Beyond Limits is contracted to build advanced AI technology to power operations of the world’s first cognitive power plant. The initial order by Xcell Security House and Finance S.A (Xcell), the Swiss-based global financial and minerals development company, will break new ground for power plant construction and operations, guided by Beyond Limits Cognitive AI technology for Power Generation.
This first cognitive power plant will be installed as part of a large-scale infrastructure program to drive core industrial capacity and power economic development in West Africa. With technology originated for NASA space missions, Beyond Limits is a pioneer in advanced cognitive AI solutions for heavy industry.
Mining is a tough business. Companies operating mines, quarries, or oil and gas wells invest heavily in equipment permits and leases, while taking on exploration and production risks. The extraction of minerals such as coal and ores; liquids such as crude petroleum; and gases like natural gas require large-scale industrial operations with complex, interconnected systems. Mining operations also may include quarrying, well operations, or milling (crushing, screening, washing, flotation, etc.), and other processes normally located and operating on-site.
Managing these systems day in and day out is a challenge. Machine failures can interrupt entire production lines. Shift changes complicate matters, with new crews of engineers and operators with varying degrees of experience. Fluctuations in market prices put additional economic pressure on mining companies to hold the line on operational efficiency.
To assist companies to manage mining operations, Beyond Limits develops Cognitive AI systems designed to monitor and predict maintenance for heavy equipment and infrastructure, from the pit to the plant. Unlike I0T systems that might monitor a single device or piece of equipment, Beyond Limits Cognitive AI systems have wide-ranging situational awareness. Trained to think like engineers, they comprehend how the entire system works. So, a problem detected at one point of failure can be traced back to its source or analyzed to predict problems further downstream.
Beyond Limits Cognitive AI technology for Mining can help operators manage mines and ore processing facilities with variable feedstock quality, identifying global issues and local remedies. The technology monitors inconsistencies between plan and operations over time and highlights areas for people to investigate for intervention.
