Keep up with demands and remain profitable

Mining companies are held to higher standards than ever before. Making meaningful changes that reduce your environmental impact while keeping up with demand and remaining profitable can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. For a limited time, access a library of valuable mining reports and resources intended to inspire and help you get started.


Balance benefits to the planet, people, and profit

Taking steps towards ESG compliance will enhance community and regulatory relationships and help improve profitability. According to a 2021 PwC report, firms with superior environmental, social, and governance (ESG) ratings have a distinct competitive advantage. Reliably meeting ESG requirements starts by making intentional operational decisions that reduce energy consumption. From the initial feasibility study to the detailed design, execution, and operation stages, Danfoss Drives application and engineering experts are with you for the long haul. Installed drives are backed by our local service and support teams of dedicated drive specialists with proven mine site application and installation experience.

  • Meet strict energy efficiency requirements using drives designed for rugged environments
  • Achieve sustainability goals related to water management, waste reduction, and decarbonization
  • Achieve high output with profitable margins

Case story

See Danfoss Drives in action

Faced with the challenge of pumping stagnant water from depths of more than 400 meters, the Cerro Los Gatos mine opted for medium-voltage variable speed pump control using the VACON® 1000 drive from Danfoss. Drives were delivered and installed in the record time of 14 weeks from factory acceptance test.
