Green Recovery in the Mining Industry Through Energy Efficient Drives Technology

The mining industry must forgo its traditional energy consumption patterns, in a bid to ensure that the sector de-carbonize towards a greener and sustainable method of exploration. Given the need to increase energy supply in a globally carbon constrained environment, the mining trade needs to improve its energy efficient technologies, such as electrical variable speed drives, which could reduce energy consumption drastically.

The fundamentals of AC Variable Frequency Speed drive technology persist, but many elements are rapidly changing in aid to move towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly mining future. Increasingly, software is embedded in today’s mine processing components, offering new functionalities and enabling the AC drive to play a larger role in the processing plant.
