We continue to bring global innovative solutions to the mining industry and its expanding network in South Africa.
Our customers in South Africa trust and want us to help them to act now. The region’s clear ambition to increase efficiencies, reduce accidents and improve upon sustainability practices, aligns with our vision and drive for innovation. We provide them with solutions that are especially focused on benefiting them in the short term and in-year, rather than embarking on large scale and huge capital/resource intensive projects, which is what they need.
We do this by successfully sourcing and implementing simple solutions to make it easy for our customers to make a big impact to their everyday challenges.
If we get data from an Axora pilot on one of our other mines, which shows a positive result, then we will just look to roll that technology out at our mine. We don’t need to spend time trialling for the same outcome.
We have a strong pool of partners in South Africa. Our first-hand experience of the huge drive for innovation and technology in mining is really helping to drive positive change.
Here are some examples of those partners:
One of the largest South African mining companies who own the biggest coal mine in South Africa. Adopting several of Axora's solutions. Read More.
A leading thermal coal exporter, formally Anglo American coal, also adopting several solutions from us. Read More
The largest, single-source supplier of auto-electrical, heavy-duty components, collision avoidance systems and associated technical services. Read More.
Creates technology solutions for mine operations using a combination of best-of-breed products and localised, custom services. Read more.
We have a total of 10 partner organisations so far in South Africa. If you would like to discuss becoming a partner please reach out to Nick.Mayhew@Axora.comto discuss.
We have a number of technology solutions that help our South African customers tackle their industry challenges. Some popular and active examples include:
Example solution: Environmental DNA monitoring solution to track biodiversity of nearby water sources. Reduces the need for extensive expert field surveys surrounding the mine and allows less specialist employees to manage the monitoring. Read more.
Example solution 1. Removing diesel particulates and reducing fuel costs by up to 10%, uses electrolytes to inject small amounts of hydrogen into the air intake of the engine. A non-invasive solution, taking only 45 minutes to install, can drastically reduce fuel costs. Read more.
Example solution 2. Floating fuel-pickup system that delivers clean fuel from the top of the tank to the engine, leaving contaminants at the bottom of the tank. Read more.
Example solution: Water treatment using electrocoagulation, removes contaminants from mine run off water, enabling clean water to be entered back into the ecosystem. Read more.
Example solution: Predictive maintenance solution to cut conveyor belt downtime.
This IIoT monitoring system detects early-stage idler wear and tear, alerting and preventing friction on the conveyor belt meaning conveyor belt fires can be avoided. Read more.
