As a leading provider of explosive products and blasting services to the mining and tunnelling industries, with customers in over 50 countries, it is critical for Orica to provide products able to withstand the worlds most rugged environments and support their commitment no harm and zero accidents of any kind.
SAGE Automation was engaged and immediately undertook an extensive User Requirement Study from which to design a system.
The result is a system which will meet the global needs of today’s and tomorrow’s surface and underground mining operations.
Off the back of this project, SAGE Automation received a Commendation at the Engineers Australia Excellence Awards in the category of Control Systems, Networks, Information Processing and Telecommunications for the Orica LOADPlus U control system.
