thyssenkrupp and Siemens extend cooperation agreement

Due to the pressures still facing the mining industry to reduce operating costs and enhance productivity, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions and Siemens have decided to prolong their successful collaboration in the mining sector for another five years (Fig.). This means the two companies can continue to provide the mining sector with innovative and reliable transport systems into the future. The technological requirements in mines are becoming increasingly challenging. Declining ore grades and new mines in inaccessible regions mean that more and ore material needs to be transported over ever-longer distances.

Both thyssenkrupp and Siemens have long years of experience in mining and lead the sector in their respective technological fields. The two companies have successfully implemented a number of joint projects in recent years. thyssenkrupp provided the conveyor system for Xstrata Copper in the Antapaccay and Las Bambas copper mines in Peru, for instance. And Siemens provided thyssenkrupp with the direct drive for the world’s largest conveyor belt. The belt conveyor system is being erected in the Peruvian Cuajone mine belonging to the Mexican Southern Copper Corporation (SCC) mining company.
