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.
