VDMA 46 VDMA MINING SUPPLEMENT • 2019 Mining An RWE TI training group visits the Hambach mine during a belt shift operation with a German-Portuguese interpreter. Since 2015, RWE TI has been consulting with a major iron ore producer developing a new opencast mine. Due to the proximity of the mine site to the beautiful rainforest area, local environmental regulations call for the strict reduction of emis- sions. Truck-shovel mining methods generate significantly high emissions. So, the mine operator decided to implement an In-Pit Crushing and Conveying System (IPCC) powered by renewable energy from hydro power. RWE is well-known for its more than 120 years mine and power operator heritage, with specific oper- ator expertise in opencast mining and IPCC. In addition, RWE TI has more than 50 years of consulting history in pooling and reprocessing RWE operator expertise from their own mine op- erations using this knowledge in a structured way to help other companies worldwide execute successful projects in raw materi- al and energy production. During mid-2016, RWE TI was asked to offer a long-term workforce development program for the fu- ture mine operation, aiming to produce 90 million metric tons (mt) of iron ore annually by the end of 2020. Guiding and mentoring an open-pit mining operation in pro- duction ramp-up phase using new fully continuous mining equip- ment was the key target. The partnership began by establishing an on-site OpEx-training program to give the mining company's leadership team visibility to the operation's KPIs, including gaps between current and planned performance. So far more than 20% of the respective operation staff have been trained by RWE TI in small groups. Advanced training packages covered a vari- ety of themes aiming to optimize the mine's organizational struc- ture, production processes and overall performance, focusing on continuous mining, bulk material transport, shiftable belt convey- ors and a technical understanding of continuous mine operation planning.

In addition, RWE TI embedded technical assis- tance at the customer's mine sites, to implement changes as part of the customer's teams and transfer key skills to the staff. Key suppliers and development partners for belt conveyor components provided technical visits to factories, explaining valuable insights of high quality and durable products.
