All set at APD Engineering for Factory Acceptance Testing of new protection relays to be integrating with an existing Power Management Scheme using IEC61850.
APD Engineering was engaged to perform site commissioning of the process control systems for the new plant, enabling the automatic operation of the new plant equipment and ensuring plant ramp-up for operations.
APD were engaged by Western Power to complete detailed design & drafting for the new transformer circuit & switchroom at the Rangeway substation, Geraldton, WA
Secondary scope to facilitate reconfiguration of 66kV transmission lines connecting to the Alinta Power Station on the BHP network.
APD was contracted by BHP Iron Ore to perform detailed design and Process Control System (PCS) integration for a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) replacement of two vent fan soft starters at Wheelara and Orebody (OB18). Based on the client’s drawing, specifications and documentation APD prepared detail designs, executed the integration and completed the project.
APD were engaged to perform detailed design and development integrating the conveyor emergency stop system into the plant Process Control System. BHP Billiton Iron Ore had identified the need to replace the existing conveyor emergency stop modules at their Area C mine. APD saw the project through from development and design to construction supervision, testing and commissioning.
APD were commissioned to perform detailed design and development in integrating two new potable water tanks and associated equipment into the plant Process Control System at BHP Billiton Iron Ore Yandi Mine.
APD undertook the design to BHP requirements; automated processes development, testing and commissioning; construction support; site commissioning and project delivery.
APD were consulted by Rio Tinto’s Nammuldi Agricultural Project when facing challenges with their Pivot Control System. After an assessment of the existing infrastructure APD developed a design that not only improved the system but simplified it, making it practical and cost effective. APD also conducted the testing, construction and commissioning of the project.
