    I keep failing to deliver on pics. Have stuck a reminder in my calendar.
    Yeh it's a baby alright. D8T Jap spec, just been imported and refreshed for a customer in Pelorus (spelling?). I have the list on my desk of to what they've ordered. There's info here. Hopefully they get a D11TCD.

    Surely you must take a lot of photos working there? Or is it not really part of your job James?

    ^-- That is mint. I just did my height safety/fall arrest course for servicing some gear we have on towers. Just ordered all the gear we need, can't wait to get out in the field and start using it.

    I take lots of pics but nothing with me in it, heh.

    I can deliver better than this, will update post in future. Just have to confirm that it's "kosher" - heh.

    My shoebox. HP Elitebook+24" LCD+Logitech 5500 Wireless Desktop. Lovely view to office light vehicle parking.




    This is one of the projects (And currently the coolest one) that I look after. We have a site wide wireless network consisting of 7 of these towers, and 2 mobile trailers. We're going to be expanding this in the near future.







    The towers are nothing hugely over exciting. Solar/Wind powered, massive bank of batteries, Cisco/Proxim wireless gear. If geeks are interested in specs/how we monitor then I'll elaborate. The really cool stuff is what it's actually there for.

    All of our plant (Trucks, Excavators, Bulldozers, Etc) has wireless and connects to this network. There are two types, standard GPS, couple of metre accuracy, or High Precision (HP) GPS, ~20mm accuracy. The trucks all get standard, the excavators/bulldozers get HP. The HP GPS relies on corrections information being sent across the wireless network every half second, which is it's core function.

    There are essentially three parts to the network, the truck operators, HP operators and the GPS dispatchers.

    Truck drivers get assigned to an HP operator, and the screen on their cab goes "They're here, take this route, it's the quickest" and away they go. The system records the basic stuff. Speed they're going, how many times they got loaded and where they dumped too. In the future when we get our new gear we're looking at going mental with this. You can do real time health diagnostics on trucks, things like, oh shit, the temp on the right bank turbo manifold is substantially hotter than the left bank, check out the right air filter, it might be clogged. Other immediate advantages are things like knowing real time fuel burn, monitor brake usage, tyre temp, all the sorts of things that if you put controls in place could literally end up saving millions of dollars in operational and maintenance costs.

    The HP operators will have the same sort of real time health monitoring working, but the real advantage for these guys is being able to cut/fill exactly to the mine design. The GPS dispatcher uploads the design to the operators screen of where they're going to be working. Then they get a display like the following showing them they need to be cutting/filling x metres. There are sensors on the booms of the diggers so the software knows exactly where the boom is compared to the design.


    ^-- Sitting at my desk VNC'd into EX1900 screen. I can't actually control the thing from my desk... yet :P

    The GPS dispatcher will in theory have a setup exactly like an air traffic controller. Screens fucking everywhere displaying all sorts of ridiculous stats. Health monitoring on all of the gear in real time, locations of all of the gear. Their job is to make sure certain hauls don't have too many trucks, wait times aren't too long, that all of the gear has the correct mining designs, that sort of stuff.

    VERY cool shit. Probably the thing I love most about my job is the integration with different technologies and you can't get more different than mixing all of this stuff up!

    This is a panoramic looking out to the left from the tower above. Click to open massive version.

    Paparoa Ranges up the back leading down to the Tasman Sea on the left. Rehabilitation down in front (This is what the whole place will look like eventually), main office far right, workshop to the left of that, new $130 Million Coal Handling and Processing Plant being built in the middle, main hard stand on the left.

    That's a really nice view you've got there Gecko. Some of you guys have some really interesting jobs.




    My smoko room, and shrine to Internet meme's and random funnies. Sometimes when I've had a really shitty day I just like to sort of stare at the wall and space out for 5 minutes.

    Re: Photos @ work/office

    I work for a large SoE that predominantly mines coal. You can probably figure it out So yeah, no "Quarry" in terms of major rock/ore, but we do have our own quarry on-site for Civil stuff.

    We don't have the biggest Mining plant in NZ afaik, I think there is bigger in the North Island. Our site is to diverse for massive gear, heaps of smaller pits rather than one large one. The biggest piece of plant we own are Hitachi EX1900s, they're just being commissioned at the moment. I've got some pics I took of those being built/moved around that I might put up later. The single largest piece of gear on site is owned by Doug Hood (Who I used to work for) and is a Komatsu PC2000, only 10 odd tone larger than the EX1900. Largest bulldozer is Komatsu 575 owned by Kaipara Ltd. Largest in the world. There are two of them on-site. One of them is remote controlled.

    ^-- That was taken on-site. No idea who put that up on YouTube, but it wasn't me, so I don't care linking it

    Not the "Office" but it's where I spend most of my time.



    And the range set up for a Taylormade Demo day.



    And when it rains the practice green turns into this! Challenging little par 3 into the wind! I have a vid of this somewhere too.

    OMFG, IT'S A COMPUTER!!



    For some reason, a lot of people seem to genuinely expect architects' offices to be full of skinny people in black skivvies and frameless glasses hunched over drafting boards*. Go figure.




    * We do actually have one in the office. It's used to store old files.
