Axon Power & Control have helped to speed up recycling in Cork with the recent completion of the controls system automation for Greenstar.
Greenstar’s Cork facility is a state of the art Materials Recycling Facility which has been fitted out with the most up to date technology in order to minimise landfill waste and maximise recyclable extraction.
Upon consultation with the plants Technical Manager Axon Power & Control designed an electrical control system specific to the needs of the plant which includes remote operator stations and the availability for online monitoring of operations.

The online monitoring of operations allows Axon Power & Control to make any changes necessary to the plants operations without physically having to send a man onsite, the benefit of this means quicker turnaround times and lower maintenance costs for the customer.
The remote operator stations enable staff on site to make alterations to the recycling process during operations so for example they can alter the speed of a conveyor belt etc.
In addition to the design build and manufacture of the controls system for the recycling facility Axon Power & Control also completed the electrical Installation and commissioning of the plant.
Upon completion of the Greenstar Project Pearse McGrath from Greenstar said

‘Axon Power & Control’s installation crews and software people are wonderful and the project was completed on time and to budget.’

Commenting on the finished Project John Donaghy General Manager at Axon Power & Control said
