Barminco’s Remote System Operates Loaders 1,000 Kilometres Away

Barminco has announced that it successfully piloted an operations centre that allows it to remotely manipulate, from the comfort of an office, underground equipment used at mine sites around the world.

The test took place at Barminco’s head office in Perth and the machine being operated was working at Independence Group’s Nova nickel-copper-cobalt underground mine, located almost 1,000 kilometres away in Australia’s Goldfields.
