Did you know ...Bureau Veritas helps the world’s biggest mines run smoothly and safely ?

27/03/07

Mining is big business. For a mine to run effectively, thousands of machines and pieces of equipment must be kept working efficiently and safely at all times. Today, some of the world’s biggest mining companies are asking Bureau Veritas to help.

 

Extensive work
In many countries, Bureau Veritas experts will be testing and inspecting pieces of equipment and machinery, including pipes, valves, and pressure vessels. This is to make sure they comply with local safety standards and environmental regulations. It is also to check that they work reliably and with minimum risk as the sites need to run efficiently and at the lowest cost. And of course, one of the goal is to keep the hundreds of people working on site safe from injury.

Dedicated teams, new methods
In Australia for instance, an office has been contracted to provide a team of 6 inspection and testing experts working in two week shifts. In addition to the team on site, an engineer will support this activity by introducing new computer software to manage the integrity of piping systems on the site. Over the coming 12 months, it is planned to provide further support to the client through the introduction of risk based assessment processes on site. By predicting the likelihood of equipment failure, and its consequences, Bureau Veritas can optimise the frequency and extent of its inspections, saving the client money while managing plant safety.

 

In Chile, ten of its engineers/mining technicians are full-time dedicated to mining project. They will be overseeing companies’ selected engineering and construction contractors, checking that each subcontractor’s work complies with the right standards.

Proven credentials
Says Richard Jensen, Commercial Manager at Intico/Bureau Veritas in Australia: "We have a long history with this major nickel ore processing facility, going back to 1998 when the plant was built. We are the best placed to provide the service the client requires, including the introduction of our proven asset integrity management systems. The potential to grow this business through supplying new software and asset management systems makes this an exciting development for Intico/Bureau Veritas. And leveraging the strength and breadth of the Bureau Veritas network will definitely help."

 

Says Juliano Cardoso, Country Chief Executive at Bureau Veritas Chile: "We have already been working for the most important mining companies here in Chile, delivering these type of services, and have established very strong relationships with them. Proof that Bureau Veritas has some of the best credentials in the business when it comes to services for the mining industry."
