Mining & Metals is one of the world’s oldest industries provides an essential input into many other industries. As of 2019 the combined revenue of the top 40 global mining companies amounted to 692 billion U.S. dollars. The industry has a wide range of plant types from open-cut and underground mines, to fixed plants, smelters, and refineries. The mobile equipment used in the mining is of a scale not used in any other industry and sets unique requirements and challenges. The fixed equipment is unique in some ways and tends to see strong wear and tear.
What is not unique is the importance of generating value from capital-intensive assets and the need to drive high reliability, high availability, whilst optimising costs, and ensuring safety.
