There is no doubt that 2021 was an interesting year for everybody. During this month we take some time to count our achievements and learn how we can further improve and serve the world. We also produced and launched our solutions video this year, to better illustrate how IMA Smart Mining Solutions work together to improve mining efficiency and reduce mining costs. For more IMA Smart Mining Solutions please visit our YouTube Channel.
With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have reduced and, in many cases, halted completely our travel plans to visit our customers. We worked hard to transform and adapt to the new global economical and environmental situations, and this led to remote deliveries and installation of our smart mining solutions. This month we delivered and installed the IMACON remotely in Peru. Our solutions are installed and used in a copper mine.
IMA Smart Mining Solutions was recently invited to write an article on sampling and analysis solutions for Africa Mining Insight. The article discusses and highlights the benefits the IMA Smart Mining Solutions core products have for the mining industry.
The Journal of Cleaner Production was recently published, as part of the EU-funded ITERAMS project. Ima Engineering is taking part in the EU-funded project ITERAMS, “Integrated Mineral Technologies for More Sustainable Raw Material Supply” and our CEO Jukka Raatikainen contributed to this article which is a review of closed water loops with ore sorting and tailings valorisation for a more sustainable mining industry.
We are proud to announce that IMA Engineering is a partner in the new EU-Project “illuMINEation”. Ready to kick-start in September, the project’s aim is to embed digital thinking into the heart of the mining industry, improving the digital skills of the personnel in the mining business and by enhancing cooperation.
The Covid-19 epidemic has pushed mining technology companies to develop new ways of delivering and maintaining their products.
During the COVID19 crises traveling to mining sites is difficult. This might be a challenge for the foreseeable future. Even before the current crises, IMA embarked on a digital transformation journey to be able to support its customers remotely and to reduce its carbon footprint due to traveling related emissions.
The new Era of modern sorting is here. IMA will explain Modern Sorting in the coming weeks and months with examples and cases.
We invite you all to enjoy a glass of wine with us and meet other Mining Finland members and stakeholders in a small cocktail event.
