Aperçu du projet


Glencore’s McArthur River Mine has expanded their flotation capacity by installing 4 new rougher flotation cells and converting the existing rougher flotation cells to a 7th stage cleaning circuit. This project aims to provide both increased treatment capacity and improved concentrate grades to meet changing zinc concentrate market. Requirements to incorporate new 4 stage rougher flotation cells, as well as flocculent mixing system.


Portée du projet


  • Yokogawa CS3000 Control System including 6 operator screens in the plant and 3 field control stations (FCS) across the plant
  • Brownfields project requiring reverse engineering of existing control logic and recoding of system, one box at a time, without changing plant control logic
  • Extensive co-ordination with site engineers and operators to, test, install on limited shutdown and commission


Faits saillants du projet

  • Mipac’s project team has interfaced across vendors, EPCM and construction organisations in this challenging location to integrate the control system to achieve commissioning, power station startup and synchronization and delivery of power to the National grid
  • First power from set 1 through to stable continuous 75MW production
  • Operational support and production development continues for set 1
  • Commissioning, startup and first power continues for set 2
