MacLean Engineering Innovation Report – July 2018


Sometimes a turning point can only be seen clearly in hindsight.

Such is the case for the mine of the future as we begin 2018, coming out of a 2017 where major mining companies continued to demonstrate capital spending austerity and focus on debt reduction. All the while, there were growing signals that digitalization, electrification and automation were all gaining momentum, even though actual examples of minesite implementations could as of yet, still be counted on one hand.

For MacLean, the past year was one where for the first time we had a fleet of battery electric vehicles working underground, allowing us the ability validate our performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) models with real-world data, while at the same time continuing to build out our EV offer across the product lines.rate capital spending austerity and focus on debt reduction.
