ABB has completed the automation project at the Podolsky cement

ABB has announced the successful completion of the project to install the integrated power supply systems, control and automation in the factory PJSC "Podolsky cement", which is part of the Irish group CRH. Now the customer has the most powerful production line in Ukraine, the performance of which — 7.5 million tons of cement per day.


Among the equipment that ABB has delivered and installed at the customer's plant, in particular serednevoltnye switches, distribution transformers, intelligent low-voltage motor control system (MNSiS MCC), low-voltage variable speed drives, measuring instruments, gas analyzers, production management system MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and system 800xA for process control of the plant. Part of ABB's comprehensive solutions are engineering, installation and commissioning services, training of the client, construction traffic control and operator seats, as well as the supply and installation of the necessary equipment from other manufacturers.

After the launch of the new production line number 7, the old six were conserved. This is due to the fact that the performance of the modern cement production line "dry" method is almost the same as the total capacity of the old six. Line number 7 is also equipped with a highly efficient filtration system emissions, and consumes much less power. Its use will help the plant to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 750 tonnes per year. Such high performance and emissions abatement are provided, in particular by ABB equipment and systems that help increase the effectiveness of and optimize the process.

The project of modernization of the plant PAO "Podolsky cement" the world's first project implemented in accordance with the procedure 2, Joint Implementation (Track 2 Joint Implementation), a registered UNFCCC (United Nations Secretariat on Climate Change). This mechanism is defined by the Kyoto Protocol in order to stimulate investment in projects that reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.

"From the first days of the modernized factory consumes 50% less fuel than the production of cement" wet "method. Energy consumption for the production of clinker decreased by 15%. Further optimization of the production processes will help us improve these figures, "- said Eamon Geraghty, chief technology officer," Materials »CRH Europe.

For information: ABB — a leader in technology for energy and automation. ABB technologies enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while reducing negative impacts on the environment.
