Magnesita partnered with Gettle to provide installation of new service distribution equipment, motor control centers, and new control systems.
Additional project components included:
- A complete rewire of the customer’s electrical system from the Screening plant through grinding.
- Installation of fiber optics and data wiring for the automation system communications.
A crucial component of this one-year long project involved keeping the system running while putting the new system into place for a system changeover.
Gettle’s highly-experienced field personnel worked closely with the customer to limit production interruption by working directly with their onsite personnel. Scheduling and installation was the result of constant communication between the customer and Gettle’s project management and installation team. The customer and estimator worked closely in the beginning to come up with a budget for the overall project which came in as estimated.
Gettle’s comprehensive approach offered Magnesita one source for design and installation of both the power installation as well as the communications for the automated portion of the project.
This was a very large, long-term project came in under budget and allowed additions to the original project design without increasing the contract amount. This was collaboration between the customer and Gettle which formed an excellent bond and allowed for many other projects to be performed to optimize the Magnesita facility.
