    Challenges

    Complex, energy and resource-intensive processes like mining, require sophisticated control solutions. They should maximise efficiency and optimise resource consumption (electricity and fuel), even in the most challenging conditions.

    • Solutions

      Advanced Process Control (APC) is a software tool that collects information from process and field devices (via supervisory, historian and control systems). It applies the right control strategy, according to process requirements and to determine optimised set points for the most efficient performance of the system.

      APC strategies are able to work with constraints and resolve conflicting process objectives.
