The company said Maules Creek chose Avoca due to “the maturity of the solution out of the box.” The prebuilt visualisations and dashboards that come with Avoca enable quick identification of operational anomalies and trends. The solution is also backed by a support network of Hitachi Big Data specialists.
Avoca enables sites to collect and compare multi-operation data via the included Wenco Data Warehouse. It also lets them quickly identify trends and inconsistencies between operations, equipment, operator behaviour, and other key performance indicators.
“We’re very excited to have our first Avoca customer here in Australia with Whitehaven’s Maules Creek mine site,” said Jayson Bebek, Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia’s national fleet management system manager. “We are also looking forward to increasing the number of customers using the Avoca Intelligence Suite because, as the number of users grows, they will be able to draw on each other’s experiences in solving operational inefficiencies through the Avoca Community.”
