Our customer, a main manufacturer of whisky and spirits, required to optimize and simplify the cereal intake process in their distillery. The project included the removal and replacement of obsolete equipment and the optimization of the control system.

The scope of the project included replacement of an old MCC and the design and installation of Siemens S7 based process control system. In addition, the new S7 system required integration with the existing ABB DCS. Following implementation and testing, site installation of MCC and commissioning took place. Solution developed by Elite has additionally incorporated a client/server SCADA based network and a HMI for Process Visualization, Management, Maintenance, Diagnostics and Standard features for alarming, trending and user configuration.

The new system employed has been optimized simplified compared to the previous iteration. The new process control equipment should be more efficient and reliable. Operation and maintenance personnel have improved monitoring and diagnostic capability available in runtime; this in turn should help reduce plant downtime.

Expanding on the knowledge and expertise gained by Elite, we are once again proud to offer a solution to one of our key clients and build upon our relationship with our partners.
