The project "Digital Mine" at Yakovlevsky GOK

18/02/2019

Yakovlevsky GOK introduces a tracking system, emergency notification and data transmission underground.
The project “Digital Mine” will allow to position employees and equipment with an accuracy of up to 20 meters. Over 100 sensors, a Wi-Fi system and more than eight kilometers of optical fiber will be installed on all levels. The miners will receive Luch-4 headlamps with pagers to communicate with the dispatcher.
As the technical director of Alpha-Safety LLP explained, the system is wireless, it works on power supplies that rarely need to be replaced. Allows you to collect the necessary information to account for the production indicators of the enterprise, to reduce them into single reports and documents.
The specialists of the contractor’s company – Alpha-Safety LLP will install data transmission systems, data collection and tracking systems, install video surveillance, gas monitoring and dispatch systems.

"Vorkutaugol" in 2019 increases the volume of investment by 18%, to 6.2 billion rubles

06/02/2019

The amount of investments of JSC Vorkutaugol - one of the largest coal-mining companies in Russia, which are part of PJSC "Severstal" - in 2019 will be 6.2 billion rubles. Compared with 2018, the volume of investments increased by 18%.

Most of the funds - 2.7 billion rubles - will be used to replace mining and coal preparation equipment, freight and passenger vehicles. For the construction of capital mine workings - 1.3 billion rubles. At the end of construction of the ventilation shaft number 4 of the Zapolyarnaya mine, the construction of the ventilation shaft number 4 of the Komsomolskaya mine and the reconstruction of railway bridges, the company will invest 1.6 billion rubles.

The key project for the development of production with financing of 378 million rubles will be the acquisition and installation on the industrial site of the ventilation station No. 4 of the Zapolyarnaya mine of the modular degassing station. It will allow maintaining a safe aerogas environment in the mine, bringing to the surface the associated gas from the satellite beds.
Also, Vorkutaugol will allocate 271 million rubles to the program to expand the functionality of the Strata security system. This will make it possible to deploy a high-performance system for transmitting information and controlling technological processes and mining equipment in the company's mines.

“The main goal of the current investment program is to stabilize production. We strive for smooth operation with clearly predictable results. As always, considerable attention will be paid to security issues. Last year, we introduced the Strata multifunctional security system and set up its basic functions. Now we intend to go in the direction of automation, ”said Sergey Lihorpud, Director General of Vorkutaugol.

Strata’s HazardAvert keeps safety on target

28/01/2109

Of all the technology developed over mining’s history for safety, and even more specifically the safety of workers performing tasks around heavy machinery on an everyday basis, one of the most recent is proximity detection systems. The still-rapidly evolving technology functions seamlessly in mines large or small, can be customized for any mine’s budget, and allows operations to focus on specific areas of concern.

While the systems are still non-compulsory for some of the world’s operations, the decision of which system is best is no less vital. US-headquartered Strata, knowing what a crucial role proximity detection plays in everyday mining, has developed and enhanced its HazardAvert® system for both coal and hard rock mines, underground and surface operations. The system promotes safer work practices, increased safety awareness, accident prevention and greater overall production.

Strata, founded in 1992, was first known for its secondary roof control technology, engineered to provide safer roof support. The company’s product portfolio has grown over the decades to include the best options in underground communication systems, emergency refuge alternatives and, of course, HazardAvert – one of the most popular and technologically advanced proximity system available to mines across the world.

HazardAvert is an electromagnetic system for recognising both equipment and individual personnel in the ‘red zone’ field of operating machine. For vehicles that move between the surface and underground operations, HazardAvert offers continuous coverage without the need for user interaction.

With vehicle-to-vehicle detection, all operators are warned of potential danger and with vehicle-to-pedestrian detection, both the vehicle operator and the pedestrian are warned simultaneously.

There’s no doubt that proximity detection technology has changed accident prevention for the better and, the more effective the system, the greater the benefit. The Strata HazardAvert system prevents collisions and accidents by alerting machine operators and pedestrians of imminent dangers, and has the capability to interlock into machine controls for autonomous movement prevention and emergency braking. With close range, confined areas and machinery traveling in reverse all proven to have the highest rate of accidents; HazardAvert has been designed to excel in these environments.

In today’s data-driven industry, nearly every element of a mining operation can be analysed and studied to offer education to a mine on how things can be improved. A part of ensuring long-term mine safety is learning from mistakes, HazardAvert has the ability to record and store interaction data. This includes alarms triggered, the individual(s) or vehicle(s) triggering them and the duration of time spent in direct danger. On demand, the system can produce reports for download and analysis, which can assist in both enforcing safe practices and new and refresher personnel training, and the logged data can be transformed into reports for measuring productivity, analyzing equipment operating status and maintenance patterns and even incident reporting.

“Selecting a proximity detection and collision avoidance system for mining operations is an important decision,” according to Strata’s CEO, Mike Berube. “Operators want to know it will increase safety and remain robust long-term.”

Berube adds that, when mines are working more safely and more efficiently, they also begin to be more productive.

“In short, preventing accidents that create periods of downtime produces substantial savings. Costs for the HazardAvert system itself are quickly returned via greater uptime and activity, decreased insurance, legal and medical costs and less time and property lost. But most importantly, personnel safety is enhanced and highlighted.”
