Improve your equipment reliability and availability.
Equipment reliability and availability, particularly at the bottleneck, is a key driver of business value within the mining and mineral processing sector. Much of the work that we have done in the mining and mineral processing sector is aimed at achieving this goal.
Holistic asset management improvement.
Some of our mining clients are also interested in more holistic asset management improvement, and we have performed some asset management gap assessments within the mining and mineral processing sector. We also deliver extensive training in maintenance and reliability improvement to the mining and mineral processing sector – mostly through customised in-house training that has been developed specifically for their needs.
We have particularly strong experience within the mining and mineral processing sector, having performed work for almost all of the major blue-chip mining companies in Australia, and many outside Australia as well. In addition, we have conducted a large number of assignments for smaller mining and mineral processing organisations.
