Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Case Study : Tata Steel Drive Control Panel Refurbishment

Intelect were contracted by GE Energy to complete the mechanical design, installation and refurbishment of an onsite Control System based at a Tata Steel site.

Following an engineering site survey, the installation of three replacement drive control systems was completed during a shutdown period of 4 days, in order to best suit the interests of the client.

The installation stage of the project consisted of replacing the obsolete drive with onsite copper work modifications, and upgrading the control PLC systems. Preparation work prior to the installation was completed in-house by our team of fully qualified engineers, and manufactured to the design drawings and specifications of the client.

The project was completed on schedule and within budget, ensuring complete client satisfaction.

Major features of the project included:

  • Design and Build of New Blender Control Panel
  • System Software and Coding
  • Engineering Site Surveys
  • Non-Intrusive Preliminary Installation Works
  • New Blender Panel Installation
  • Commissioning
  • Removal of Redundant Electrical Equipment

The project was completed within a short time frame to accommodate the client’s production schedule, and to minimise downtime. Installation and commissioning of the system was completed over a weekend by our skilled installation engineers, with prior planning and preparations taking place in advance within our specialised Panel workshop.

News & Features

KP Billingham

Intelect and KP Snacks, Teesside

Intelect's John Henderson (Senior Electrical Supervisor) heads up the team of 5 electrical engineers who work on a long term contract at KP’s manufacturing plant on Teesside.

Intelect have been working at the plant since 2000, with John’s team permanently on site since 2005. Their role on the site is split between project, maintenance and repair work to both the production line and the building.

Working alongside KP’s own staff

The factory underwent substantial works when the roof was replaced in 2010, Intelect were heavily involved in this project, installing the switchboard into a new switch room, connecting the electrical and mechanical services to various parts of the line.

Special projects

Alongside the contracted electrical work, Intelect are involved with special projects to increase productivity, safety and efficiency of the food processing and packaging lines. The following video, produced by KP Snacks, shows the inside of their manufacturing plant on Teesside. Below the video we've described projects that Intelect have worked on as part of their ongoing relationship with KP.

Process Monitoring

Process monitoring allows the client to measure the input and output of particular production line, helping to optimise energy conservation and performance.

Working with the KP team, Intelect have installed energy monitors, airflow meters and photocells including the design and manufacture of any brackets, fixings and guards.

Conveyors and robotic systems

Most of the conveyor systems used to transport product around the facility were designed, manufactured and installed by our mechanical and electrical teams. The robotic auto palletisation equipment was purchased from a third party company and installed by Intelect as part of the packaging line.

Access bridges and inspection platforms

Our mechanical team were also involved in the design and installation of stepover, access and inspection platforms, all of which are built in-house to BSEN 1090.

Electric, air and water supply

During the process area roof refurbishment in 2010, Intelect installed:

  • Emergency lighting.
  • Electric supplies for lighting and machines.
  • Airlines for pneumatics actuation.

Additional pipework and air handling units were designed and installed by Intelect to provide:

  • Steam & condensate pipework.
  • Air handling units and extract fans.

The team

John Henderson’s team at KP are self managed and responsible for their own equipment and practices on site.

  • All staff are IPAF accredited.
  • Dressed in all the appropriate PPE for the food industry with internal pockets.
  • Single piece food safe pens.

We recently purchased an additional MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) and podium scaffolds to reduce the need to use stepladders on site, the podium scaffolds provide a stable and compact platform that allows staff to work comfortably and safely at lower heights. The MEWP's can also fit into tighter spaces and they extend to around 5.5 metres, for heights in excess of this we also keep scissor lifts and boom lifts on site.

Intelect are a multidiscipline company and are able to support the KP team with skills in order for them to achieve their daily activities or project work.
