Sodep implements mine control system for LH Cantagalo

In July 2015, Sodep started the implementation of Minetrack at the LafargeHolcim Cantagalo works in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Technical delivery was due in August.

Sodep explains that the expected improvements by real-time management of the mine operation and reliable production data will lead to higher productivity through resources optimisation (personnel and equipment). It will also reduce operational costs, such as speed control, tracking (origins and destinations), monitoring queues at loading sections or at the crusher, quality control, etc.

Thiago Ferro, LafargeHolcim´s mining manager, believes that "the gains opportunities will happen naturally with improved operational standard, security  enhancement and optimised use of resources, after all, is cultural change for those who are involved."
