ABB publishes plan for electric mines

ABB has published a five-point action plan that sets out a roadmap to decarbonizing mining operations from pit to port for any underground or open-pit mine.

The new five-pillar plan – which is available as an eBook on –highlights five steps for total plant electrification across mine hauling operations and power distribution and management. 

It aims to help mining companies on the journey to mine decarbonization and total plant electrification as the industry seeks net zero emissions in operations for both underground and open-pit mines.

ABB acts as single-source supplier with global integration experience for electrical, instrumentation and control. This provides a fast-track way of moving mines from costly and reactive time-based maintenance to planned preventive and predictive interventions. Through remote services, predictive maintenance and upgrades and retrofits, ABB helps mining companies ensure maximum performance throughout the mine’s lifecycle.
