ABB and Bridon-Bekaert Ropes Group (BBRG) have agreed to explore the evolution of service capabilities for mine hoist systems located in customer sites worldwide.

The two companies will design and deliver services focused on the improvement of critical operations for mine hoist customers. Preventative maintenance will be further enhanced by the integration of inspections, audits, and spare parts inventory optimisation, now for the complete hoisting system. The focus will be on Australia, Europe, China and North America.

ABB’s digital solution suite for mine hoist monitoring and optimisation, ABB Ability Smart Hoisting, and BBRG’s VisionTek offerings for ropes will be combined under the predictive maintenance category, bringing technologies to provide asset health and condition/performance monitoring platforms and services to mine hoist operations.

Koray Bineklioglu, general manager advanced services at BBRG, said: “Our VisionTek solution will offer customers a complete package, including real-time analysis, digital data access, and expert monitoring of critical working ropes, ultimately enhancing efficiency and reducing downtime.”
