Sissingue Gold Mine – Maintenance System Development

Africa, Côte d'Ivoire

Lycopodium completed the development of equipment maintenance strategies, identification of commissioning and operation spare parts requirements for the Sissingue Gold Mine in Cote D’ivoire, Africa.

The project involved interaction with Perth based client representatives during the construction phase of the project.

The asset register and maintenance strategies were developed using the Lycopodium in-house software tool EMDS (Equipment Maintenance Development System) which outlines for each asset, the required maintenance tasks and their specified resource allocations, system conditions (online / offline), frequencies and durations. The strategies were based on a combination of the supplied Installation and Operations Manuals (IOM) and our EMDS FMEA Maintenance Library.

Spares were identified for each maintainable item in the asset register. Each spare part was analysed to determine the criticality and likelihood to be used during the equipments planned life cycle. Spares were also validated against the developed maintenance strategies to ensure all parts required to support the primary and corrective maintenance actions were identified as stock items.

Maintenance documents and data upload sheets were developed for integration of the developed maintenance into the Clients CMMS (PRONTO).

Key deliverables for the project included:

  1. Asset Register Hierarchy;
  2. Maintenance Tactics;
  3. Preventative Maintenance Inspection Documents; and
  4. Spares Recommendations.

The project was completed within schedule ensuring the client had an implemented maintenance program prior to commissioning the process plant.
