ABB and Perenti collaborate on mining net zero

Mining services group Perenti and automation and robotics specialist ABB has signed an agreement to collaborate and explore approaches to support net zero emissions targets for underground and open-pit mines.

Experts from the two companies will work together to address electrification in mine hauling operations, power distribution, energy efficiency and power management.

They plan to explore business models and solutions to provide wider services for pilot, brownfield and greenfield mining projects to support the electrification of operations.

Perenti Managing Director and CEO Mark Norwell said: “By combining our experience across mining operations and digital solutions with ABB’s leading technologies we are focused on supporting the decarbonization of mining through electrification. We look forward to working with ABB on this exciting new venture.”

ABB has signed several similar initial non-binding collaboration agreements with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), technology innovators and mining companies.

Division President, Process Industries at ABB Joachim Braun said: “Mining customers are committed to facing environmental, societal and economic challenges head on as they aim to decarbonize mining operations.

“With ABB’s sector leading position in electric-mine technology development, and Perenti’s excellence and experience in mine development and mine operations, the scope of this collaboration is a perfect opportunity to make real progress in providing electric solutions that will decarbonize the industry.”

“ABB and Perenti share a vision to develop energy efficient solutions for the mining industry,” said Mark Norwell,
