BHP Innovation Centre Boosts WA Operations



Since its introduction two years ago, BHP’s innovation centre at Eastern Ridge, Western Australia has been a hub for creating, monitoring and understanding data.

One of the new technologies being used includes acoustic equipment monitoring, as BHP’s focus shifts from making bigger equipment and vehicles to optimising its existing equipment and processes, boosting productivity.

BHP innovation centre director Jamie Bennett said technology such as acoustic equipment monitoring gives the company access to real-time information to improve its decision-making processes.
