:: MIPAC Completes Major Greenfield Process Control Project with CYMG in China
MIPAC, a leading provider of process control engineering solutions, has successfully implemented and commissioned an Emerson Delta V and Fieldbus measurement and control system at China’s newest Lead Smelter. MIPAC was contracted by Xstrata Technology and successfully commissioned the new control system for the CYMG ISASMELT in August 2005.
As a result of the MIPAC delivered process control solution, CYMG will realise lower production costs, a safer operating environment and minimise negative environmental effects from the lead smelter.
The ISASMELT at Qujing is part of a major Greenfield plant designed to process 160 000 tonnes of Lead Concentrate per annum. It is owned by China State and is a major metals/chemicals business in China.
"MIPAC’s expertise in major control system implementations, their international project experience and their recent success in China made them an obvious choice for this project with CYMG." said Joe Pease, General Manager, Xstrata Technology
CYMG and Xstrata Technology selected MIPAC to specify the measurement and control equipment and installation requirements as well as design, configure and commission the Emerson DeltaV control system for the Smelter and associated feed system.
"China is one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a large consumer of mineral resources. This puts great pressure on mineral processing companies to upgrade smelter capacities, increase productivity and efficiency and reduce negative environmental impacts. We are pleased to be able to help CYMG with these very issues. We are also confident that we are in an excellent position to supply process control solutions and services to the region as this is now our second major implementation in China." said Paul Puusaari, CYMG Project Director and MIPAC Shareholder and Director.
For the CYMG project MIPAC provided the following services:
Also in China, prior to the CYMG commissioning, MIPAC worked with Xstrata Technology on a significant new copper smelter in Kunming.
