Optimizing Process-plant Assets
Weir Minerals, the Australia-based process equipment business of the Weir Group, pointed out that with declining ore grade and low commodity prices, the mining industry has had to adapt to stay competitive. As merger and acquisitions opportunities and greenfield projects diminish, there is a strong focus on modifying and optimizing existing mine sites and processes to achieve greater operational efficiency.
Mining companies are under intense pressure to increase production through the optimization of their current plants and resources. In order to achieve this, it is important they preserve and extend their assets.
