Technology safeguards miners in PNG


World-leading autonomous solutions specialist RCT has completed a project to commission its technology on dozers at a major gold mining operation in Papua New Guinea.

RCT has installed and commissioned its market-leading ControlMaster® Line-of-Sight solution onto two Komatsu D275 dozers at the client’s gold mine.

The technology packages will enable the mine operator to clear landslip in the mine’s central pit.

Going forward the site’s machine operators can stand at a safe distance and direct the dozers to operate beneath the pit’s highwall.

RCT Account Manager Wayne Carrington said the solution is an integral part of safe mine operations.

“Mine management are pleased that they can undertake necessary activities within the central pit while ensuring dozer operators are safe,” he said.

RCT will provide training to machine operators and ongoing after sales support as required.
