Sunshine Silver Mining - Mexico
Pump control automation system
Automate the pumps at the new mine to remove water from the tunnels of the underground mine and ensure that it is decanted.
We did the design and engineering of the project including the functional description, the control scheme, the choice of instruments, the design, the manufacturing and the programming of a PLC and a Remote IO and the programming of the HMI interface.
We commissioned on site and offered training to operators.
We also built the electrical substation and starters that provided power to the pumps and the VFDs.
