Customer success story: Roima Intelligence empowers Boliden’s sustainable mining future
Boliden AB, a Swedish multinational metals, mining, and smelting company committed to environmental responsibility and operational excellence, is a leader in the mining industry. Partnering closely with Roima, an endorsed partner of AVEVA, Boliden has embarked on a transformative journey toward a sustainable and data-driven future.
Roima Intelligence is a crucial collaborator in our mining operations. Their expertise in implementing AVEVA PI has significantly optimized our processes, showcasing the impact of strategic partnerships in achieving operational excellence.
Since the early days of the Kevitsa mine in June 2010, we have been a trusted ally, offering innovative solutions to drive efficiency and sustainability. With Boliden’s acquisition of the mine in 2016, our collaboration seamlessly transitioned, and we continued to provide valuable support across Boliden’s operations in Sweden, Finland, and Ireland. This enduring partnership underscores the integration of technology and industry expertise, demonstrating our commitment to delivering exceptional solutions from the mine’s inception through its evolution under Boliden’s ownership.
Data for everyone
In 2018, AVEVA PI was seamlessly integrated with the process control system for comprehensive data collection. Our expertise was pivotal in configuring, installing, and providing user training, setting the stage for a future-focused roadmap.
A standout achievement was the migration of historical data to AVEVA PI, providing Boliden unprecedented control over its data and ushering in a new era of data-driven decision-making. We seamlessly integrated laboratory and analyzer data, improved tracking processes, and achieved a key milestone by integrating Boliden’s mass balancing tool, reducing manual labor, and enhancing data accuracy.
Our solutions extended beyond process metallurgy, reaching maintenance and beyond. Integrating AVEVA PI with the Maximo maintenance management system enabled automated decisions driven by real-time streaming data, resulting in substantial cost savings on maintenance and a more sustainable operation.
Modern data infrastructure facilitated effortless access to critical data, expanding the user base and democratizing data accessibility throughout Boliden. Today, Boliden is at the forefront of sustainable data-driven mining practices.
Beyond technical expertise
While our technical prowess forms the backbone of the partnership, our non-technical expertise is equally impactful. We go beyond guiding and advising on data presentation, visualization, and structure; we inspire and make the vast potential of AVEVA’s product portfolio visible. This transformative guidance transcends technology, transforming processes and empowering teams.
Our holistic approach is central to the partnership, managing systems, and ushering in continuous improvements. Beyond technology, we provide comprehensive support in project management, application management, vigilant monitoring, and incident management. This integrated approach ensures seamless integration and operational efficiency, maximizing the potential of systems and Boliden’s operations.
