APD was hired to perform detailed design and development in integrating the conveyor emergency stop system into the plant Process Control System (PCS) at BHP Mine Area C.
APD provide a complete range of on-site field testing and commissioning services for power infrastructure. APD also offer tailored field engineering solutions and other niche services. For example, network audits, performance studies, troubleshooting and investigative support services.
The commissioning team comprises of electrical engineers and technicians with protection systems experience, proficient in conducting power system studies and the preparation of settings for Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) for voltages up to 500kV. APD own a full suite of testing equipment covering the various tests commonly performed in an electrical environment.
Additionally, our engineers are very familiar with the design, operation and settings requirements for recognised device manufacturers, including GE, ALSTOM (formerly AREVA), SIEMENS, SEL, ABB, Schneider and RMS. This multi-relay skillset and design capability delivers project savings through the deployment of a single team.
To ensure our field engineers meet the project milestones, they are backed by our extensive pool of design and consulting engineers fully equipped with a comprehensive suite of engineering application and drafting software.
