Intellect Provide Control Systems Services at Fortescue's North Star Project

Perth based Intellect Systems Pty Ltd (Intellect Systems), a subsidiary of ASX listed Resource Development Group Ltd (RDG), have been awarded the process control systems configuration engineering services contract for Stage 1 of the North Star Magnetite project (North Star), located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Intellect Systems were awarded the contract this month by IB Operations Pty Ltd, an operating subsidiary of Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (Fortescue).

Stage 1 of the North Star Project will involve the development of a small scale plant, designed to utilise and provide new technology to deliver a magnetic iron concentrate at low operating costs. In addition to prior awards on North Star for the supply of communications cubicles, distribution boards, marshalling panels and junction boxes, Intellect Systems will be providing control systems design, software development, testing and commissioning services for this project as part of an integrated engineering team. The North Star site is located 120km from Australia’s largest export port, Port Hedland and 25km from Fortescue’s heavy haul railway.

Jeff Brill, Managing Director of RDG commented, “Intellect Systems are proud to be a part of this milestone project and are committed to working with Fortescue to implement this ground breaking proof of concept. With the recent announcement of the acquisition of Central Systems Pty Ltd who have the structural, mechanical, piping construction contract for North Star, RDG has an important role in the delivery of this exciting project”

“Intellect Systems are motivated by the freedom to challenge the traditional approach to systems design and execution and embrace innovation, paving the way for a successful outcome and setting the foundation for North Star Stage 2. Intellect Systems are also delighted to be delivering a complete end to end industrial technology solution, encompassing the design and supply of communications and electrical cabinets together with the control systems engineering and commissioning. This approach allows us to return tangible value to Fortescue and fast track the project into operation through the use of our integrated project delivery systems”, he added.
