In the first quarter of 2019, Ingeteam was awarded a contract for the delivery of two air-cooled, medium voltage variable speed drives from the INGEDRIVE MV700 family, with a 24P DFE diode rectifier and dv/dt output filter.
INGEDRIVE MV700 medium-voltage variable speed drives will be installed at greenfield gold mine in West Africa.
The variable speed drives will be used to drive one SAG mill and one ball mill, each with a power of 6MW. Both VSD’s have input voltage of 11 kV and output voltage of 6.6kV and they are destined for the greenfield gold mine in West Africa.
Besides the two medium-voltage variable speed drives, Ingeteam’s scope of supply includes two mill motors induction type and the design of the drive system. The equipment will be delivered during the fourth quarter of 2019.
INGEDRIVE™ is available with power ratings up to 44 MVA, from 400V to 690V in low voltage and 3 kV to 6.9 kV in medium voltage, offering great performance, reliability, together with a user-friendly interface.
