To meet increasing consumer demand, the Barro Group sought to develop a new greenfield quarry at Mountain View Quarries in Point Wilson Victoria and requested tenders for the project.
All four of the electrical tender packages for the new plant were awarded to Gordyn & Palmer. The packages included the Electrical Control System, Electrical Engineering and Switchboards, Electrical Site Installation and Commissioning and High Voltage Design and Installation.
Gordyn & Palmer is a wholly owned private company operating since 1978, specialising in industrial plant automation systems, electrical engineering and electrical installations.
The company’s reputation as a ‘knowledgeable organisation delivering excellence through innovation’ is well known and respected throughout Australia and overseas.
The challenge ahead was to use the latest technologies to deliver a state of the art crushing and processing plant that sets the benchmark for productivity and reliability.
Intelligent Motor Control Gets Smarter
Gordyn & Palmer called on their longstanding relationship with Rockwell Automation and NHP Electrical Engineering Products to deliver a turnkey solution for the new 600 tonnes per hour quarry that leveraged the latest technology in networked intelligent motor control.
