Autonomous solutions specialist Remote Control Technology (RCT) has installed and commissioned its ControlMaster line-of-sight solution to two dozers at a Papua New Guinea gold mine.
The technology packages have been placed on Komatsu D275s at the gold mine of a major gold miner, and will enable the operator to clear landslip at the unnamed site.
Going forward, RCT said, the site’s machine operators will be able to stand at a safe distance and direct the dozers to operate beneath the pit’s highwall.
“Mine management are pleased that they can undertake necessary activities within the central pit while ensuring dozer operators are safe,” RCT Account Manager Wayne Carrington said, adding that the solution will be an integral part of safe operations.
RCT will provide training to machine operators and ongoing after-sales support as needed.
