Industry View: It’s Not A Case Of All Or None
Greg Lane, Queensland Resources Council, Australia.
Keynote: A Giant Leap For Humanity
Frederick D. Palmer, Total Spectrum/SGA, USA, argues for the importance of 21st Century coal in meeting global energy needs.
Down – but not out
Indonesia is the biggest supplier of thermal coal into the seaborne market – and has suffered significantly as that market has slumped. Jonathan Rowland reports on the challenges and prospects for the Indonesian coal sector.
A Major Overhaul
In the mining industry, energy efficiency and productivity are paramount. According to Joy Mazumdar, Siemens Inc., USA, incorporating onboard energy storage systems on mining trucks could generate gains in both of these areas.
When Less Is More
Josh Swank, Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc., USA, presents the case for tailgates, showing how they can help increase return on investment.
Heiko Kertscher, Sandvik Mining, Germany, explores options for when a standard crushing solution is not enough.
Maurice Malaza, Tenova TAKRAF Africa, South Africa, tells World Coal about the Bradford Breaker and how this venerable piece of equipment is meeting the changing demands of South Africa's coal industry today.
Thorsten Roettgers and Arpad Csay, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, China, outline how the installation of a second in-pit crushing and conveying system at the Yiminhe mine in Mongolia is helping improve cost savings and reduce truck traffic.
The Evolution of Pumps
Tony Lawson, Weir Minerals Europe, explains how evolving pump design and condition monitoring help drive efficient production at coal mines around the world.
In Full Flow
Dr Andreas Wahl, KAMAT, Germany, describes how to obtain perfect flow control and high energy efficiency at longwall pump stations.
Inhale Safety; Exhale Danger
Maurice Jones, on behalf of Trolex Ltd, UK, introduces the concept of ventilation on demand.
Making Sense Of Gas Monitoring
The product development team at Becker Mining Systems, Germany, details how new technology can improve atmospheric and environmental monitoring applications in mines.
