Project: Manganese Ore Handling Plant

Client: Kalagadi Manganese

Project Requirements

The client built an ore handling plant to supply ore to an existing sinter plant, and transport the sintered product out to railway wagons. ControlNET Consulting was required to develop and commission the control software for this new plant as well as interface it with the existing Sinter Plant control system.

The Control was implemented using the Siemens PCS 7 platform. Motors were controlled using ABB VSDs and Siemens simocodes on profibus. A sophisticated, easy to use and maintain system was handed over to the client under budget and on schedule.
