Europe’s first Dodge drive system installed in Norway

Europe’s first Dodge controlled start transmission (CST) drive system, part of ABB’s motors portfolio, is helping prevent repeat breakdowns of a 700m conveyor at a Norwegian mine, saving up to US$120,000 in lost production each time
The Titania A/S mine located in Sokndal, Norway is the world’s largest open-cast ilmenite mine, producing nearly 850,000t/y. A 15 year-old conveyor transferred ilmenite ore from the primary crusher to mountain silos, where it is stockpiled before crushing, blending and milling to produce titanium dioxide (TiO2), a powder used in the whitening of products from paints to toothpastes.

The mine’s maintenance team was struggling with repeated breakdowns of the conveyor’s existing mechanical drive system, which peaked during the harsh winter of 2010-11.

“Everything that we do in the mine is geared towards doubling the waste-to-ore ratio,” said Knut Petter Netland, Titania’s mine manager. “Failure to control this aspect of productivity means we face a massive increase in production costs. The conveyor’s capacity was not good enough. The reliability was not good enough. And the stockpiles between the primary crusher and the milling plant were too small.”

Initially, the hydraulic couplings that provide the conveyor’s soft start were to be replaced with an electrical option but this was dismissed due to the need for a new supply network, additional mountain top electrical room and costly cabling.

With the help of Kellve Sweden AB, a specialist in mining conveyors, the CST was selected. The CST is a 2-in-1 gearbox that combines a planetary gear reducer with an integral wet clutch system. When coupled to an AC induction motor the CST gearbox converts the motors high-speed, low-torque input to a low-speed, high-torque output, delivering smooth control, with enough power to drive the largest and longest conveyors.

ABB’s specialists in customised bulk material handling solutions engineered an integrated package that includes motors, CST reducers, high and low speed couplings and pulley assemblies with bearings.

Installed during a three-week planned shutdown, the CST system also features an ABB PLC control together with an industrial VPN router that provides a means of support 24 hours a day, assisting in system monitoring or troubleshooting and supporting the system without the cost of time and travel to the site.

Titania’s deputy leader for mine maintenance, Stig Olsen commented: “For me it’s big, it’s strong, it seems to run and run and run. The solution is robust, it’s reliable and it brings lower maintenance.”

On 14th May 2016 Tega CSR team visited the schools adopted by Tega Industries Limited. We divided the group into three teams to cover all the three schools of Joypul, Sardapally, and Nabapally.
This time, the program was to bring out the creativity inside the little artists at the schools. The day was started by conducting a drawing and painting competition for the students of Classes II, III and IV. The topics that were given by the team included pollution and water conservation, so that the children were inclined to express their creative thoughts towards the very basic ideas of hygiene, conservation of natural resources and cleanliness, thus enabling them to become more aware of their surroundings.
