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.

The company provides its clients with remote location maintenanc­e crews and long term operationa­l support for fabricatio­n, installati­on, removal, repair and refurbishm­ent at mobile and fixed plant facilities.
