Project name: European Mining in the Greenand Digital Era


Contest: “A digitised, resource-efficient and resilient industry 2022” (HORIZON-CL4-2022-RESILIENCE-01) within the framework of the Horizon Europe program


Purpose of the project: MASTERMINE creates the structure of technology and methodology, which are aimed at effecting change at three different levels: Culture, Strategy and Tactics. The engagement of Polish partners of the project (JSW S.A. and GIG) will focus on developing a smart network supporting the optimum methane drainage of hard coal mines. As part of the work, the network concept will be developed, which will include both hardware needs as well as the necessary software. The project should complete with modernization of the existing methane drainage network in order to enable control from the surface or autonomic operation based on data from a properly set up system of sensors.
