Maptek and VUMA, a subsidiary of Bluhm Burton Engineering Pty Ltd., have executed a memorandum of understanding to facilitate collaboration and cooperation around mine ventilation solutions and mine design.

The main focus will be on enabling detailed data transfer between Maptek Vulcan mine planning software and VUMA ventilation simulation software.

VUMA is an impressive software suite. Integrating VUMA with Vulcan offers huge benefits to mine planning departments,’ commented Maptek Africa General Manager, Nick Venter.

‘It will allow mine survey and design data to be used in ventilation and cooling analysis, without replication of data, and ensures accurate, current representations of the mine surface can be applied to ventilation planning.’

‘Maptek is committed to delivering the best technical capabilities to our customers. Collaboration with leading practitioners in specialised fields helps improve operational value and productivity,’ Venter concluded.

‘This unique interface enhances the holistic approach required for modern mine planning and design, particularly the intensifying demand for fast, accurate and reliable answers,’ commented VUMA software specialist, Frank von Glehn.
