Caterpillar’s exclusive Power Demand Management System for 7495 Series Electric Rope Shovels allows the lowest cost per ton loading tool to efficiently operate in spite of electrical infrastructure challenges. This patented energy storage and power management technology reduces the number of generators required to run an electric rope shovel, giving mines the option of production without grid power. Additionally, this technology lowers the machine’s peak power requirement, resulting in more alternatives when mines plan for power. This innovative technology allows mines to achieve ultra class operating costs in spite of power challenges.
