ELECTRIC BATTERY-POWERED EQUIPMENT

Once SDMT outlines the necessary equipment for your electric mine, we can also play a role in sourcing and installing that equipment. Through SDET, we develop and supply the necessary cutting-edge batteries to power heavy-duty mining equipment and can guide you through the selection process as well as the implementation process.

The Industry Problem

Simply put: diesel emissions. In underground metal mining, the vast majority of machines run on diesel engines. These are known to have low energy efficiency that leads to high fossil fuel consumption, high heat emissions and greenhouse gases. According to mining regulations, an enormous amount of fresh air is needed to dilute emissions.

This leads to high ventilation expenses associated with rising electrical demands, which severely affects mining costs. And to make matters worse, evidence shows that exposure to heat emissions and greenhouse gases is linked to an increased risk of developing lung cancer (IARC 2012), thereby putting miners in health-compromising situations.

The SDMT Solution

Electric equipment is a new advancement for the mining industry. SDMT’s mandate is to provide mining companies and OEMs the engineering to implement these new innovations while at the same time continuing R&D for future improvement.

Compared to internal combustion engines, the electric conversion of a mine can offer substantial advantages including better energy efficiency (1/6), no harmful gas emissions, fewer heat emissions (1/3), less maintenance time (no oil changes), decreased ventilation requirements, reduced operating costs, improved working environment (air quality) and reduced environmental impact.

The electrification of a mine is projected to offer $10-25 million in savings per year for a typical underground mine in Canada.
