Reliable and robust solutions that reduce risk and minimize downtime
From pit to port, GE offers a broad range of solutions that improve operational efficiencies and increase enterprise performance and safety. Our solutions include rugged communication networks, energy and network management software, protection and control for motors and transformers, and reliable power protection for continuous uptime.

GE's solutions for mine extractions include collecting and monitoring data in and around the pit, and protecting motors in critical assets. Providing visibility to data from crushers, seismic monitors, de-watering pump stations and other assets helps operators more efficiently perform day to day operations and maintenance activities. Surveillance at facility access gates and traffic control also helps increase worker safety.
Continuous communications for locomotives and transport vehicles provides valuable information such as location and status, and is especially important for unmanned vehicles. Our solutions enable high-speed, high-throughput data communication for vehicles as well as data acquisition for equipment and device status for preventive maintenance and reduced operating expenses.
The processing facility can be large and expansive with many critical areas. GE serves these areas with a communications infrastructure that supports video surveillance and data acquisition of controllers, meters, sensors and instrumentation. In addition, GE ensures secure, reliable power and protection for critical motors that help keep the processing facility running as efficiently as possible.
