PotashCorp-Aurora Deploys Tropos Wireless Communications Network at Aurora, North Carolina Phosphate Mine and Processing Plant
May 22 12
Tropos Networks Inc. announced that PCS Phosphate Company Inc. has deployed a Tropos wireless communications network at its Aurora, North Carolina (PotashCorp-Aurora) phosphate mine. The outdoor network transports telemetry data from instrumentation on mining and processing equipment such as shovels, draglines, conveyors and feeders. Real-time telemetry data monitoring enables PotashCorp-Aurora to minimize unscheduled maintenance and increase uptime at its round-the-clock, seven-day-a-week operation. PotashCorp-Aurora mines and processes phosphate ore. The facility is the world's vertically integrated fertilizer enterprise. It is a supplier to the agriculture, animal nutrition, and industrial chemical markets. The plant site sits adjacent to the Pamlico River and began operating in 1964. It employs approximately 1,000 permanent and up to 550 contract workers. The Tropos network employs fixed mesh routers deployed around the mine's perimeter as well as mobile mesh routers mounted on mining equipment. It transports data collected by sensors on the mining equipment to the facility's operations center where the information is monitored and analyzed. By ensuring that equipment is operating within specified parameters and predictively determining the need for maintenance, PotashCorp-Aurora avoids unscheduled maintenance and costly downtime. In addition to equipment telemetry data, the network is used to communicate manufacturing process data and to support use of IP phones.
