In a statement, AIC said that it has been contracted to make improvements to the mill’s automation system and install new stand drives, a Rockwell ControlLogix PLC, control pulpits and a human-machine interface. AIC will also be involved in the software development, site installation and commissioning, in addition to providing start-up support and remote assistance.
