Special attention was paid to a drilling-and-blasting operations automation: 10 Atlas Copco drilling rigs were equipped with high-precision navigation system and drilling parameters control system. The enterprise now can use the functionality of central dispatch room and daily tour reports, which allow easy monitoring of the enterprise operation. Kovdor complex now also switched to extraction accounting based on real weights in dump trucks (BelAZ, Komatsu, Caterpillar) vessels, that provides the management with complete picture of a technological transport operation.

Now the administration and operation personnel are being involved in the system’s operation. Next steps of system development, of its integration with the information systems of other EuroChem enterprises are also planned.
