Weir Minerals will utilise the AVEVA PI System™ to collect, contextualise and analyse data streams, which will become the data foundation of its Synertrex® digital ecosystem. This – along with AVEVA Data Hub, a cloud-native hub for aggregating and contextualising on-premises and remote data – will offer the mining industry a unique solution for securely connecting mining operators with Weir Minerals as an OEM.

The business model will provide a variety of flexible integration solutions that will make it easier for miners to integrate with the Weir Minerals’ Synertrex® digital ecosystem. It uses a secure and simplified approach to access and share real-time and historical operations data.

These shared ecosystems will provide miners and Weir Minerals with full data transparency and an easy-to-access, real-time 360-degree view of all Synertrex®-enabled equipment and processes. They will also be the basis of the further development of digital twins and predictive algorithms, which will provide decision-makers with recommended actions and real-time decision support.
