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 of 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 2 million tpy of cement.

The investors in the Tan Thang Cement project are focused on incorporating the latest Industry 4.0 technology into the new plant. ABB AbilityTM, which is ABB’s cross-industry digital offering, will help to provide integration of all plant systems.

“We are aiming to have the most modern cement production plant, equipped with the latest digital technology, that will help us to achieve our production and efficiency goals,” said Hoang Anh Tuan, General Director of Tan Thang Cement. “ABB is helping us to build a strong digital foundation for the systems at our plant, to help us succeed from our first day of production.”

This follow-up order includes a 110kV Air Insulated Substation, with a 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 centre, auxiliary control centre, emergency diesel generator, DC power supply, various field devices, and related commissioning services.

ABB’s initial delivery included ABB Ability System 800xA Distributed Control System to integrate control, electrical and communication systems for optimal visibility into all processes for stable production and efficient 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.
