Mining Equipment

The core focus of GE’s mining equipment business is to provide specialist underground and surface mining solutions to improve productivity and safety. GE Mining achieves this through our capability and competency in the functional areas of Engineering Design, Manufacturing and After Sales Service and Support.

Solutions

GE’s mining systems are the only ones in the world that mine coal selectively by cutting and loading low-ash coal on the first swing. 

Products include instrumentation for underground coal directional drilling and coal seam degasification, as well as collision avoidance equipment and systems for open cut mining operations. 

The GE Mine Cruiser utilizes the latest in low emission mechanically injected diesel engine technology, further developed to suit use in underground coal mining through advanced explosion protection methods.

GE’s Multi-Purpose Vehicle Series feature exceptional
design characteristics with durable main frames, quality components, and maintenance-friendly hydraulic and electrical systems.

GE’s maintenance vehicles and slide-in maintenance centers are ideal for keeping equipment in top condition and improving efficiency underground.

The Hi-Cap XL is recognized as the most flexible continuous haulage system in the mining industry, capable of operating in true 90° cross-cuts.

GE’s Battery Powered Load Haul Dump (LHD) Vehicle is suited to the harshest environments in hard- and soft-rock mines across the globe.

Mining Solutions 

The Mining Solutions team works with customers to provide tailored solutions that help reduce costs and enhance operational efficiencies:

  • Remote Distributed Power: We are shifting to LNG to reduce operational expenditures.

  • Electrolyte Cogeneration: We are going to provide more energy efficiency by using heat to reduce energy intensity in heating electrolytes.

  • Capital Expenditure to Operational Expenditure: Will assist companies in paying leases and provide cost-savings through energy efficient equipment, providing safer, faster revenue generation.

  • Potash Mining: Will use water reverse osmosis to increase energy efficiency.

  • Concentrate Drying: Replaces inefficient fossil fuels systems by using gas turbines to dry copper.

  • Mine Electrification: Using RailConnect 360 as a single point of contact, will allow for more energy efficient equipment, as well as increased cost and time savings.

  • Tailings to Energy:  Will test producing energy through tailings waste.

Solutions

We provide complete water and process treatment solutions to the mining industry, using advanced membrane technologies, chemical treatment programs and engineering and design services.
