The Australian Mining Review - - THE UPPER SPENCER GULF -

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.
