Automation with BulkExpert™
The order comprises a core digital solution and advanced automation for three stockyard machines at one port and eight stockyard machines at the other (including standalone and combined stackers and bucket wheel reclaimers). The solution will deliver several benefits to the customer, including higher throughput, greater efficiency and increased guaranteed performance. Extended machine life and reduced maintenance can also be expected due to lower stress on the machinery. The BulkExpert solution will be fully integrated with the customer’s own systems and will provide safer remote operations thanks to technical innovations like an enhanced anti-collision and collision-avoidance system. Elsewhere, quality management will keep track of all material movements in the stockyard, while a sophisticated material blending control will reduce quality deviations, enabling the customer to save valuable natural resources.
