FMG: Wet front end

Gittos, Terry (2013) FMG: Wet front end. Internship Report, Murdoch University.



During the final stages of a bachelor of engineering at Murdoch University students are required to undertake a thesis or internship. This is a final assessment that ensures the student can draw from their past material to produce a large project or experiment. This will in turn prepare the student for a work placement in the industry.

This report is a final document for an engineering internship at Motherwell Automation that started in semester two of 2012. The internship project titled FMG: Wet Front End involves the upgrade to an iron ore processing facility in the Pilbara region of north Western Australia. The upgrade was a project acquired by Motherwell which included the installation of several new section that required electrical and automation systems. For this upgrade a large section of work involved designing the SCADA or human machine interface that the future process engineers at FMG would use. This was the majority of work completed by the internship student and this report will indicate this.
