Support Services for implementation of centralised maintenance planning
SMEC’s client, a world-leader in the resources industry, was in the process of transitioning its maintenance engineering functions to an off-site, centralised office in Santiago, Chile. Our client required specialist support to ensure a seamless conversion of crucial operational functions.

SMEC was appointed to provide planning support services, including asset management, work management and scheduling review, for the concentrator, cathodes, crushing and conveyor areas for two primary copper mining operations in Northern Chile. The three-year project aims to improve efficiencies, productivity and quality of life for on-site staff.


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted our services model to support a hybrid model of remote and on-site work. This approach, while new to the industry, has been successful and resulted in improved collaboration.
