Consulting & Project Development
Virta consults on system configuration options and alternative layouts during the concept, scoping and pre-feasibility study phases of project development.
With few exceptions, the vast majority of bulk material handling systems are custom designed. There is rarely only one solution, due to factors such as climate, material properties, elevation, mine life, terrain, capital expenditures (CAPEX) vs. operating expenses (OPEX), and other variables. We offer all our clients specialized consulting services in the early stages of projects, including alternative system layouts and configurations, budget quotations, system calculations, trade-offs and optimizations. These efforts, in the initial stages of project development, can be instrumental in significantly reducing risk and increasing confidence in cost estimates. As early as the concept, scoping and pre-feasibility study levels, we welcome the opportunity for participation in our clients' projects. The sooner we’re involved, the more help we can provide.
