ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won an order worth $38 million to design, engineer and supply an integrated automation and electrification system for Anglo American’s new Grosvenor coal mine in Queensland on the east coast of Australia.

The Grosvenor coal mine is expected to produce five million tonnes per year of metallurgical coal for export markets over its projected life of 26 years. Metallurgical coal is a key raw material in steelmaking that is used by 70% of the world’s steel producers. The new mine will feature a standard longwall design and will target the same coal seam as Anglo American’s existing Moranbah North mine. The new mine is expected to start production in 2013 with commissioning of the longwall in 2016.

“Our presence in the Australian market is growing as customers continue to embrace ABB’s integrated automation and power solutions to improve the efficiency and productivity of their operations,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation division. “Our industry expertise and innovative technology offering ensures an optimized solution to support Anglo American’s future mine.”

ABB’s solution for the project will help the new mine operate at peak energy and production efficiency, while providing a reliable electrical supply with less space required for the main substation.

ABB’s delivery includes ABB’s Unigear ZS1 switchgear and space saving water-cooled multi-drive equipment for a smaller substation footprint that will result in a lower capital cost for the project. The customized solution will also use ABB’s System 800xA automation system to integrate and control all processes and power systems to enhance productivity. System 800xA is well-suited for composite mining projects that realize engineering and operational cost savings with the integration of plant-wide process control and electrical power systems.

ABB’s scope of supply also includes a 66 kilovolt (kV) substation, power and distribution transformers, 15 modular pre-fabricated switchrooms equipped with medium-voltage switchgear along with intelligent low-voltage motor control centers, power quality systems and multi-drive variable speed drives. ABB will provide design, engineering, testing and project commissioning as well as other site services.

Equipment delivery is scheduled to commence mid 2013.

Anglo American is one of the world’s largest mining companies. Their portfolio of mining businesses spans bulk commodities from iron ore and manganese, metallurgical coal and thermal coal to base metals including copper and nickel; and precious metals and minerals – in which it is a global leader in both platinum and diamonds.

ABB (abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people.
