Our employees commonly possess 25+ years of experience working in the field as Plant Managers, Operations Managers, and/or Project Managers. They have also generally worked as Engineers in different disciplines specifically geared to the industries we serve. Our professional team will help you plan, develop and implement sound business decisions from an economic, technical, and market standpoint.

PENTA works closely with customers to offer professional industry opinions and insights to minimize investment risk for brownfield or greenfield projects and business ventures.

The thoroughness of our studies include:

  • Plant & Company Valuations

Our valuations are comprehensive and take into consideration many factors such as business assets, mining reserves, personnel, management, market, production methods, historical earnings, reliability, financials, and future projections.

  • Energy Efficiency and Recovery Studies

PENTA will provide thoughtful and innovative solutions to improving your plant’s energy efficiency for electrical and fuel economics. We will analyze the power potential, the most logical configuration for Waste Heat Recovery systems, and the economic viability for WHR based power plants.

  • Minerals Resource & Ore Reserve Evaluations

Our minerals characterization specialist, geologists, and mining engineers direct the sampling, core drilling, mine planning, geological mapping, and reserve calculations. After analyzing these calculations, they will recommend the optimum raw mix design. This will help to define your pre-blending strategy, it will help you with the preparation of optimum raw mix for quality and economics, equalize the quality across deposits to extend the mine life, help you with identification of additive raw materials, and give you an evaluation of overburden as an additive.

  • Market Studies

PENTA always focuses on providing comprehensive evaluations by factoring in future growth potential, current market analysis, pricing analysis, potential risks, and competition.

  • Conceptual Engineering

The pre-planning phases of a project includes the consulting and the engineering. Short-cutting on the pre-planning phases usually translates to a lot of rework down the line. If you want your project to be completed on-time and on-budget then be sure to focus your time and energy on quality engineering and consulting before you begin any project.

  • Economic & Financial Analysis

PENTA’s extensive experience in the mining and minerals industries helps us provide realistic operating and capital cost estimates, accurate product pricing, and future growth potential based on market trends. By generating these cash flow scenarios, investors and lenders can accurately predict the economics of each investment based on after-tax cash flow based on cost of capital.

  • Logistics & Plant Operations Studies

PENTA conducts a comprehensive survey of the manufacturing facilities to identify specific areas where efficiency improvements can be implemented. Modification of existing equipment versus installing new equipment is assessed. The focus (or goal) is to implement changes to areas where payback occurs from 18-36 months.

We also analyze the maintenance and reliability, organizational structure, preventive and predictive systems, the staff, methods, and procedures involved with plant operations. PENTA uses industry specific and country specific maintenance programs to customize each project to achieve the best results.

  • Environmental and Regulatory Compliance

NESHAP compliance regulations have been put in place by the EPA and the compliance deadlines fall between 2015-2018. From a social standpoint, PENTA believes most of these new regulations will be a benefit to society. We would be happy to help you with any necessary plant modifications.

  • Bankable Feasibility Studies

PENTA has been working with financial institutions for thirty years. We understand the type of economic analysis they expect when financing a project. We provide investors and lenders a thorough and objective report to address the needs of each party involved.
