ABB has been awarded a contract valued at over $19 million by Copper Mountain Mining Corp, to deliver energy efficient drive systems for the Copper Mountain project in Canada. Located in southern British Columbia, the Copper Mountain mine had produced 1,700 Mlb of copper before it closed in 1996. Copper Mountain is building a new mill and re-opening the mine, with production expected to begin in 2011. Annual output is estimated at 105 Mlb of copper in the first five years.ABB’s scope of supply for the project includes three variable speed drive systems for a dual pinion SAG mill and two ball mills. Each low speed drive system has power of 2 x 6,340 kW at 200 rpm. ABB is also providing MV ACS6000 multidrives, motors and transformers as well as an E-house including motor control centre (MCC) and control systems for the mill auxiliary, and related project and engineering services.Variable speed operation optimises the grinding process and is ideal for ores with varying grinding properties. This leads to significant optimisation potential for the plant design, as well as for its operation. Variable speed drives use less electricity, providing significant energy and operating cost savings, as well as high system efficiency and high system availability.“Innovative energy saving ABB technologies, such as our variable speed drive systems, combined with our industry knowledge and experience, provide our minerals and mining customers with the solutions and support they need to significantly improve their productivity, energy efficiency and process reliability,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation division.ABB’s variable speed mill drives use direct torque control (DTC) to deliver precise and strong torque control during start up and during cascading of the material. DTC technology extends gear life up to 30%, by reducing wear and tear. ABB’s dedicated mill control system allows for smooth starts, reducing stress on the equipment and features critical monitoring during the starting period, protecting the mill against damage by the dropping of a frozen charge. Torque and load sharing between motors is adjusted, as needed, 40,000 times per second, minimising backlash.

STATIN said the decline is mainly attributable to an increase in the number of persons employed and a simultaneous reduction in the number of persons in the labour force. The country’s unemployment rate has fallen to a new record low of 8.4 per cent, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) Labour Force Survey for July 2018. The country’s unemployment rate has fallen to a new record low of 8.4 per cent, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) Labour Force Survey for July 2018.This out-turn is 1.3 per cent lower than the 9.7 per cent recorded for the April 2018 Survey. It is also 2.9 percentage points lower than the rate of 11.3 per cent for July 2017.STATIN said the decline is mainly attributable to an increase in the number of persons employed and a simultaneous reduction in the number of persons in the labour force.The Institute noted that the July 2018 out-turn reflects a fall in the rate for males, down 2.2 percentage points to 5.8 per cent, and females, down 3.8 percentage points to 11.4 per cent.Additionally, STATIN said the unemployment rate among youth, aged 14 to 24, decreased by 5.3 per cent to 22.2 per cent, relative to the 27.5 per cent out-turn recorded in July 2017.This, the Institute noted, was influenced by a decline in the number of young people in the labour force.The agency indicated that the rate for both genders declined by 5.2 per cent in July 2018, with the figure for males falling to 17.4 per cent compared to 28.1 per cent for females.The agency pointed out that the number of unemployed persons declined by 27.7 per cent to 111,800.This reflected a 28.6 per cent decrease in the number of unemployed males to 41,800 and a 27.2 per cent fall in the number of unemployed females to 70,000. The total number of unemployed youth decreased by 14,600 persons to 45,200.Meanwhile, STATIN said the overall number of employed individuals rose to 1,226,400 as at July 2018, representing an increase of 12,800 persons.A breakdown of the figures shows that the number of males employed increased by 5,900 to 681,800, while female employment rose by 6,900 to 544,600.STATIN advised that the total labour force stood at 1,338,200 persons, a decrease of 2.2 per cent in July 2018, compared to the corresponding period last year.“Accordingly, the participation rate declined from 65.5 per cent to 64 per cent. The male labour force, which comprised 723,600 persons in July 2018 decreased by 1.5 per cent relative to July 2017 while the female labour force decreased by three per cent to 614,600 persons,” a STATIN statement outlined. Story Highlights This out-turn is 1.3 per cent lower than the 9.7 per cent recorded for the April 2018 Survey. It is also 2.9 percentage points lower than the rate of 11.3 per cent for July 2017.
