Tetra Tech Proteus Finalist in Bentley Be Inspired Awards

Tetra Tech Proteus is one of three finalists in the Innovation in Mining category at the annual Bentley Be Inspired Awards competition, part of The Year in Infrastructure 2015 Conference, that brings together infrastructure professionals and members of the media from around the globe to share innovative practices in infrastructure project design, engineering, construction, and operations and celebrate the extraordinary work of the world’s architects, engineers, contractors and owner-operators.

Tetra Tech Proteus is one of three finalist in the Innovation in Mining category:

  •  Tetra Tech Proteus – Kvanefjeld Rare Earth: Uranium Project – (Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland)
  • CCTEG Beijing Huayu Engineering Co, Ltd. – 3D Standardized Design and Application of Main Power House of Xiaozhuang Mine Coal Preparation Plant – (Bin County, Shaanxi, China)

  • Changsha Design and Research Institute of Nonferrous Metallurgy – Qulong Copper Polymetallic Deposits – (Tibet, China)


Tetatech PRO has successfully integrated Bentleys Microstation (proposed) plant 3D model (produced by PRO) and Google Earth 3D actual terrain spatial scan/satellite photography.  This has enabled our client to successfully present to all stakeholders both environmental and visual impacts of the proposed plant onto the existing environment. 

Of particular importance where presentations to the Greenland's EPA Authority and to the representatives of the nearby coastal village.  This integration also assisted with a better estimation of the cut to fill and roads layout (both in hardrock - basalt/gabro) which represent a significant project cost.

Greenland Mining and Energy Limited (GMEL), a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, is intending to develop the $USD1.5Bn Kvanefjeld Rare Earth and Uranium Project in South Greenland.  The proposed development features a mine, concentrator, refinery, port, accommodation village and infrastructure.  GMEL engaged Tetra Tech Proteus (Tetra Tech) to contribute to a Feasibility Study, completed May 2015. Tetra Tech’s scope included multi-discipline design, capital cost estimates and implementation planning assistance.
