Project: Design, panel build, software development, FAT, Install and commission for various fire and gas detection and HVAC systems for modular buildings.

Predominantly using Det-Tronics and Siemens components to detect fire and gas and control HVAC operations within modular switchroom type buildings within the West Qurna oil field.

Provided full software development and commissioning using the EQP controller with the S3 software package.


Project: Design, software development, build, and worldwide commissioning fo various bulk material handling machines.

The shiploader machines utilise PLC and HMI technology to provide a mobile loading system, and are currently in use in countries such as Peru, Chile, USA, Finland, UK, UAE and Bahrain. Each control system is designed to bespoke customer requirements.

"For all contracts you have carried out for B&W your technical performance has been excellent and your service is second to none."

Project: Humber Suspension Bridges Dehumidification Project

Following site surveys it was discovered that the cores of the suspension cables were being corroded at an unacceptable rate. To correct the problem and help prolong the life of the bridge we worked closely with Munters to design, develop software, build panels and install the control systems to condition the air being passed over the bridge's wrapped suspension cables. The controls equipment was installed in plenum chambers located along and under the bridge structure. Siemens PLCs, HMIs and VSDs were used to monitor and produce the air movements at the optimum humidity, temperature and velocity.

"As an international air treatment specialist we work in many different industries with many different applications. MD controls has been a supplier to us for many years. Their flexibility, speed of response and ability to interpret and enhance client requests make them an ideal partner for our varied and often demanding requirements. We also value their open and honest approach to business, which is particularly important when dealing with software, controls and site-based work. The controls and installation work they supplied in support of our successful projects to dehumidify the Severn, Forth  and Humber road bridges suspension cables is a good example of their capabilities." Alan Bessant, Operations Manager – Munters Limited
