“ABB’s value proposition for the cement sector is the ability to offer and execute integrated process and power automation solutions, backed by years of expertise,” said Madhav Vemuri, ABB Senio Vice President for Industrial Automation. “We specifically help optimise energy and raw material consumption, which are two major costs in the sector.”

ABB will undertake supply, erection, testing, and commissioning for the electrical distribution and ABB Ability 800xA automation system at the plant.

The electrical distribution system includes a 220 kV Switchyard with 20/25 MVA 220kV/11kV transformer, 11 kV board, Intelligent Motor Control Centre, distribution transformer, medium- and low- voltage capacitors and related accessories. System 800xA DCS will integrate control, electrical, and communication systems for optimal visibility into all processes for stable production and efficient use of raw materials and energy.

The new grinding plant forms part of Emami Cement investment in advanced and energy-efficient cement plants to help meet future demand for the building material in the Indian infrastructure market. The company is the flagship company of the Kolkata-based Emami Group.

“India’s infrastructure and housing is an integral part of our country’s growth,” said Vivek Chawla, CEO of Emami Cement. “We would like to ensure we contribute to the national cause, providing best-in-class quality cement to our consumers, at the same time being environmentally responsible by deploying world-class technology and manufacturing process in our plants.”
