Process optimization systems for 19 cement plants in Brazil

ABB signed a contract with Votorantim Cimentos to ­provide its cpmPlus Expert Optimizer process optimization ­system, for eleven new cement plants being built in Brazil and other Latin American countries. ABB will also upgrade the prior ­generation Linkman system with Expert Optimizer at eight other existing plants. Some of these units are part of ­Votorantim’s ongoing “third wave” project, which further ­develops a mining exploration technique to optimize low content ores on large deposits. “We at ABB are delighted to work with Votorantim to support this new initiative, as well as help them to expand and modernize their current production capabilities” said ­Marcelo Schumacker, General Manager of Cement and Mining at ABB.
