Worley has acquired Minera Mining Technologies, a global technical solutions provider to the mining, mineral and metals industry.
Headquartered in Western Australia, Minera’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. The pairing provides enhanced front-end solutions covering automation, fleet decarbonisation/electrification, and operational benefits realisation.
Adding Minera to Worley’s existing Technology and Expert Solutions team will 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,” said Nick Bell, Global Sector Lead, Resources at Worley. “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.”
“Automation will remain a puzzle unless miners develop horizons that plan the practical application across their assets,” said Martin Boulton, Director of Minera. “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.”
The acquisition of Minera aligns with Worley’s purpose of delivering a more sustainable world, and its aspiration to achieve 75% of its revenue from sustainability-related business within five years.
