Partnering with BHP Billiton – Olympic Dam, Equipment Data Acquisition Project

We have recently had verbal approval of the Equipment Data Capture project for BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam operation. The main focus of the project is expose Minlog’s DSF technology, which has to date only been applied for our MineSuite purposes, towards customers in order for them to deliver equipment data acquired from vehicles and make such available on the server, in an environment where communications coverage is limited.

The project will use a BHP’s supplied Datalogger unit, acting as the data acquisition device as it relates to  production equipment. At this stage, the data is simply being passed on (trough the interaction of equipment), but the project is the first step along the maturity path that will enable Production data automation and Production Management at Olympic Dam.
