Updating of Intake 1

The plant con­sists of two sec­tions, Inta­ke 1 and the Mill. The Mill still uses the silo bins for sto­rage. Inta­ke 1 dates back to the seven­ties and was ope­ra­ted through a mimic dia­gram befo­re the con­ver­si­on. The Mill was alre­a­dy equip­ped with a pro­cess con­trol system dating back to the nine­ties. We updated the com­ple­te con­trol system. All the switch­gear of Inta­ke 1 was repla­ced, and the con­trol cabi­nets of the Mill were equip­ped with new I/O systems. In addi­ti­on, an enti­re­ly new pro­cess con­trol system cove­ring both plant sec­tions was imple­men­ted and put into service.
