BHP Billiton Mitsubishi
Hay Point, Queensland, Australia
Calibre was responsible for the design, programming and commissioning of automation and communication systems to enable the Hay Point Expansion. This expansion involved the construction of a third berth, addition of a shiploader, and replacement of existing conveyors and surge bins.
The control systems upgrade involved the automation of ship-loaders, conveyors, and related infrastructure. The scope of works included:
- Project management
- Development of functional specifications for control systems
- Creation of the control system code and SCADA
- Successful integration with existing plant’s systems
A significant aspect of the project was the alignment of OT and IT systems into a single support methodology.
