FLSmidth and AVEVA have signed a global partnership to deliver cutting-edge digitally-enabled solutions and services to the mining industry.
The agreement will accelerate the digitalisation of mining operations and allow miners to benefit from improved performance and productivity globally.
With the new partnership, FLSmidth will work with AVEVA, using its AVEVA PI System to securely integrate and provide various digitally-enabled services to customers.
“The partnership means AVEVA and FLSmidth can accelerate the customer’s digital journey with a more secure, standardised and connected mine,” FLSmidth chief digital officer Mikko Tepponen said.
“It is a significant step that enables miners to move from the optimisation of individual pieces of equipment to full flowsheet efficiency: This is where the major benefits of digital solutions lie.
“We are extremely excited about what we will soon offer customers in terms of improved uptime, operational efficiency, productivity and, of course, sustainability.”
The vast majority of large mining companies around the world use the PI System to support data-driven decisions today and can now leverage their existing investments to gain new advanced insights from FLSmidth.
The partnership will accelerate FLSmidth’s delivery of its MissionZero ambition of sustainable productivity through connected digital services by leveraging AVEVA industry software and a large customer install base.
“AVEVA and our strategic partner Schneider Electric have deep experience in developing data-driven innovation to enable safety, sustainability and profitability across the global mining industry,” AVEVA chief executive officer Peter Herweck said.
“Our new partnership with FLSmidth will accelerate the transition to more sustainable mining operations by integrating world-leading processes and energy technologies for enhanced asset performance at every level.”
FLSmidth and AVEVA will immediately begin to integrate various AVEVA technologies and solutions with the FLSmidth Internet of Things platform and smart product portfolio.
