WE PILOT AND VALIDATE TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE MINING INDUSTRY
We are the National Center of Piloting of Technologies for the Mining, public-private alliance, with the support of Corfo. Our partners are the University of Chile, the University of Antofagasta; Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Federico Santa María University and Minnovex (association of companies for innovation, export of products, supplies and knowledge-intensive services).
Our focus is that technology-based mining and mining suppliers, have pilot testing and validation capabilities on an industrial scale. We apply mining recognized standards, through robust models of design and selection of tests, measurement methodologies and execution protocols. For this we have experts, access to test sites and assessment during technological scaling.
Our business model includes working with co-executors, which are companies that have shown us the interest of being part of our project and their intention is to cooperate in the construction and availability of physical spaces and infrastructure to perform tests on an industrial scale.
