Oyu Tolgoi deploys Hexagon CAS

Hexagon has partnered with Rio Tinto to deploy more than 200 of its Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS) at the Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia – the first deployment of its kind in the Asian country.

“The integrity of Hexagon’s product development is why we chose to build a partnership,” said Khorolsuren Ganzorig, superintendent, Mine Support, Oyu Tolgoi. 

“Since deploying CAS in our operation, I have noticed a drastic change in our operators’ driving behaviour. This will help to fulfil Rio Tinto’s and Oyu Tolgoi’s strong ambition to keep people safe in our mining operations.”

Hexagon said it is dedicated to supporting the future of mining in Mongolia and is establishing a permanent presence there. This will allow the company to fulfil a commitment to providing localised support for a growing partnership with Oyu Tolgoi and the broader mining industry.

Oyu Tolgoi is one of the largest known copper and gold deposits in the world.
