CMR Philippines wins Holcim Philippines contract

Published by

CMR Philippines, an automation and control systems specialist, has won a contract to supply and install new power monitoring technology at one of Southeast Asia’s largest cement production plants.

The Lugait cement works in Misamis Oriental in the Philippines currently produces 2.13 million tpy. The scope of work at the plant covers the development, delivery, installation, testing, and networking of the electrical installation for a major new upgrade of power monitoring capabilities.

Current and voltage transformers are being supplied as part of a comprehensive package of engineering support that also sees CMR completing the integration and connection of plant-wide power monitoring to Siemens PCS 7 process control technology.

The contract comes as Holcim Philippines is investing almost US$300 million in increasing its production capacity across all of its plants by 30%, to 13 million tpy by 2020. This includes upgrading the Misamis Oriental site with the installation of new kilns, mills, and waste heat recovery systems. This is a move to support the country’s economic development and robust construction sector.

The Holcim Lugait work comes as CMR continues to expand the scope of operations for manufacturers requiring control, monitoring, and BMS technologies to provide critical operational reliability and performance requirements in harsh production environments.

CMR PH is part of the CMR Group, which designs, manufactures, and commissions automation, control system and turnkey project solutions for global industrial and renewable energy sectors, alongside specialist instrumentation for high power diesel engines.

“Winning the Holcim contract reflects the expertise we can bring to successfully delivering complex and technologically advanced industrial projects,” said Rojel Rivera, General Manger at CMR PH. “Our expansive yet integrated approach enables us to secure added value solutions through advanced, cost effective, and fully integrated control and monitoring systems.”
