MTL carried out the mechanical design and contractor site management/ commissioning for the control and protection systems upgrade. The detailed design included: development of P&IDs and a functional description (FD) for the machines and for the station, followed by equipment specification and design to meet the requirements of the FD.
The project was delivered successfully with the station recommissioned in August/September 2006. The commissioned systems operated with remarkable reliability, with over 99% availability achieved in the first month of operation.
