Stoilensky GOK CEO Sergei Napolskikh and NLMK Digital Transformation Director Sergei Kazantsev spoke about the company's digital services at the international online conference "Fair of digital and technological solutions for mining and metallurgical companies" (Metals & Mining Tech Fair), organized by BCG with the support of Forbes Russia.
The leaders presented solutions that began to be applied at SGOK in 2021.
An intelligent enrichment process control system was introduced at the concentrator. The system analyzes the characteristics of the ore supplied to beneficiation and suggests the optimal operation of the mills.
Digital solutions using machine vision are also being introduced at SGOK. One of these services, for example, allows you to stabilize the quality of raw materials for a processing plant, recognizing the wrong size ore and sending it for re-grinding.
Dozens of digital solutions have been implemented at Stoilensky GOK: a digital model of reserves for optimal development of the deposit, a service that measures the amount of overburden based on data from drones, online logistics and dispatch optimization, etc.
NLMK Group's digital transformation program currently includes hundreds of solutions. The company has created a digital ecosystem that ensures effective teamwork, the sustainability of the products created, the accumulation of knowledge and an environment for interaction with more than 30 partner companies, including through the creation of their own platforms for collaborative development and machine learning.
