After the implementation of the IT-Logistic Solution VAS by Fritz & Macziol, Ulm/Germany in the Holcim plants in the Philippines and Indonesia, the solution was implemented successful in Morocco by Holcim for the first time. The pilot installation was undertaken in the cement plant Settat, which is located between Casablanca and Marrakesh. The project was carried out on the basis of the „Global Framework Agreement“, that Holcim and FuM have sealed two years ago. Since June 2015, the VAS system runs successfully. The start of production was realized in the second quarter of the current year.
After the successful implementation in Settat, the Moroccon Holcim plants in Oujda, Fes and Nador are supposed to be the next plants to be equipped with VAS. Besides the software and services, Fritz & Macziol delivered the full infrastructure for the project. This includes not only the IT-Hardware like printers or large displays for the control room but also barriers and signal lights for traffic control within the plant.
