Rockwell Automation Wins Major Contract to Develop World’s Largest Open Pit Mine in Chile
罗克韦尔自动化赢得高额合同,开发智利全球最大规模的露天铜矿

Codelco, the National Copper Corporation of Chile and one of the world’s largest copper producers, has awarded a major contract with an approximate value of $50 million U.S. to Rockwell Automation to supply a number of important systems for the Chuquicamata underground mine, a “super cave” mine in Chile.

全球最大铜矿生产商之一的智利国家铜矿公司 Codelco 与罗克韦尔自动化签订了一份价值约5000万美元的高额合同,罗克韦尔自动化将为Codelco提供一系列重要系统,用于开发智利的丘基卡马塔“超级崩落型”地下铜矿。

Rockwell Automation will collaborate in the transformation of the century-old, open-pit mine, one of the world’s largest, into a technologically advanced “super cave” mine that uses a block-caving extraction process. This advanced method is expected to extend the life of the mine by at least 40 years, improving its asset utilization.

罗克韦尔自动化将与 Codelco 通力协作,促使这座已有百年历史、规模居世界前列的露天铜矿实现技术升级,成为采用矿块崩落开采法的“超级崩落型”铜矿。这项先进的开采技术预计可将铜矿的服务年限延长40年以上,从而实现更高的资产利用率。

Cave mining techniques are becoming increasingly popular because they yield high production rates at lower costs. Block caving is a mining method in which blocks of ore are undercut to induce caving, allowing it to break up and be drawn off, pulled by gravity.

崩落开采法能够以更低的成本实现较高的生产率,因此得到了愈加普遍的应用。矿块崩落开采法的原理是对矿块进行拉底,诱发矿体在重力的作用下崩落,从而逐渐分解出矿。

The contract includes a detailed engineering, supply, configuration and assembly of four systems that comprise the mine’s control system. This consists of an integrated operational platform, security system, supervision and control network, predictive maintenance and a general administrative network.

铜矿的控制系统由四个子系统组成,合同中详细规定了这些系统的工程设计、供应、配置及装配等事宜。系统包括集成运营平台、安全系统、监视及控制网络、预测性维护和通用管理网络。

“We are pleased that Codelco has selected us for this epic mining project,” said Alejandro Capparelli, president, Rockwell Automation Latin America. “We are committed to helping our customers bring the connected enterprise to life. Our work together will increase mine throughput and lower operating costs. By leveraging Rockwell Automation’s integrated control and information systems, connected services and deep domain expertise, Codelco will extract more value at every stage of their mining operation.”

“很高兴 Codelco 选择由我们来执行这一大型开采项目,”罗克韦尔自动化拉美地区总裁Alejandro Capparelli说道。“我们致力于帮助客户实现互联企业愿景。我们双方的合作不仅可以提升铜矿产量,同时也有助于降低运营成本。借助罗克韦尔自动化的集成控制和信息系统、互联服务以及深厚的专业经验,Codelco在各个开采作业阶段都将获得更多的价值回报。”

Rockwell Automation is currently working on the engineering and construction phase, in advance of a project start-up by mid-2019. Annual production is projected to be 320,000 tons of fine copper and 15,000 tons of molybdenum.

罗克韦尔自动化目前已提前进入工程与建造阶段,该项目将于2019年年中启动。预计年产320,000 吨纯铜和15,000吨钼。
