VIST is a dynamically developing international company in the field of development and implementation of information technologies for mining and metallurgy.
Since 1994 the mining industry has become a key area for VIST, and in 1999 the company successfully brought to the market and to this day continues to develop its own mine fleet management system VG Karier. This is a hardware-software complex for control, management and optimization of processes at a mining enterprise, which allows reducing the cost of mining. The equipment is effectively used at enterprises not only in Russia, but also worldwide.
In 2019 VIST has successfully tested the robotic dump trucks BELAZ with a capacity of 130 tons, as well as robotic drilling rigs at the enterprises of the leading coal company in Russia. The robotic dump truck BELAZ was created and demonstrated within the framework of the Intellectual Career project together with partners - the companies - residents of the Skolkovo fund. The robotic dump truck operates on the basis of artificial intelligence technologies: the loader can independently build a 3D model of the rock mass for loading, determine the most effective order of action, correlate its movement with the position of the dump truck.
For its work on the implementation of technological solutions in the industry, the company won the international competition in the category Mining of the future in Barcelona at IOT World Congress in 2019. Throughout its activity the company's specialists, engineers and IT-specialists found new innovative solutions for industrial enterprises.
VIST started to expand and develop its presence in Russian regions in 2000. To date, cooperation and partnership relations have been established with the world's leading manufacturers of quarry equipment and mining and transport equipment. In addition, the company is a partner of many educational institutions, research centers and non-profit organizations to develop innovative technologies for the mining industry around the world.
For 32 years since its foundation, the company VIST has already implemented more than 80 projects around the world for enterprises that are mining gold, coal, phosphates, non-ferrous metals, iron ore and other solid minerals. The company offers digital solutions for open-pit and underground mining, gold mining, concentration plants and metallurgy, industrial safety, industrial railway transport.
Today the VIST company pays special attention to participation in programs to stimulate the Russian industry and is a member of the technological platform of solid minerals.
One of the important tasks of the company is not only to attract new customers, but also to maintain partnerships with existing ones - modernization of systems used by customers, technical support, as well as expanding the functionality and adding new modules to meet the changing needs of mining operations.
