    Project implementation results

    Project description

    In late December, 2008, the pre-commissioning activities for trommelling site APCS of Plant No. 14 of Aikhal Mining and Processing Division (Aykhal settlement) of AK ALROSA were finished. Due to modernization of the existing automation systems and replacement of the outdated systems with modern software and hardware complex and equipment, as well as in view of increasing production capacity, a demand for the mentioned works appeared. According to the results of the project, the plant will be able to meet the estimated and abnormal requirements of diamond mining. The first stage of automation ended in 2007 with the introduction of APCS of ore dressing site and bunkering centers. The results of this work provided the basis for master's theses of our plant production engineers. The software and hardware complex of automated control system was made on the basis of Siemens and SIMATIC S-400 and S-300 controllers. Data exchange between the operators and the control system was carried out through Profibus-DP and IndustrialEthernet networks.

     

    Results:

    In general, the system provided maximum performance at minimum energy cost, as well as improvement in accident prevention in mined rock processing by minimizing manual work performed by employees.
