Pellet plant Schwarze Pumpe
In the Lausitz Lignite Mining Region the VATTENFALL Europe Mining AG operates the largest plant of lignite refinement in Europe. The large complex plant system combines the raw coal preparation (crushing and screening) and drying (16 large tube dryer) the coal as pre-treatment levels.
The dry coal is compressed into fuel briquettes, pulverised to dust or loaded directly as a fluidised-bed coal.
The total complex comprises approximately 2,500 electric drives in various main and auxiliary systems.
|Automation System||More than 100 SPS SIMATIC S5 and S7 regulating the complex plants. There are extensive Profibus and Industrial Ethernet networks and visualization takes place in a central control room with SCADA System PRODAVIS.|
|Scope of work AVI||Over 20 years the AVI GmbH has realized numerous projects in the Schwarze Pumpe briquette factory. Approximately 80% of the control software has been created by AVI: bunker, primary crusher, complete wet servicea, every 16 drying systems, subsequent treatment, pressing building, automatic briquette loading, many dust collecting systems, steam- and condensate systems, higher-level coal quality management.|
