Water is the new gold in mining. Increasing environmental regulations will extend the need to control and monitor water usage throughout the entire mine life cycle. A decline in the grade of mined materials will increase the intensity of mineral processes and water usage.
Solutions and Benefits
In response to environmental concerns and regulations, miners are looking to implement effective strategies to monitor water consumption, quality and discharges.
Schneider Electric delivers a comprehensive solution for water management: telemetry to monitor and control operations such as water quality, water levels and pumping across dispersed and/or inaccessible areas. Mobility tools for water inspections, especially at non-instrumented locations; and reporting and visualisation tools for a single snapshot of water performance at all of your plants and sites.
> Proactive monitoring to respond quickly to water incidents
> Minimise dependence on external contractors
> Visualise water information under a production context
The impact of mining activities on the environment and the resulting regulatory pressure has forced the industry to move towards more sustainable operations. The task of gathering and analysing environmental data is complex, and the path forward is not always clear.
