Fast Track Project For Vametco Alloys

JB Switchgear Solutions proved their mettle once again when asked to manufacture a replacement motor control centre in a very short time.

DRA Global engaged JB Switchgear for this urgent job when it was found that the equipment previously supplied did not meet the customers’ requirements.

The panel is destined for the Kiln Off Gas project at Mothotlong Brits Vametco mine, which is intended to enhance productivity and reduce emissions at the Kiln Off Gas Scrubber system.

JB Switchgear reduced the footprint of the previous MCC by using its popular ‘Eagle’ series back-to-back panel design which carries comprehensive type-test certification for compliance with IEC 61439 and IEC/TR 61641. The MCC included 36 x DOL starters, 3 x feeders and 16 x variable speed drives.

JB Switchgear manufactured the MCC in only 4 weeks, complete with internal testing, after which DRA/Vametco did the official FAT and programming of the VSDs and intelligent starter overload relays.
