MMK automates railway transport control
With the help of the new system, employees will be able to remotely control the movement of railway transport on the territory of the plant, track the presence or absence of cargo in the wagons and monitor their condition. The system allows users to determine where a particular car is located by its number (all cars of the internal and direct railway fleet are numbered and entered in the database), and also signals deviations and malfunctions. In addition, the system collects, processes and stores video information.
The railway transport automated control system is integrated into the video surveillance control safety complex for MMK's commodities and assets and all information on inconsistencies is shown round-the-clock in the operations control centre, which is able to make rapid responses in the event of breakdowns.
Currently, 116 video cameras at 25 railway stations feed into the automatic control system for railway transport. In Q1 2020, the project is due to be completed following the installation of 14 additional video cameras at two stations.
