Ausenco has been selected as a finalist in the 2013 PACE Zenith Awards for our project ‘Expanding Gold Mine Processing Plant’ in the Mining, Minerals & Exploration category.

The PACE Zenith Awards are presented by PACE magazine (Process and Control Engineering), the official magazine of the Institute of Instrumentation and Control Automation (IICA). Ausenco was nominated for our work on the control system for the Chatree Gold Mine Project in Thailand.

The upgraded control system for the mine focused on the communication failover strategy, intuitive operation and easy maintainability. It was crucial that the system was maintainable by local personnel as the majority of the mine sites are in remote locations and it takes more than 24 hours to travel to the sites.
