Comprehensive optimisation capabilities
After years of effort and dedication, we have been involved in a number of successful projects worldwide that highlight our capabilities.
Feasibility study and beyond
In Las Cruces, Spain, some of our consultants were part of the feasibility study team of this mine. Its opening meant the restart of metallic mining operations in south-west Spain. We have also collaborated in the design of the structures for surface water management and a number of projects related to water treatment and mine extraction.
Integration of a previous operation in a new project
As part of our work in La Parrilla, Spain, part of the challenge was the conceptual design and conceptual engineering of the main infrastructures of the project with the integration of the old environmental passives to have a reduced permitting period. We also worked on the mine planning and design and JORC report.
Industrial building design
This cement plant at Antioquia, Colombia, will produce 1.35Mtpa of cement from 2019. Using BIM software, we are working for OHL in the design of the electrical and mechanical equipment buildings, and the design of ventilation for the 35,000m² limestone and additives storage facility.
50% increase of mine production
In Aguas teñidas, Spain, part of our team conducted as a leader the 50% production increase from 2.2Mtpa to 3.3Mtpa for the underground mine.
We have also conducted a study to optimise the water management system.
Optimisation and constant production rates
While working as mine manager in Aguablanca, Spain, our consultants were able to maintain the production rate as before the decrease in metal prices with a positive cash flow during this period of minor prices.
Goals in this operation were the introduction of drill-to-mill and the 30% decrease in mining costs while maintaining the high standards in health and safety, efficiency and mine equipment maintenance.
