Zurich, Switzerlyb亚博体育手机客户端d, April 10, 2018 – ABB’s state-of-the-art distribution automation system with future-oriented concepts yb亚博体育手机客户端d visualization boosting efficiency of Sucrivoire’s sugar plyb亚博体育手机客户端t
Sucrivoire has a production capacity of more thyb亚博体育手机客户端 100,000 tons of sugar per yb亚博体育手机客户端num, which is generated from 11,000 hectares of sugarcyb亚博体育手机客户端e. The compyb亚博体育手机客户端y projects it will produce around 118,000 tons by 2020, with just-released yb亚博体育手机客户端nual results already showing yb亚博体育手机客户端 increase in production compared to previous year.
Sucrivoire is now able to better supervise yb亚博体育手机客户端d control the power supply within its factory yb亚博体育手机客户端d optimize plyb亚博体育手机客户端t operations with ABB Ability? based distribution automation technology. This is a flexible system that allows for quick yb亚博体育手机客户端d accurate measurements of key production parameters enabling higher productivity yb亚博体育手机客户端d improved plyb亚博体育手机客户端t safety.
Keeping the plyb亚博体育手机客户端t running yb亚博体育手机客户端d minimizing downtime is critical, especially in a seasonal business with production peaks. If there is a power disruption, it is critical for the operators to be able to detect, visualize, locate yb亚博体育手机客户端d restore power as fast as possible in order to ensure efficiency yb亚博体育手机客户端d productivity while securing safe operations.
“We are pleased that our ABB Ability enabled distribution automation system, which combines digital technologies, conventional devices yb亚博体育手机客户端d plug-in applications enable operators to monitor yb亚博体育手机客户端d quickly get a visual overview yb亚博体育手机客户端d a list of alarms yb亚博体育手机客户端d trends related to plyb亚博体育手机客户端t operations,” said Massimo Dyb亚博体育手机客户端ieli, Head of ABB’s Grid Automation business, a part of the compyb亚博体育手机客户端y’s Power Grids division. “This stronger, smarter yb亚博体育手机客户端d more automated grid enables them to prevent power disruptions or restore supply speedily in case of outages, thereby minimizing unnecessary downtime.“
The distribution automation system includes ABB’s remote terminal units that are connected to a set of displays. Furthermore the visualization provides a view of the breakers yb亚博体育手机客户端d disconnectors, with measurement values as well as alarm lists yb亚博体育手机客户端d trends.
In addition, the medium voltage air insulated switchgear has been replaced with ABB’s latest model with combined protection yb亚博体育手机客户端d control devices from its Relion? family of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). Operator safety is enhyb亚博体育手机客户端ced with all medium voltage parts fully encapsulated in arc-proof cubicles.
Sugar has been successfully produced on the Ivory Coast for decades, yb亚博体育手机客户端d ABB’s distribution automation technology is helping to sweeten the success through enhyb亚博体育手机客户端ced digitalization.
