ABB recently won an order to provide additional integrated digital automation and electrical equipment for Tan Thang Cement Joint Stock Company’s greenfield cement plant in the Nghe An province in Vietnam, 250 km south of Hanoi. This delivery is a follow-up order to the initial automation and electrical systems delivery from ABB for this site, which is currently under construction. When completed, the plant will produce two million tons of cement per year.
The investors in the Tan Thang Cement project are focused on incorporating the latest Industry 4.0 technology into the new plant. ABB Ability, which is ABB’s cross-industry digital offering, will help to provide integration of all plant systems for efficient, safe operation and a reliable electrical supply for all processes.
This follow-up order includes a 110kV AIS Substation (Air Insulated Substation), with a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system based on ABB Ability System 800xA for Power Control, as well as telecommunications, and high voltage primary and secondary equipment to support the electrical infrastructure. ABB will also deliver power transformers, distribution transformers, an Intelligent Motor Control Center, Auxiliary Control Center, Emergency Diesel Generator, DC power supply, various field devices, and related commissioning services.
ABB’s initial delivery included ABB Ability System 800xA DCS (Distributed Control System) to integrate control, electrical and communication systems for optimal visibility into all processes for stable production and efficent use of raw materials and energy. It also included ABB Ability Knowledge Manager and Expert Optimizer software, as well as basic communication and electrical system infrastructure and equipment.
The project is scheduled to be commissioned in late 2019.
