This world leader in ore refining was facing a critical decision regarding the future of a profitable refinery as assets approached end-of-life. Aurecon used its asset performance expertise, together with digital asset data, to design a sophisticated sustaining capital programme to extend the facility’s assets and prioritise the timing of capital investments to free up significant investment cash flow.
How we did it
Our team developed a transformation roadmap and asset management plans, including lifecycle forecasts and end-of-life trigger points, for the site’s critical assets. We are also providing ongoing advice to evolve business processes and behaviours to drive the cultural and organisational transformation required to successfully execute the strategy.
What we delivered
- A data-driven methodology to analyse and rationalise a multi-million dollar capital investment programme and reprioritise around 30 per cent of the work to create greater value and free up cashflow
- A strong governance structure to make informed, realistic and confident capital investment decisions that align with corporate strategy
- Effective prioritisation and implementation of the right projects, and systems, to support operational efficiency, health, safety and environmental compliance
- Early-phase works that will reduce the carbon footprint of the facility
