Aquest completes work at Arrium IPF
AQUEST Electrical was recently contracted to help complete the iron ore integrated processing facility (IPF) at Arrium’s Iron Knob and Iron Baron projects in South Australia.
The IPF is critical to the mining and steelmaking processes, with the objective of improving the quality by refining the ore to raise the Fe content and fetch higher prices.
Aquest provided services throughout the entire project, right down to mobilising and demobilising all site offices and workshops.
This work included the installation of 33KV transformers for the plant and process water demands; and all electrical cabling, variable frequency drives and field devices for the conveyors, screens and pumps.
Aquest also completed upgrading switchrooms and VF drives for pump stations, as well as optic fibre installations, terminations, repairs with full testing and certification.
The IPF was integrated with existing plant efficiently, and without costly delays to production.
