Chettinad Cement
About The Customer
Chettinad Cement as part of Chettinad Group is a major supplier of cement in southern India.
The Solution

Chettinad upgraded Line 2 control system to ABB System 800xA, including the latest human machine interface. Drives, motors and transmitters were also employed to ensure safety operation and optimal performance. ABB gas analyzer was used to monitor product quality and nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx) and other gas components compliance. The Knowledge Manager solution was used to manage production and quality.
