National Project for Mining and Strategic Mineral Extraction and Associated Economic Minerals.
A National Project for Mining and Strategic Mineral Extraction and Associated Economic Minerals Leaching Beds. The project is considered state of art as we were assigned to design, build and operate the project, and it is considered the first project of its kind in terms of productivity and operating philosophy that mainly dependent on automatic control systems.
The project consists of the following phases:
- Water transferring system
- Acid transferring system
- Acid preparation system
- Final Product system
The operation of the project by PLC/HMI system that provides monitoring and controls of all the above phases; the control system is based on Siemens PLC and I/O system. The SCADA system is based on the TIA portal. The project also contains about 1500 meters piping works with full necessary accessories and about 50 automatic valves and many measuring devices for level, temperature, PH and conductivity.
In addition to advanced and appropriate pumping systems to work with acids and special chemical operating conditions and based on ABB drives, the innovative design also allows control in more than one way to ensure optimum operation and security of the system.
