SAFER, GREENER AND MORE EFFICIENT MINING

by

30 May 2018

At TOP International Holding, we have our corporate social responsibility in place to protect our environment and ensure that our mining practices are safe, green and most importantly, efficient. In January this year, our CEO Dato’ Victor Tan steered our company towards green mining by introducing the employment of two new Wirtgen 2500SM surface miners for mining in Guinea

TOP International Holding had a meeting with the Wirtgen Group in Germany where our CEO Dato’Victor Tan, Vice President Mr Tan Jenn Wei and Head of China representative Mr Sun Jian visited the Wirtgen headquarters and had an in-depth discussion with Mr Ulrich Reichert (CEO of Wirtgen (China) Machinery Co., Ltd.), Dr.-Ing. Erik Zimmermann (Product Manager, Mining), Mr Tony Cai (Manager, National Account & Overseas Business) and Mr Sven Krumscheid (Head of Customer Support) on the overall market situation of bauxite, business operations as well as mining plans and equipment. The TOP management team also visited the Wirtgen Production Plant and inspected Wirtgen machinery.

By using Wirtgen surface miners, TOP is prioritizing safe mining over conventional mining which requires the method of blasting. Wirtgen surface miners do not drill or blast the mine, making the work process safer for TOP employees. Additionally, Wirtgen surface miners allow for better control over the particle size mined which is beneficial to the overall logistics chain of the mining process and also provides added convenience for our customers to utilize the bauxite.

TOP collaborated with Wirtgen as our supplier as part of our corporate strategy to move into more innovative, smart and efficient mining practices and minimize the conventional mining method of drilling and blasting which is not as safe, green or effective. Wirtgen is a globally recognised leader in mining technology and the manufacturing of mining machines and TOP’s new Wirtgen 2500SM surface miners provide our miners with three tried-and-tested performance classes to choose from as well as the possibility of customizing the mining operations down to very specified details and project requirements. This new machinery allows TOP to utilize high-end technology in the cutting, crushing and loading of the minerals mined into one single step of operation – maximizing efficiency of the mining process while minimizing any effect to the environment. In addition, TOP’s new and powerful Wirtgen surface mining machinery operates without any detonations at lower dust emission levels, significantly lowering labour and operation costs at the same time. Their individually height-adjustable and steerable crawler units enable optimum manoeuvrability and their fully-glazed operator's cabin provides miners with both heating and air-conditioning, soundproofing and anti-vibration mounting to ensure non-tiring and productive machine operation

TOP is proud of our ability, openness and willingness to quickly adapt to newer greener mining practices and focuses on safe and environmentally friendly mining machinery as our corporate social responsibility. We are positive this helps both the environment and us and we expect to see a more productive output this year that is sustainable, safe and much more optimized, with an estimated target of over 10 million tons of bauxite being mined annually.


更安全、更环保、更高效矿业开采

高顶国际控股有限公司履行社会责任——保护环境并确保采矿作业安全、环保、高效。2018年1月,高顶国际控股有限公司CEO拿督陈振权先生针对几内亚矿业开采,通过引进两台维特根2500SM型采矿机带领公司向环保型采矿模式发展。

高顶国际CEO拿督陈振权先生、副总裁陈振威先生,高顶驻中国代表孙健先生在德国拜访了维特根总部,并与Mr Ulrich Reichert (维特根(中国)机械有限公司CEO), Dr.-Ing. Erik Zimmermann (矿业设备产品业务经理), Mr Tony Cai (维特根中国全国大客户及海外业务经理) ,Mr Sven Krumscheid (客户支持业务经理)就铝土矿市场总体情况、公司业务运营以及以及后续生产计划,采矿机设备等相关问题进行了深入交流探讨。高顶国际一行随后对维特根生产工厂及机械设备进行了参观考察。

采用维特根采矿机,高顶国际优先选择安全的而非传统的采矿模式,传统采矿模式需要爆破。维特根采矿机采矿不需要穿孔或者爆破,对员工而言该采矿工作模式更加安全。另外,维特根采矿机生产可以更好的控制矿石粒度,便于采矿作业整个物流链操作,并满足铝土矿客户的需求。

作为公司战略的一部分,高顶国际与维特根共同合作,向更加创新型、智能、高效的采矿方式进一步发展,并减少传统穿孔爆破方式的采矿作业。维特根集团是一家全球化并在开采技术以及矿业机械设备制造领域具有领先优势。维特根2500SM型采矿机有三种经过实践检验的工作模式可供选择,并使采矿作业能够根据具体的细节要求以及项目需要来特别规划制定。该新型采矿机在切削、破碎以及矿石装车方面采用了高端技术,行程一体化作业——最大化生产效率并将对环境影响最小化。另外,高顶国际新引进的、强劲的维特根采矿机作业时不需要爆破,扬尘极少,同时也大幅度降低了人力和操作成本。独立高度可调以及可驾驶的行进单元使得该采矿机具备了极佳的操控性能,全玻璃驾驶室为操作手提供了冷暖空调、隔音以及抗振悬置以确保不易疲劳以及高效的设备操作运行。

高顶国际对于我们的能力、开放的态度以及迅速适应更新型、更环保的开采方式感到自豪,并作为我们公司的社会责任,我们将关注安全、环保型采矿机械,这对环境以及我们自身是很有帮助的。我们期望通过可持续的,安全的,以及更加优化的采矿生产,2018年铝土矿的总产量将会大幅提升并达到1000万吨以上。
