Case Study: Cloud Based Drawings in the Clouds of PNG
Ok Tedi Mine is the most active mining operation in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Their operation contributes 15% - 20% to PNG’s overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP), producing 500,000 ounces of gold and 170 tonnes of copper concentrate annually.
The mine is located 2,000m above sea level in an area of dense rainforest where annual rainfall can reach up to 10,000mm per annum. These operating conditions provide unique challenges, which test validity and integrity of ongoing development and innovation roll outs.
Following a long legacy of overcoming the logistical, and communications issues associated with continuous operations in one of the world’s most remote areas, the Ok Tedi team realised it was time to gain more control of their engineering operations and capital projects.
