Project Synopsis

Automation system for Raw Material Handling System commissioned at Nirma Bhavnagar for Lignite Conveying from Mining to Bunkers for a thermal Power Station.

The system controls monitoring various equipments such as truck tippler, which feed chain conveyors. The material then goes to Lump Crusher via belt conveyors, DR Crusher, Diverter Gates, Impact Crusher, Bucket Elevators, Vibrato Feeder, Lime stone bunkers, Coke bunkers etc.
The system is being monitored and controlled through Redundant WinCC SCADA, communicating through SINEC-H1 communication network.

The scope of work included:

  1. Design of control systems.
  2. Software development
  3. Commissioning
