Gold Producer Insources Maintenance to Release Value

Published: 2021

CHALLENGE

A major gold producer decided to insource maintenance activities previously carried out by a contractor to gain tighter control of cost expenditure and time. DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) was asked to de-risk and accelerate the transition and ensure smooth business and operational continuity without negative impact on operations.



SOLUTION

DSS evaluated the client’s business case including tradeoffs. To enable the company to transition sooner and ramp up quicker, DSS completed a detailed insourcing planning diagnostic. The resulting plan addressed priority risks and opportunities associated with insourcing. DSS next worked with the organization to ensure full visibility of the plan at head office and local operational levels to assist with and de-risk day-to-day execution.
