Automation of the Sault Brénaz restitution group

Automation of the Sault Brénaz restitution group

AI won the CNR (Compagnie Nationale du Rhône) contract for the renovation of the Sault Brénaz hydro restitution group.

The main objective was to replace the 3 traditional relay cabinets by a PLC that would manage operating modes and safety of the group.

Operators now have a reliable, efficient and perfectly maintainable automation.

The development of the PLC program was fully tested on platform by implementing simulation of the operative part. The automated system was fully tested on platform to secure and facilitate commissioning.

Stacker robot

Stacker robot

AI has made for a French aircraft manufacturer, the retrofit of the raw materials warehouse stacker robot.
The main objective of the project was the continuation of the installation:

  • Renewal of electrical equipment and obsolete automation
  • Rewriting of the PLC program
  • Modernization of the link with the higher level (traceability, inventory management)
  • Stabilization of the whole

AI is responsible for improvements in security but also in mechanics, in order to reduce noise in the workshop.

Automation and supervision systems for a surface treatment line

Automation and supervision systems for a surface treatment line

AI was selected to overhaul the automation and supervision systems of a surface treatment line for a French aircraft manufacturer.

This system manages:

  • Manufacturing order imports from the production monitoring system
  • Post-manufacturing data export (log files)
  • Robot scheduling according to the parts and itineraries requested
  • User management
  • Management of non-production services

As an added safety feature, the PLC is capable of finishing the treatment in progress even in the event of a supervision system failure.

Mali energy - MES international, pumping station and treatment of drinking water

Mali energy - MES international, pumping station and treatment of drinking water

AI has made on behalf of the national operator Energie du Mali, and in relation with MES international, the renovation of pumping stations and treatment of drinking water in cities SAN and GAO, with:

  • On-site investigations as pre-studies
  • Studies of automation and electrical engineering, energy measurements, starters
  • The achievement of control cabinets and distribution boards
  • Training, maintenance and operation
  • Commissioning
Development and supervision of a new atomization line

Development and supervision of a new atomization line

Relating to his innovation activity, Poudres Hermillon built a new atomization line, able to produce extra fine powders of aluminum, using high pressure nitrogen.

AI developed the PLC program and the HMI of this new atomization line, separated in two batches:

  • Compression and recycling of nitrogen  
  • Pneumatic transport
 Highway tunnels - Conception and development of generic tools in automation

Highway tunnels - Conception and development of generic tools in automation

AI has been contracted for the design and development of generic automation objects for ventilation and energy applications (LV/HV) as part of the overhaul of the centralized technical management system for tunnels on the A8 highway. The system enables the delivery of longitudinal ventilation, LV distribution, and constant HV power.

The hardware architecture is made up of redundant PLCs with remote I/O modules.
