Ingeteam will supply two frequency converters and motors for the mining sector in West Africa

INGEDRIVE MV700 medium-voltage frequency converters will be used in a gold mine in West Africa. 

In the second quarter of 2017, Ingeteam was awarded a contract for the delivery of two air-cooled, medium-voltage frequency converters from the INGEDRIVE MV700 family, with a 24P DFE diode rectifier and dv/dt output filter.   The converters will be used to drive a SAG mill and a ball mill, each with a power of 6MW. Both drives have an output voltage of 6.6kV and they are destined for the Greenfield gold mine in West Africa. 

Besides the converters and induction motors, Ingeteam’s scope of supply includes the design and delivery of the drive system for a SAG mill and a ball mill. The equipment and auxiliary elements will be delivered during the second quarter of 2018.
