Digicon Manufacture, Install and Commission Control Panel for A&P Falmouth’s Dry Dock Gates

Digicon recently completed the supply, installation and commissioning of a Bespoke Control Panel and Braked Motors to control the Dry Dock Gates at Falmouth Docks for A&P Falmouth.

Home to one of the world’s largest natural deep-water harbours, A&P’s Falmouth facility is the largest ship-repair complex in the UK.

Digicon chose the VACON® NXP AC drive as the heart of the control panel.  The drives are very well known to Digicon; their reliability in rugged environments made them the first choice for this project. They are proven to be excellent quality and the levels of support Digicon provide on Danfoss VLT® and VACON® products is second to none.

After an initial site visit followed by an extensive pre-installation survey, the control panel was manufactured by Digicon and work began with a senior Digicon engineer heading up the installation team, working closely with A&P Falmouth’s on-site engineers throughout the project.

The motors and control panel were installed and commissioned within two days and the dock gates were operating successfully immediately.

Steve Jones, Managing Director and Operations & Site Director for A&P in Falmouth said:

“The work was carried out in a professional manner and to budget.  We are extremely happy with the service provided by Digicon and look forward to working together in the future.”

Digicon manufactured, installed and commissioned the control panel with the VACON® NXP AC drive as the heart of the panel, which would control the Dry Dock Gates.
