Mining and Metals Solutions

Mining and Metals SolutionsThe Challenge: In recent years, the mining and metals industry has seen unprecedented demand for raw materials used in construction, driven by a surge in demand and resulting high commodity prices. The industry’s short-term priority is to rapidly build capacity to bring raw materials to market and take advantage of these high prices.

The Solution: The Bentley mining and metals solution offers both short-term and long-term benefits to help increase the efficiency of capital projects associated with the design, procurement, and construction of mines and processing plants. Key to both areas of benefits is central, consistent, and available engineering data and the most comprehensive set of design and analysis tools.

The Bentley mining and metals solution addresses the areas of mining/transportation and ore processing/refining.

Bentley is already a major supplier to the EPC companies involved in all areas of mining infrastructure development. Of the top 20 mining companies (measured by market capitalization), 10 are currently Bentley customers and all of the top 5 are Bentley users.
