Digitalizing the Coal Sector: Challenges and Opportunities
3 October 2019

The 4th Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) is opening up new opportunities for coal companies to increase their competitiveness. The introduction of digital technologies makes it possible to fully automate the majority of processes, grow labour productivity, increase the sector’s competitiveness, and reduce workplace accidents and injuries. At the same time, the sector must also develop its own technologies and approaches to cybersecurity and data exchange. How far advanced are coal companies in terms of achieving digital transformation in the industry today, and how can the coal sector reposition itself towards digital interaction with other industries? What obstacles and threats lie on the path towards digital transformation in the coal sector? What are the requirements of coal companies in terms of platform solutions with varying functionality and levels of integration for the creation of a single informational and technological space as part of Russia’s ‘digital energy’ and ‘digital economy’? What digital solutions and new digital models have already been introduced into administrative processes at leading coal companies? What new innovations are set for implementation in the near future?
