Your turnkey solutions in automation and energy management 

Grande Arche, Paris La défense

Grande Arche, Paris La défense

AI provided the electrical management and supervision system for the northern leg of the Grande Arche de la Défense building in Paris. The uniqueness of the project stemmed from the building’s high-rise status, which requires a power-supply switchover time of less than five seconds for priority connections such as elevators and fire-fighting equipment. The PLCs and supervision software are designed to provide the maintenance staff with easy troubleshooting via clear signals indicating potentially-faulty equipment. The system also offers possible combined operation off of the main energy grid and the main backup generator.

Management of an investment project of renovation of transformers of rectifiers

Management of an investment project of renovation of transformers of rectifiers

For several years, AI works with different engineering services of a worldwide mining group. Over one year long, at the plant of Saint Jean de Maurienne, we manage an investment project of renovation of transformers of rectifiers.


 

Assembling glass syringes machines

Assembling glass syringes machines

AI has made reliable a special machine for assembling glass syringes for a company of pharmaceutical sector.

The implementation of 6 Keyence cameras can now check for the presence and position of components to be assembled. And the failure rate is remarkably reduced to reach a production of xx syringes per hour.

The existing PLC developed on a platform and the terminal operator have been modified to incorporate this change.

Generic electrical loop reconfiguration system

Generic electrical loop reconfiguration system

AI won a contract to develop a generic electrical loop reconfiguration system. This generic system can be installed at any facility that has the appropriate architecture (up to 5 loops and 50 TALUS T200i-equipped substations).

Main functions:

  •  Site architecture is determined via the configuration MMI.
  •  Loops are automatically reconfigured after a fault.

The system is online at the port of Calais (France).

Renovation of automation and BMS suervision of an industrial site

Renovation of automation and BMS suervision of an industrial site

AI has made the renovation of facilities BMS for the site of a worldwide groupe of electricity and energy management field.

This project was to replace the automatic management of heating / cooling of some buildings on the site.
These facilities are responsible for managing HVAC, energy production and technical alarms.
The conduct and the provision of information and alarms monitoring is performed by a dedicated hardware BMS.
The renovated facilities was of a sensitive nature to some, guard (Alarms site), Restaurant (Switching in a very short time), replacement of hydraulic components.
AI took over the entire project and manage the activities of the different actors in the BMS (Electricians, pipe) while performing automation.

These works can now ensure optimal management of the facilities

Development of a ladle for the filtration of molten aluminium

Development of a ladle for the filtration of molten aluminium

AI was entrusted with the development of a liquid aluminum filtrating vessel (chlorine and argon treatment) of a degasser machine. This version is different from the one normally commercialized by the customer. Indeed the heating resistors have been replaced by gas burners, only one rotor is injecting chlorine and the vessel can tilt with the lid closed for production reasons.

Exemples of AI's interventions:

  • Platform tests + electrical cabinets testing
  • .Project documentation updating
  • Operator manual
