Highest DTS Installation Completed in Chile

LIOS Technology has completed a power cable monitoring project at a South American mining facility of Codelco in Chile. The Korean made 220 kV, 630 mm 2 XLPE high voltage cable system includes  fibre optics in metal tube (FIMT) and supplies pumps, SAG mills (Semi-Autogenous Grinding) and other grinding equipment.

The Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) condition monitoring system is installed at the control room at 3500 m above sea level providing continuous thermal assessment of the highly loaded power circuit. Among LIOS Technology’s more than 2000 permanent DTS installations this is certainly the one at highest altitude.
