We assist clients to develop clear objectives for their assets, understand their failure modes, then identify the activities and resources needed to manage these failure modes, and achieve their objectives.
In addition to our work with mobile assets, Bluefield provides asset and project management services to minerals processing clients.
We have experience across a variety of processing plants, including concentrators, ore handling, and prep plants, as well as load-out facilities and materials handling operations. Our specialists have expertise across numerous asset classes, including crushing and conveying, mills, screens, pumps and piping, flotation, and dewatering.
Alongside our work in Australia, Bluefield has significant international experience, including Africa (Zambia, South Africa), Latin America (Chile, Colombia, Panama), North America (Canada), Asia (Philippines, Japan, Laos), and Oceania (Papua New Guinea).
Bluefield’s services to minerals processing clients cover the entire asset life cycle, from the pre-feasibility phase through to end-of-life. We also provide training, coaching, mentoring, and other specialist services.
Our asset management services include Strategic Asset Management Planning, Asset Criticality Assessments, Spares Optimisation, Asset Management Planning, and Life Cycle Cost Modelling.
In fixed plant environments, we emphasize the critical importance of shutdown strategies and management, work management, and materials management practices in achieving your targets. Using our in-house models and toolkits, we can work with you to conduct process assessments and improvement projects.
Bluefield also concentrates on practical, sustainable improvements to reliability, productivity, cost, and safety. Our flagship “Bluefield Transformation” approach is designed to build a culture of proactive maintenance among fixed plant maintenance teams, positioning clients to take advantage of the latest improvements in maintenance systems, processes, and new technologies. We can also conduct failure investigations and defect elimination projects.
A particular challenge for minerals processing environments is asset integrity and statutory equipment compliance, especially for electrical and structural assets. Bluefield has conducted detailed electrical compliance and integrity audits for clients, allowing them to rectify critical safety and production-related defects.
In addition to our asset management services, Bluefield also has a strong project management capability. Our services range from study management and options analysis, through to project delivery, as well as operational readiness services, which includes CMMS and master data implementation.
