Automation Technology for African Copper Mine

Autonomous solutions provider RCT has entered into a project to provide autonomous technology to the Lubambe Copper underground mine in Zambia.

The deal involves RCT commissioning its ControlMaster® Guidance Automation on three Epiroc ST18 and two Sandvik LH517 underground loaders at the mine.

The machines will be managed via five automation stations located in tele-cabins.

Guidance let’s operators remotely control the machine from a comfortable air-conditioned cabin. The system automatically steers the machine to avoid collisions, enabling higher speeds, eliminating damage and improving productivity.

The technology will be installed in June 2019 with operator training to occur simultaneously.
