Worley picks up mining automation specialist

Minera is a global technical solutions provider to the mining, mineral and metals industry.

The company's mining, geological and technical consultants work with mine owners to automate and decarbonise by determining the best-fit technology solutions and strategies for their assets.

Worley said the addition of Minera to its existing technology and expert solutions team would strengthen the company's role in the energy transition and bring greater depth to the roadmaps needed to achieve sustainable mining solutions.

"The world needs more mining. But performance and production improvements are required as the energy transition and ESG pressure calls for sustainable materials delivered at pace," Worley global sector lead, resources Nick Bell said.

"To meet these demands, the industry needs the right partner to identify and adopt new and emerging technologies, often within an operating environment. The acquisition of Minera means we can do just that for our customers all over the world."

The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"Automation will remain a puzzle unless miners develop horizons that plan the practical application across their assets," Minera director Martin Boulton said.

"With the introduction of Minera, Worley can create autonomous business plans to help our customers define their target technology landscape, along with the delivery capabilities to achieve this operational state.

"We will also continue development of our autonomous skills training to grow industry capability and ensure solutions are implemented safely and on time."
