In today’s marketplace, establishing the economic viability of a project is paramount to attract investment and ensure project success. The biggest question is whether the project is worth all the time and money. The way to find out is through consulting and feasibility studies.
Conducting a feasibility study can be tricky, as it amalgamates assessment of both technical and commercial viability. The overall attainability of the project goals needs to consider integration of innovative technologies and relevant business models. Many clients are puzzled over the need for rethinking the entire plan.
Our clients need answers to all possible “what ifs” that will enable step-change growth. To make a project successful, clients need to increase NPV and IRR on their investments.
‘What ifs’ that we hear a lot:
“What if we designed our operation with an electric fleet?”
“What if we could drill laparoscopically and extract only the mineral deposit?”
“What if’ we could track real time fleet data to reduce overall operating costs?”
We have the solutions to these and other ‘what if’ scenarios. Consulting and feasibility studies are how we can help you decide whether they make good sense for your operation.
Energy and Process: We know you care for your workers’ health and safety. We are aware of your conscious efforts directed towards reduction of GHG emissions and noise pollution. Working with our clients all these years has also made us conscious of the fact that they are constantly worried about the soaring ventilation costs incurred in an underground mining environment as well as spiraling operational cost and maintenance cost.
Thanks to recent advances in battery technology, battery-propelled equipment is now a plausible alternative to diesel-powered equipment. Leveraging our expertise in electric powertrains, we conduct detailed feasibility studies with the intent of increasing your project’s efficiency and streamlining your entire process. For instance, the benefits of using an electric truck in place of a diesel truck are becoming more well-known in the mining industry. Larger benefits are what you will find if the whole mine is considered as a system from the initial design concept.
Fleet Management: We match all assumptions with real-world data acquired through our telematics system to do predictive analytics on your fleet. The data supports budgetary decisions by accurately forecasting the overall return on investment. After conducting hundreds of similar assessments on heavy industrial/mobile equipment, we know how to find hidden savings in full-fleet deployment.
Productivity: We think beyond orthodox methods that limit your equipment’s performance. We insist on the integration of innovation technologies. We assist you in successfully identifying all the bottlenecks and finding solution by focusing on adapting transformative technologies. We begin by presenting a thesis and follow through with a proof of concept. Our aim is to “fail fast” with minimal spend to find step-change productivity improvements in a customer operation.
