Our vision: Efficient, safe, and sustainable mining as an enabler for a global green transition


Project reached finish line

Today, we have reached the project’s finish line! 🏁 It has been an amazing three years filled with numerous achievements and collaborations.

A big thank you to all participants and to the entire Nexgen SIMS community that has been following us on social media.

🔉Crank up the #volume and watch our final film🎬. Feel proud of what we have achieved together 💚🌲.

Autonomous Material Handling at the Face

Time for some “In-depth” footage of Automatous Material Handling at the face at Agnico Eagle Mines Limited Eagle Kittilä mine, Finland. This was made possible from great collaboration within the consortium and the amazing people involved in it. Thank you all!

Implementing Private 5G underground

A solid solution for connectivity is key for any modern mines and for the Nexgen SIMS project! In this short film we followed Ericsson, Anders Nordenson and the team to Agnico Eagle Mines Limited in Kittilä, Finland. Let us enjoy a view behind the scenes of a 5G installment. In the hashtag#future everything will be connected and smart

Exploitation Strategies

Exploitation is closely linked to increasing the potential of project results being adopted in the future. This is done by establishing go-to-market strategies for innovations developed throughout the project and exploitation strategies for educational modules.

Project Management

NEXGEN SIMS is run by an international consortium of world-leading mining companies, equipment and system manufacturers and universities. The project is divided into a number of work packages, which in turn consist of several tasks – each led by a qualified work package or task leader.

Pilots and Demonstrations

The NEXGEN SIMS project has a focus on the scale-up of promising technologies and demonstrating their potential in real mining environments.
