Digital enterprise solutions for the mining industry

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) gaining importance in mining engineering

The increasing demand for raw materials to drive the energy transition, combined with recent logistical challenges, have probably started a supercycle for the mining industry. During the coming years, mining will hardly keep up with demand, resulting in high prices for commodities. We cannot afford that this would impede global decarbonization. Also mining companies realize that they themselves could be among the first to suffer from climate change consequences like extreme temperatures, droughts, and floods. That inspires them to adopt environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria as core part of their corporate strategy, further stimulated in that respect by investors, governments, and regulations.

Smart mining initiatives and autonomous mining are on the rise

These evolutions create a setting that fosters innovation in a sector that is generally more conservative because of its continuous focus on productivity and eliminating risk. The number of initiatives in the field of smart mining is growing, with mining sensors, mining robots, connected mining, IoT in mining, and autonomous haulage systems as typical examples. Many of such applications have demonstrated immediate and significant improvements in both productivity and safety. It helps, of course, that the digital technologies these capabilities require, have already matured in other industries and therefore entail less risk.

Faster design and delivery of smart mining equipment

Mining equipment OEMs must realize that as this innovation wave has taken flight, it can go very fast. In a smart mining setting, there is little room for intermediate forms. Applications such as connectivity and autonomous operation only make sense if all equipment can participate. OEMs must upgrade their fleet with such digital capabilities, while securing their daily business by timely delivery of mainstream mining equipment. With Siemens Digital Industries Software solutions, mining equipment OEMs can successfully navigate through this complex transition period. Our digital twin and digital thread approaches help manufacturers accelerate the design of any mining equipment type, from mainstream to advanced.
