At the end of 2020 the trial operation of the first gearless hoisting machine in Poland driven by low-speed synchronous motor powered by AC inverter installed in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Branch "Rudna" Mining Plant was successfully completed which resulted in receiving the operating authorization.
The 21st International Scientific and Technical Conference Equipment organized by KOMAG Institute of Mining Technology was held on November 4-6, 2020. This time, on account of pandemic situation, the conference was carried out online. Traditionally, the conference objective was oriented onto a presentation of the cutting-edge scientific, research and technical achievements in mining industry. The Research and Development Department of MWM Elektro presented several innovative solutions being already under implementation as well as three conceptual projects which had gained market interest within a short period of time. The company representatives described the system designed to mechanically block the shaft hoist vessel on the selected level. It improves the loading/unloading process during which the vessel remains still despite the rope elasticity. They also discussed the conception of solution which enables to determine the value of the mining hoist overload in the moment of stopping. Such a prototype system has been implemented in a newly installed hoisting machine where measurements of the overload have improved control accuracy.
At the end of the first quarter of 2020 the Company completed the project of Modernization of Hoisting Machine of the Mine Shaft Hoist operated in Western Compartment of L-I Shaft in Lubin. The investment covered the replacement of the hoisting machine (including power supply systems, 8-field 6 kV switchgear, control system as well as shaft signaling and monitoring system).
The interview depicts the most significant moments in the history of the company’s growth, presents its priorities and describes the company main activities. The interview points out the features distinguishing MWM Elektro from the other companies and shows what is the key to its achievements.
The laureates of the eleventh edition of the Mining Success of the Year Competition were awarded on the occasion of Mining New Year’s Concert which was held on February 10, 2020 at the Silesian Philharmonic in Katowice. MWM Elektro Company was granted the award in the “Innovation” category for development and implementation of innovative mobile container-type platform designed for driving of mining shaft hoists . The platform is an universal, ergonomic multi-purpose solution which is easily applicable in various exploitation conditions (the project was recognized by The National Centre for Research and Development, completed under the Smart Growth 2014-2020 operational programme).
The competition is organized annually by The Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Its main purpose is to promote and stimulate initiatives on innovation, projects supporting the development of Polish underground mining industry as well as undertakings that create a positive image of the mining sector.
The Mining Success of the Year Competition is carried out in three categories - “Innovation,” “Ecology,” and “Personality of the Year.” The competition jury members are the experts of the mining industry, especially researchers and practitioners with a long-term experience.
The company closed the end of 2019 with handing over to the Mining Field of „Murcki-Staszic” Colliery, managed by PGG S.A. Coal Company, the modernized power supply and control systems of the hoisting machine, operated as part of the Mine Shaft Hoist of the Western compartment of their Shaft II.
The investment covered the design, delivery and installation along with commissioning of the modernized power supply and control systems of the hoisting machine (including the electropneumatic brake control unit and brake compressed air supply system), shaft signaling system (designed to be intrinsically safe for the modernization purpose) and the 6 kV switchgear. In addition, the scope of work under the Project implementation included preparation of approval documentation, training of the Investor's personnel and rendering of warranty services for modernized equipment.
Our company has carried out the modernization process by implementation of solutions that guarantee certainty and reliability of the shaft hoist operation in the event of failure of one of the power supply systems of the hoisting machine drive.
The 13th International Conference on Safety Operation of Mining Transport Equipment was held in Wisła, Poland on November 7-9, 2019. Lectures were given, among others, by MWM Elektro representatives who presented the cutting-edge solutions for transport equipment used in mining. The company representatives discussed the selected issues of mining hoists modernization process within the scope of both electrical and mechanical components. They also raised the issue of application of the distributed control systems in control units of hoisting machines.
The conference was a multi-faceted presentation of technical and technological achievements within transport equipment used in mining as well as their safety aspects.
