Oman: Plant Automation Digital Control Systems to Modernize OCC's Cement Plant in Oman
Oman Cement Company (OCC) installs a state-of-the-art digital solution at its cement plant. ABB Ability System 800xA is to optimize performance on all three process lines.
Zurich/Switzerland — Automation specialist ABB has built on a 40-year relationship with leading cement producer Oman Cement Company SAOG (OCC) in delivering the latest digital control systems to boost operational efficiency, increase availability, lower costs and drive sustainability. The Muscat-based cement factory, which has an annual cement production of 3.5 million metric tons, now has the latest version of ABB Ability System 800xA, which integrates its three process lines into the single digital platform. The company has also replaced older controllers in their final lifecycle phase with AC800M models.
Teams from Oman Cement Company and ABB Switzerland collaborated to complete the engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the systems. The company secured two separate contracts for the work with OCC. ABB’s new system also has a solid foundation to build up digital applications and integrate other process areas of the OCC plant on the same single platform.
