New Electrical Components for Roy Hill Stockpile Reclaim System

November 8, 2020 December 10th, 2020 Company News
OFI was engaged by RCR Mining Technologies to collaboratively design, fabricate, construct and commission the electrical/control component of 2 x 3000TPH apron feeders for the Roy Hill Stockpile Reclaim System.

This project was fast tracked involving the design and fabrication of custom built dual skinned outdoor motor control centres capable of handling the harsh Northwest environment.

Each MCC housed 150kW variable speed drives with on board forced ventilation / pressurisation with cyclonic dust separation.

The installation of MCC’s, generators, instrumentation, electrical field devices was done whilst conveyor was in operation with safeguards in place, with final programming, commissioning and SCADA interfacing was all completed during a short outage.

In line with OFI’s commitment to ‘always deliver’, this project was completed on time and with minimal impact to client operations.
