Analyses of diesel use for mine haul and transport operations - several companies

Date

This case study demonstrates analyses of diesel use in trucks by trending energy data over time, development of models and simulations, use of indicators, and benchmarking, including theoretical benchmarking. It also shows how an Energy Mass Balance (EMB) has been applied to rail operations and provides examples of comprehensive analyses of diesel use in mining operations used by Fortescue Metals Group Ltd, Downer EDI Mining Pty Ltd and Leighton Contractors Pty Limited. It was developed through these companies' participation in the Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) program.
