Siemens helps Chinese coal mines facilitate cloud-based digitalization

December 6, 2018 - To increase outputs while reducing shutdown times, YanZhou Coal Mine Co. Ltd. is for the first time establishing a cloud concept for mine hoist, enabling it to centrally monitor production, analyze, and respond to insights from real-time data. Drawing on Siemens expertise in the mining industry and Industry 4.0, the solution will be based on the advanced architecture and performance of Siemens WinCC Open Architecture. As part of the contract, Siemens will also provide inter process communication (IPC), accessories, plus software engineering and site commissioning services.

YanZhou Coal Mine Co. Ltd. is establishing a cloud concept for mine hoist. The project is set to begin in 2019, initially drawing data from four mine hoist systems at the customer’s DongTan Coal Mine, located in the central eastern portion of YanZhou coalfield. To benefit from enterprise-wide insights, YanZhou Coal Mine Co. Ltd. intends later to extend the concept to cover up to 20 mine hoists located hundreds of miles apart from each other at this and its other five coal mines. For 24/7 transparency, the cloud platform can be accessed by users on local PCs in the enterprise network, or using remote PC or smart phone/tablets via the Internet.

This enables engineers and managers to monitor machine status, trace fault by historical trend, while managing service routines and the knowledge library – any time, any where.

YanZhou Coal Mine Co. Ltd. is headquartered in Zoucheng, Jining, Shandong in eastern mainland China. The company is principally engaged in underground coal mining, preparation and processing, sales, and railway transportation of coal.
