Lonmin Plc

Lonmin Plc replaced its existing iFIX SCADA system at the platinum smelter in Marikana, with a modern solution based on System Platform.

Goals

  • Replace existing iFIX SCADA system with a modern, supported solution that would provide world-class technical and operational functionality
  • Develop plant and company standards

Challenges

  • Reconfiguring 300 000 I/O and redeveloping 530 SCADA screens without loss of production
  • Prove the effectiveness of the chosen solution against all others and the ability of Lonmin to own the solution
  • Tight time and budget constraints
  • Concurrent running of old and new systems
  • Simultaneous development by multiple SIs

Results

  • Enhanced performance
  • Single set of standards
  • Easier maintainability
  • Superior reporting and delivery
  • Fully-supported, constantly current software
  • Ensured continued operation of production processes

"In my view, the most outstanding features of this new system include the management of standards, its scalability and the ability to do development work on multiple fronts with multiple SIs simultaneously."
