Boliden’s Kevitsa mine, in northern Finland, deployed Modular Mining’s DISPATCH, ProVision and MineCare systems.
Modular Mining’s solutions were selected to optimize haulage, improve loading accuracy and increase availability across more than 30 pieces of equipment in Kevitsa’s mixed-manufacturer fleet, Modular reported.
The DISPATCH Fleet Management System (FMS) and ProVision Machine Guidance System replaced previous technologies at the mine. DISPATCH FMS will optimize the mine’s haulage cycle, while the ProVision Excavator system assumes responsibility for machine guidance, Modular reported.
MineCare offers cloud-based, proactive, asset health monitoring and maintenance management capabilities.
Modular said the successful deployment was due in part to the assistance of local Komatsu equipment dealer Suomen Rakennuskone Oy. “We are proud to be part of an integrated Komatsu solution that combined world-class equipment, strong local dealer support, and our all-makes technology,” said Greg Lanz, vice president, business development, Modular.
