Mining & Resources

Mining & Resources assets have to withstand some of the harshest conditions, doing the toughest jobs, on a scale unprecedented in any other industry.

Mining & Resources

Control. Automate. Optimise.

The assets owned and managed by Mining & Resources companies  are not only some of the most expensive, but  they have to work in the harshest environments, moving some of the hardest material on the planet,  24/7 and  meeting unrelenting production levels.

The infrastructure from the rock face to the port relies on a continual output.  If any one asset in that system breaks down, the whole system can stop.  One conveyer belt, one train or one large excavator to fail and you have potentially  hours of downtime equating to millions of dollars in lost revenue, plus potential liquidated damages for failing to deliver to your contacted production levels.  Failing assets can cause a domino effect on downstream businesses from your loss of production.

Condition monitoring, preventative maintenance and effective scheduling of asset operation to manage any shut down times are essential to any primary resources operation.  The right asset management system manages the huge complexities of assets within the Resources & Mining infrastructures while at the same time automating the processes to ensure that assets are maintained, kept safe and have optimised lifecycles.

When it comes to asset management systems – you need the best.   Tolerro specialise in high availability enterprise asset management systems, workforce mobility solutions and the consulting that makes implementation and enhancement a well-managed success.  Tolerro is the provider of choice for some of the largest mining and resource companies in Australia and internationally.
