In the end of May 2016 Russian distributor of Reutech Mining - VIST Group deployed the first MSR 300 at the one of the biggest gold mines in Russia at Far East region. The region has very harsh environmental conditions - long and cold winters and therefore MSR 300 has special -50C weather kit that will ensure the best performance during the whole year and 24\7. The mine itself is operating since 2007 but already achieved 300 meters deep and will go deeper and MSR will help the workers to ensure their safety and feel secure in this deep open pit.
MSR 300 installed at the Gold Mine in Russia
VIST Group provided the complete services including installation of the WiFi MESH network kit with -50C power boxes and autonomy in case 220V is turned off. One of the feature deployed is SMS and e-mail notifications of the geotechs and mining management whenever there are any alarms by the MSR to ensure that all personnel and mining equipment will be evacuated it time. The mine only starts the operation of MSR and already can see the reliability of MSR 300.
One of the thing to be installed in future is the automatic notification of all vehicles through integration with Mine Fleet Management system that mine is going to deploy in future.
