Conuma Coal Makes Large Investment to Further Increase Employee Safety

Press Releases

Conuma partners with Hexagon Mining to implement safety solutions designed to protect workers and equipment

TUMBLER RIDGE, BRITISH COLUMBIA, February 14, 2019 – Conuma Coal Resources (Conuma) is pleased to announce a multi-year investment in safety technology solutions offered by Hexagon Mining.  The three-year contract will cover Conuma’s coal mines near Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd in Northeast British Columbia, Canada.

Conuma is a Canadian metallurgical coal producer employing more than 850 employees at three surface mining operations and associated facilities. The deal will enhance protection of employees and 180-plus pieces of equipment through the implementation of Hexagon’s MineProtect Collision Avoidance and Fatigue Monitor Systems.

Used in more than 30,000 vehicles and in more than 60 mines worldwide, HxGN MineProtect Collision Avoidance System (CAS) will give Conuma Coal vehicle operators 360-degree proximity detection -- at any speed and in all conditions -- via unobtrusive cabin display units. It is fully integrated with the HxGN MineProtect Fatigue Pro, which employs proven computer vision technology to monitor operator fatigue levels while driving.

Further integration with HxGN MineProtect Tracking Radar will help characterize a potential threat’s position and motion, providing drivers and operators the information needed to prevent incidents. Conuma will use HxGN MineEnterprise Platform, a web-based reporting and analytics platform, to monitor and control critical risk events by connecting a multitude of data sources via live dashboards, visualizing all aspects of CAS.

Conuma President Mark Bartkoski said: “We are extremely excited to be partnering with Hexagon to implement an integrated safety solution that provides protection for our employees.  We are truly dedicated to providing our people with the tools to run a safe, productive and efficient operation that provides security for all of our partners.”

“We’re hugely impressed by Conuma’s commitment to safety,” echoed Hexagon Mining President, Josh Weiss. “This is a great example of how subscription licensing and an integrated portfolio package adds flexibility while allowing mines to maximize safety. We share Conuma’s core belief that protecting people and equipment is the smartest investment a mine can make.”
