"With Metso DNA we have a plant that is easy to use and control. When new crusher operators are recruited, our challenge has been how to quickly teach them the basics of the crushing process. Metso DNA is now an excellent tool for ensuring that basic level of knowledge," says Jan Liimatainen, Regional Director at NCC Roads. “We also wanted to improve work satisfaction and safety with the help of a dust-free control cabin featuring air conditioning and wireless camera screens showing real-time material flow images from all four crushers.”
Metso’s delivery included comprehensive plant automation: a plant-wide automation system for crushing and screening process control and monitoring, a control cabin, electricity installation and process data collection with a reporting system. Maintenance software for keeping track of both planned and conducted maintenance actions was also included.
The new unit is one of the most advanced NCC crushing plants in Scandinavia, and it produces different types of aggregates.
