Customer Value Delivered

  • CAS Generation 3 alerted Haul Truck operator of approaching grader on off-side blind spot using clear voice alert (“Grader – Right”) potentially preventing a collision - Australian large cap coal miner
  • Haul Truck operator reports unexpected CAS alerts from safe-passing due to poor haul road maintenance in wet weather conditions resulting in narrowing of the haul road and reduced haul truck passing gap - Australian large cap coal miner
  • CAS Generation 3 analytics identified machine operators working outside standard mine site procedures allowing change in risky behavior - Australian large cap coal miner

Our customers are behind the most forward-looking progress in mining

Digital Mine Newcrest CAS Success Story
Technology intervenes to prevent mine fleet traffic incidents

Mine sites are governed by rigorous safety procedures and policies, but even so, with employees both on foot and often necessarily driving light vehicles in the vicinity of hydraulic shovels and excavators, haul trucks, mobile drills and dozers, accidents and SPIs occur.

Digital Mine Case Study
Head of the CAS

BHP, the world’s leading mining operator, is no stranger to Wabtec’s Digital Mining solutions. We’ve partnered with them successfully around the world, most recently in Australia, where they’ve seen the safety benefits of our CAS solution in action. Now they want that same ‘best-in-class’ safety system fitted to their extensive fleet in their Escondida mine in northern Chile, the world’s largest copper mine.
