MineWare to optimize dragline productivity at largest U.S. lignite mine

MineWare’s world-leading Pegasys Dragline Monitor will be introduced to North American Coal’s Freedom mine this month to improve the performance of their Bucyrus dragline fleet.

Freedom mine management selected Pegasys as their preferred monitoring system to increase the utilization of their dragline fleet and increase production, sustainably.

MineWare North America Regional Vice President Greg Ladewig said Pegasys will enable Freedom mine to work more efficiently by producing the same amount of material at a lower cost per yard or produce more material for the current cost per yard.

“Pegasys optimizes dragline payload, improves mine plan compliance by providing the operators with real-time feedback,” he said.

“The system supports operators in the cab to make fast, confident and correct decisions whilst improving productivity and reducing machine stress.

“We are proud to expand our relationship with the North American Coal company and support them in improving the productivity and efficiency of their dragline operations.

“Their investment in Pegasys demonstrates their commitment to maximizing returns through advanced technologies and operational excellence.”

Pegasys is an advanced payload and mine compliance monitoring system that enables mine sites to establish best operator practice.
