Kiepe Electric GmbH, renowned for its high-quality and reliable safety and monitoring devices in conveyor technology, is making strides in the mining sector with its expertise in electrification. The circular Kiepe logo has long been synonymous with excellence in conveyor technology, known particularly for devices like emergency pull-rope switches. However, Kiepe Electric’s capabilities extend far beyond these applications.

As a leader in engineering, production, and integration of electrical systems, Kiepe Electric has been a trusted partner for transportation companies, fleet operators, and vehicle manufacturers worldwide. From San Francisco to Cologne, major cities rely on Kiepe’s environmentally friendly electric equipment for streetcars, subways, regional trains, and buses, including battery, trolley, and in-motion charging (IMC) buses.

For the first time, Kiepe Electric will present its latest advancements in bus and rail technology at the 20th “Belt Conveyors and their Elements” conference on March 14th. The presentation, titled “Electrification, Hybridization, and Decarbonization of Rail and Commercial Vehicles – Suggestions for Use in Mining?”, will explore the application of these technologies in the mining industry.

Ulrich Lauel, Head of Sales Railway Systems, will lead the presentation, offering insights into e-mobile solutions for rail vehicles and buses. These innovations are part of Kiepe Electric’s efforts to promote safe and sustainable transport concepts, which may also benefit conveyor technology and connected vehicle fleets in mining.

The presentation will take place at the Haus der Technik (HDT) in Essen, providing attendees with an opportunity to discover how Kiepe Electric’s cutting-edge solutions can create synergies for decarbonization projects in mining operations. This event promises to be a pivotal moment in exploring the intersection of electrification and mining, paving the way for a more sustainable future in the industry.
