The Dispatch Fleet Management System manages the haulage cycles of the 39 trucks and six loading units that comprise the mixed-manufacturer fleet at the Wambo open cut coal operation.
Glencore UWJV systems coordinator Rob Lloyd said the mine wanted a system that could provide real-time optimisation of load and haul operations, as well as truck assignments to the run-of-mine and stockpiles for coal feed.
The mine also purchased the Crusher application programming interface a component of the FMS' Crusher Suite and the recently-released Modular Mining Public API.
The Crusher Suite's Truck Diversion utility and the FMS' Dispatch Actions module work in tandem to increase the mine's ability to manage their run-of-mine and stockpile-related challenges.
The Provision System is designed to deliver high-precision guidance to the mine's excavator, dozer, and drill fleet.
By increasing positional accuracy, the Provision System should help ensure the loading and dumping locations, roads, and drill patterns, are completed to design and eliminate rework, and reduce costs.
Modular Mining Australia general manager Greg Sweeney said UWJV had aligned with Modular to supply solutions via technology and expertise to assist in optimising production.
"United Wambo is another opportunity for Glencore and Modular Mining to collaborate to extract maximum value from their operation," he said.
