BEP of Centralize Switchgear at AMS


Details:

Location: Secunda, South Africa
Owner: Sasol South Africa Ltd


Scope of Work:

  • The BEP phase includes the centralization of switchgear in the Ammonium Sulphate (AMS) substation, which requires C&I interfacing equipment to be moved from the blower house and compressor house due to the switchgear being moved to the AMS substation.
  • The control equipment is currently in the switchgear panel at the blower house and interfaces to the air heaters and blower Motor Control Centers (MCC’s), as well as the control of field devices via the ET200 remote IO station. The following possible migration solutions of the control equipment and interfaces will be evaluated and presented with a recommendation:
    • a. Keep the control supply power in the existing panel and extend the Electrical and Control (E&I) interface to the new switchgear location.
    • b. Move the control equipment to the AMS rack room, house it in a suitable panel, extend cables to the field junction boxes and the MCC’s.
    • c. Build a Honeywell control panel / cubical at the AMS rack room, using some of the available unused equipment and then hardwire the field devices and E&I interface.
    • d. Build / modify a Honeywell control cubical at the Limestone Ammonium Nitrate (LAN)
      Rack room to include IO modules and Profibus modules. There are existing copper cables from the LAN rack room to the field junction boxes that can be used to connect the existing field devices to the controller. The fibre will be rerouted to the AMS substation for E / I interfaces.
