Mining is a high-risk business—from stringent environmental regulations to on-the-ground conditions. We help you improve the quality, safety, and cost of your mining project.



Mining is among the world’s highest-risk businesses: projects are often operated in remote, and sometimes, conflict-afflicted areas. The supply chain—which is both global and highly local—is complex. Environmental regulations are becoming more stringent. And works are often carried out under risky conditions in which safety can be compromised. As a mine operator, you need to ensure the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of your mining project. At the same time, you want to ensure your assets’ future reliability and comply with regulations. 


We provide support throughout your mining project’s lifecycle—from exploration and procurement, to construction and operation—with services that cover products, assets, facilities, and processes.
