VoltVision has completed the first phase of a programme to digitise the power networks at Endeavour Mining’s six West African gold mines. The project has been designed to help maximise the efficiency of Endeavour’s electrical power systems, enabling it to improve power quality, increase uptime and reduce CO2 emissions, while lowering energy consumption and operating costs. Endeavour has identified significant power efficiency gains and cost savings as the project has been rolled out.
VoltVision has progressed to Phase 2 of the roll-out, which is focusing on condition monitoring, failure prevention and further power reduction analysis. This is the only commercially available electrical data analytics system in the mining industry that is able to be both installed, operated and managed remotely, requiring no site visits from VoltVision representatives. This is not only a highly innovative feature but one that is ideal for mines situated in remote and extreme environments.
“Because our technology is plug-and-play, Phase 1 was installed successfully by Endeavour’s own engineers, without any site visits from us or disruption to production. It also proved its suitability for remote and hostile environments.” Manoli Yannaghas Managing Director, VoltVision.
