KWK Knurów is part of a group of mines owned by Kompania Weglowa in Poland. Kompania Weglowa comprises fifteen individual mines and is the biggest coal mining operation in the European Union. It is located in Silesia in the south of Poland. The mine employs 60,000 people, and produces 40,000 tonnes of coal annually.
The mine management wanted a cost effective method of displaying important health and safety information to both miners and head office staff. Kompania Weglowa selected ONELAN digital signage as it represented the most suitable solution for their requirements.
They have ten ONELAN Net-top-box (NTB) 510 subscriber units and ten ONELAN NTB 510 publisher units that are used for Health and safety training and company presentations for coal mine workers.
All screens are located in the main staff training area; it is too dusty underground for the screens to operate.
Content is managed by Department of Health and Safety and not by the mine itself.
The ONELAN NTBs drive 46” and 50” screens. There are also two video walls (one is 3x3 and the other 2x3).
