What is SmartEXECTM?

If you’ve not heard about or seen in action already, SmartEXECTM is Howden’s innovative suite of products engineered for managing ventilation in underground mines. In many cases, SmartEXECTM has proven to reduce a mines ventilation energy costs over 50%! The system was developed in Canada by Howden Simsmart and has been successfully implemented at various mines globally with sustained results over the past 10+ years. We are now giving professionals around the world the chance to explore what SmartEXECTM can do for their mines and reap the benefits it has to offer.

Our true Ventilation on Demand solution incorporates SmartEXECTM products specific to a mine’s requirements providing for a truly comprehensive system. Ventilation monitoring stations, asset tracking, variable speed fans, redundant communication systems and more, are all part of the SmartEXECTM solution to fit any mine, at any level of development. The SmartEXECTM pre-programmed logic and advanced controls ensures optimal performance of the entire system. Effortlessly juggling every component throughout the mine, maximizing fan efficiency and energy savings…all without the need of automation specialists.


Why do I need SmartEXECTM?


The benefits are many…increased health & safety, enormous energy savings, and production gains just to name a few. Phase 1 of implementing a SmartEXECTM VOD system is an assessment of your current system and mine details. From there, our engineers provide an extensive report outlining what is required, what it will cost, what you will save and how long it will take to return on your investment.

To help you get the system in place, we offer a number of flexible VAAS (Ventilation As A Service) payment plans to suit your mine’s requirements and budget. Our three and five year lease to own plans aim to make sure that every year, your expenditures towards the system are less than the value of energy saved.
