Vulkan: Uniting Tradition and Innovation

Top 10 Mining Tech Solution Companies in Europe - 2020

As the mining industry went through a technology-enabled transformation, various ground-breaking innovations helped redefine how mines operate and deliver much-needed productivity gains. A number of those innovations have continued to exceed expectations since then, resulting in meaningful operational improvements. With the productive use of new technology like spatial data through three-dimensional modelling, virtual reality, and augmented reality, the mining industry has been able to gain insights into mine structures at a decreased price and impact on the ecosystem.

Also helping gain more insight into the mine environment are geographic information systems (GIS), which solve real-life issues of miners where location and accessibility are critical. Geospatial data represents the location, size, and shape of any object, allowing miners to gain visual data on the represented system.

For the rapidly evolving mining industry, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have majorly impacted how mines today make future choices. While AI helps with more decision-making at insight-driven firms, smart data and ML improve production workflow, mine safety, and operational efficiency.

As the mining industry continues in its attempt to reduce costs and lessen its environmental impact, Enterprise Technology Review has compiled a list of “Top 10 Mining Tech Solution Providers in Europe - 2020” that enables the mining industry to move rapidly toward optimal industry efficiency. This edition also features insights from thought leaders on the latest industry trends, innovations, and best practices to ensure the mining ecosystem’s reliability and safety.

We present to you Enterprise Technology Review’s “Top 10 Mining Tech Solution Providers in Europe - 2020.”
