The Electric Mine Conference
April 4 - April 5
Mine electrification, in open pits and underground, is inevitable. Whether the rationale is tied to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving employee health, cutting ventilation costs or increasing productivity, future operations will all be using a form of electricity to power machinery.
While much of the technology to go all-electric remains in its infancy, a number of mines are already using or factoring in the use of electric equipment for the reasons above.
To meet this demand, OEMs are stepping up to the plate, with the help of much more powerful and efficient battery technology that has taken this market from trials and prototypes into a new mainstream.
This is a trend IM and its events division, IM Events, has been watching closely…and, now, we are ready to launch the first major conference with a global focus on this topic.
