The actual cost of the order will depend on the plant’s output, with the maintenance system serving to enhance the availability and reliability of the mine.

The German company’s customer services division will offer services, personnel and equipment at the mine, where gold, silver, lead and zinc have been extracted since 2006.

Located in the Mexican state of Zacatecas, the mine has been under the service and maintenance of Siemens, where the company supplied drive systems.

The company will now carry out around-the-clock operation and maintenance of the InPit crushing and conveying system using computer-aided maintenance at Minera Peñasquito.
