Large Coal Company Increases Efficiency with Eka Control Systems and Plan Performance App
In mining organizations, there is tremendous opportunity to improve efficiency by automating how material is moved, processed, and blended. Automation helps organizations optimize order fulfillment and maximize operations and contract margins. Combining advanced automation with integrated real-time analytics improves day-to-day operations even more.
Eka’s Control Systems and Plan Performance App support the organization in bulk stock management, process management, task execution, and business intelligence.
With Eka’s bulk handling solution on Eka’s CM platform, the company was able to operate its physical assets at maximum efficiency in the storage or movement of physical bulk commodities — providing the most throughput for the least amount of downtime and cost.
The company shortened its loading times by automating task changes and backups when needed. The solution eliminates operator error, improves plan performance, and increases predictability of production plans. In addition, it allows machines to work closer and remain safe, while reducing downtime between operations.
Reclaimer efficiency improved with constant and higher average reclaim rates and reduced wear and tear. Stacking accuracy also improved, thereby maximizing stock yard space. The business can access up-to-the-minute status and inventory details.
