Mining is a complex industry. Extracting raw material in different shapes, sizes and chemistries from the earth's crust and transforming it into a standardised and high-quality final product is a challenging process, not to mention that it involves huge material movement, scheduling, synchronisation and tracking.
Schneider Electric helps maximize mining stakeholders return and build a sustainable business that is responsible, efficient and profitable with integrated automation, power and process digital environment along a unified value chain.
Addressing critical mining challenges
Mining market faces a “make or break” moment on the industry impacted by trends such as sustainability, market volatility, shorten investment cycles, or workforce shift. How mining adapts, operationalizes and integrates those elements will define successful mining companies in the next years. It is a technological transformation but also a cultural one as these companies evolve to cleaner, decarbonized and integrated value chain practices.
