Continued Success in Chile

SMEC is reviewing maintenance strategies for a major Chilean mining group at one of its copper mines in the northern region of the country.

SMEC is reviewing maintenance strategies for a major Chilean mining group at one of its copper mines in the northern region of the country.

SMEC’s Asset Management team will analyse and update all maintenance processes associated with the crushing area at the mine, located 1,500 metres above sea level. The area will include all primary, secondary and tertiary equipment, crushers, conveyors, vibrating screens and other major equipment.

During the four-month contract, SMEC will apply selected methodology components created for a previous maintenance strategy optimisation project, which identified improvements to achieve estimated savings of more than two hundred million dollars over several years for another mining operator.

The components will consist of core analysis methodology, project management and benchmarking to ensure standards and business drivers deliver maximum cost reduction and increased productivity.

This award sees SMEC currently assisting at three of the four mine sites for this key client.
