Success Stories

Project: Parral Tailings Plant – COANZAMEX

Overview: For over 350 Years, Parral Chihuahua was famous for its Silver & Gold production, However by 1930, “La prieta mine” shutdown due to available technology and feasibility cost of production. In 2014, COANZAMEX started up a new processing plant for reclaiming the tailings unprocessed ore.

A multinational team, got together to make this project a reality. An EPC from South Africa, working with ECN Automation as the Main Automation Contractor in Mexico, with the end-user capital investment from Canada & Great Britain.

Scope: ECN acted as the Main automation contractor, providing with the engineering of the control system, the Development of the Process Controllers and HMI logic, Electrical Houses supply and installation of MCCs, control network communications, Instrumentation specification and installation, and Control system commissioning and startup.

Best Control System Standards, such as the use of Project Management from the PMI, and CSIA best practices ensured that a one month of commissioning timeframe was met. Thanks to these practices, ECN continues to be the preferred solution partner for COANZAMEX for existing improvement projects and plant expansions.
