An operation connected
Today, the entire mining operation is connected: corporate offices in Santiago de Chile, the central pumping station, the entire distributed pumping infrastructure, even the cameras at the mine’s key production sites. By leveraging the network, the mine was able to lower costs as well as preserve fresh water, which is desperately needed for personal and agricultural use. As a second act, the network is now primed to support additional mining sites and emerging technologies such as remote mining devices─making miners’ jobs safer. And to Manuel Fernandez Pollán, that’s the kind of outcome that makes it all worthwhile.
