The Thiess RWE Joint Venture delivers operations and maintenance services for continuous mining systems designed to maximise productivity and reduce long-term operating costs in open-cast mines. With a proven capability to plan and deliver best-practice mine operations, Thiess RWE offers low cost, sustainable mining solutions.
In a climate of volatility, leading mining companies are re-positioning to ensure they optimise production at the lowest possible cost. However, a sustainable step change in unit costs will typically require both new equipment technology as well as structural changes to operations.
Continuous mining systems such as bucket wheel excavators, and in-pit crushing and conveying (IPCC) systems, provide the most cost-effective solutions for mine operations with long strips or deep pits.
The Thiess RWE joint venture combines RWE’s world-leading technical and operational expertise in open-cast continuous mining systems with Thiess’ proven performance in delivery of large scale mine infrastructure and full-service contract mining.
This unique, international joint venture provides the full suite of in-house mine planning, engineering and operations and maintenance services.
