• Customizing Proven Solution Packages Will Increase Efficiency of Mining Operations, Reduce Lead Time, Lessen Environmental Effects and Enable Remote Operations;
• Fast-Track Deployments Address Mining Industry’s Need to Increase Output and Productivity as Mineral Demand Continues to Surpass Capacity.

GE Energy and Foster Wheeler Chile, a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler AG, a global engineering, procurement and construction company with projects throughout the world, are working together to help companies in the mining industry in South America address these challenges. The two companies today announced a portfolio of mining infrastructure solutions that can deliver energy, processing systems, water management and waste management from their combined mining expertise, technologies, engineering and onsite services.

“With labor shortages, capital challenges, lower mineral ore grades and complex infrastructures, mining companies have a number of challenges to overcome,” said Jose Luis Fernandez, general manager, Foster Wheeler Chile S. A. “Our ‘customized-modular’ solutions provide more capability and can cut manpower requirements. We’re giving the mining industry a reliable path to meet its growth potential.”

GE Energy and Foster Wheeler Chile S. A. together are solving productivity and processing problems, including crushing, grinding, transportation, water availability and environmentally sound waste management, and are harnessing the energy to power it all. Potential solutions include water desalination to help increase copper output in Chile and cogeneration power facilities to deliver electricity and heat to remote Chilean mines. These solutions can be replicated in other locations—speeding the development of new mine output and offering productivity improvements to existing operations.

“With rising demand, environmental considerations and the need to venture into more-remote areas, mining companies may be facing some of their biggest challenges ever,” said Keiran Coulton, president, Global Industries, GE Energy. “By thinking systems instead of products and complementing our expertise with Foster Wheeler’s, we can quickly deliver infrastructure that enables more productive mining practically anywhere.”

These joint solutions also are designed to minimize mining’s environmental impact and create more sustainable and cleaner systems. For example, energy generation solutions can reuse emissions to generate even more energy and “recycle” contaminants. Wastewater processing can safely process water for mining needs, return clean water to the earth or process it for safe consumption.

When the world’s economic picture improves, mining companies will see demand increase even more to meet growing manufacturing and energy needs. The groundwork that Foster Wheeler Chile S. A. and GE Energy are laying today will leave economies better prepared for recovery and growth for decades.

Global Industries is GE Energy’s new cross-business unit that takes the best technologies from across GE Energy’s diverse portfolio and interconnects them to maximize efficiency and results for customers in critical business sectors such as food and beverage, metals, mining, petrochemicals and unconventional fuels.
