RMT Trolex presents safety and productivity evidence to coal miners

first_imgRMT Trolex presents an exciting set of data around strata management and ground control technology that demonstrates 40%+ increases in productivity and the near elimination of related injury in longwall operations. At the Ninth International Symposium on Field Measurement in Geomechanics RMT Trolex presents a series of studies and field trials of electronic strata monitoring systems that show massive potential benefits to the coal mining industry.Headline figures from the research show an average of 25% uptime in longwall operations resulting in a 40%+ increase in production rates following the installation of an electronic strata monitoring solution. In addition to this a 49% cost-saving was demonstrated through a more intelligent distribution of support collateral and a 65%+ reduction in injury/health related reports through better hazard warning reduced usage of heavy equipment.RMT Trolex Business Manager John Toplis commented “I’m excited by the results of the studies that have been carried out and what this means both in terms of safety in coal mines, but also in the impact on productivity levels at a time when the coal mining industry in under incredible pressure to reduce costs. We can demonstrate a return on investment within two months of installation and revenues improvements of around $2m per annum in a typical mine.”Trolex recently acquired RMT and the company is now looking to take its world-leading strata management solutions to a global market.last_img read more
