The Dawn of Variable Mining
The conversation around GHG emissions reduction in mining has changed dramatically. Miners have gone from simply looking for cleaner options to power continuous, flat load operations, to rethinking their whole designs and processes to ensure the best use of dynamic green power generation. Miners are beginning to understand that by varying how and when they operate they can maximize the benefit of renewables and minimize production costs. In the first article, we discuss the pathway to variable mining with Siemens, Element 25 and Agnico Eagle.
Element 25 features on pages 8 to 11.
