The Xigou Mine of Jiugang Group is located 45 kilometers southwest of Jiayuguan City, Gansu Province. The mine is rich in resources and is an important raw and auxiliary material base for Jiuquan Iron and Steel Group. The working surface of its open-air limestone quarry is located in an alpine mountainous area with an altitude of about 3,400 meters. The temperature difference between summer and winter is 70 degrees. The working environment is difficult and labor-intensive. Therefore, it is imminent and imperative to realize the automation and unmanned operation of mine production as soon as possible.
As early as early 2020, Hunan Chuangyuan, together with partners such as Huawei and China Mobile, carried out the construction and development of the first phase of the pilot project of "5G + Smart Mine" in Jiugang Xigou Mine. This is the first open pit mine covering trucks, shovels and drills in China. The whole-process remote intelligent mining system has been put into actual production use.
The first phase of the project takes the remote intelligent system of open-pit perforation mining and transportation equipment as the entry point, and mainly conducts pilot intelligentization of roller cone drilling rigs, mining trucks and electric shovels involved in the three links of perforation, shovel loading and transportation in the mining operation of Xigou Mine Upgrading and transformation, in conjunction with Gansu Mobile, through the 5G network, the intelligently upgraded equipment instructions are transmitted to the operation control terminal to realize the remote control and intelligent operation of electric shovels, remote operation of mining trucks, automatic driving, reversing into position, automatic unloading, etc. It is the first "5G + Smart Mine" project in Gansu Province.
Among them, the 5G remote intelligent remote control system of the drilling rig constructed by Hunan Chuangyuan High-tech has completed the automation transformation and upgrading, and the managers are in the intelligent management and control center and remotely operated through 5G technology. The number of on-site workers, the separation of operators and equipment, the evacuation of personnel from harsh environments, and the conversion of operating sites from outdoor to indoor, mining workers no longer have to contend with cold weather at high altitudes and the loud noise of mining equipment , no longer have to worry about inhaling a lot of dust at work, which essentially eliminates occupational health hazards, improves production efficiency, and achieves high-quality development.
On the basis of the remarkable results achieved by the first-phase pilot project of "5G + Smart Mine" in Jiugang Xigou Mine, after more than a year of actual production application and mine preliminary investigation and preparation, the second-phase promotion project is officially launched, and the construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2022 , covering the application in more equipment in Xigou Mine, the goal is to fully realize the automation and unmanned operation of the mine production process based on 5G equipment and systems, fundamentally eliminate the hidden dangers of production safety, and finally build a real unmanned intelligence Mine, from domestic leading, international advanced to international leading.
Due to its outstanding practice in the field of "5G + Smart Mine" construction, Hunan Chuangyuan has also been awarded Huawei's "5G Edge DC Best Practice Award", Huawei's "GTS Excellent Partner, Gansu Mine Intelligence Alliance Unit, and China Mobile". Excellent partner".
As the only integrated mine solution provider in China that integrates mining technology, intelligent equipment and centralized control platform, and can realize the autonomous operation of intelligent equipment, Hunan Chuangyuan High-tech will continue to strengthen cooperation with various companies and focus on the current situation of mine problems. And demand, continue to give full play to the advantages of high-end mining equipment and 5G smart mine technology, and strongly help Jiugang Xigou Mine to build a green and smart mine with mechanized replacement, automation and intelligent unmanned.
The construction of intelligent mines is the only way to achieve high-quality development in my country's mining industry, and it is also an important measure to adhere to the new development concept in the new era. Hunan Chuangyuan High-tech carries the corporate mission of "liberating mine workers from the harsh and high-risk environment", and will deeply cultivate the field of mine intelligence, and contribute inexhaustible power to speed up the pace of my country's mine intelligentization and unmanned construction.
