Autonomous Drilling

Since 2017, Treo has been appointed to manage the autonomous drilling project of a Tier 1 open cast mine in South Africa. The project has entailed engagement with two autonomous drilling solution vendors to retrofit the drill rig fleet of the operation with the required control systems, mechanical and electrical architecture for full tele-remote autonomous drilling deployment.


Key project activities have included the development of project schedules for drill rig rebuilds and auto- drill kit installations, project management, engagement with all stakeholders including mine personnel and the running of an operational readiness and training campaign to move drill rig operators from operating in the field to a remote operating facility kilometres away.
