Digitalisation in mining
1st Quarter 2018, News & events


The global mining industry faces major challenges and, in order to stay competitive, companies have to become leaner, stronger and more innovative. In this context, digitalisation plays a crucial role by offering new possibilities to increase productivity and operational excellence.

To present the comprehensive and integrated solutions in its mining portfolio, Siemens recently hosted a Mining Technology Day for its customers, featuring a delegation of leading global and local business and technical experts. “Our customers are using Siemens automation and drives technology to make mining safer, increase productivity and improve efficiency,” said CEO for southern and eastern Africa, Sabine Dall ‘Om. “In 2014, our technology enabled R140 billion of value by helping customers to move 175 million tons of material in key sectors like platinum, gold, diamonds, coal and iron ore.”

Siemens creates sustainable value in the mining industry by optimising plant efficiency, and digitalisation can help tackle major challenges like productivity improvement. The company offers proven digitalisation solutions such as an industry-specific process control system for comprehensive automation (MinAS); an engineering tool for effective plant management (Comos); and a platform for aggregating, relating and presenting operational and business data for analysis (XHQ). Siemens has been active in SA mining since 1897, and today much of the industry depends on it for innovative drive, automation and electrical technology for everything from extraction to transportation and beneficiation.
