TEAMWORK KEEPS BRINKS OUTTA THE SH#T

Brink’s know chicken. They’ve been putting chicken on the plates of kiwis for over 60 years. Their primary operation in Christchurch has over 25000 chickens.
You could just imagine how much effluent that is…sorry, but we had to go there for this story! Brinks recently engaged local Wastewater gurus Apex Environmental to help them come up with a better wastewater solution for the operation.

Given our long-standing partnership with Apex and our previous success in this area, they brought us in on the job to help with automation of the wastewater solution.

We created a fully featured PLC/HMI solution which we incorporated into their MCC, creating a seamless, fully-automated product. The solution included over 50 I/O, two 22kW Softstarters and one 40kW VSD. It also has built in remote access to allow the Apex Engineers to dial in whenever required to tweak the operation of the plant and address any alarms – wherever and whenever they happen to be. The solution gave Apex a significant cost saving in not only capital expenditure, but also in ease of project management; with on-time and on-budget delivery and only having to deal with one point of contact for all their electrical engineering and design requirements.

The engineering teams at N2P Controls and Apex Environmental both share a similar drive for perfection and a commitment to getting the job done right, within the timeframes and budget requirements. Yep, it’s fair to say we make a bloody good team. Maybe we can help you too?
