ABB MNS Digital in Cement Industry

Turkish cement manufacturer became one of the first companies in the world to establish ABB Ability ™ MNS Digital


MNS ™ Digital, one of ABB's latest innovations in smart electronics, edge computing and cloud technology, provides ease of access and real-time monitoring of real-time data to optimize operations at the Batısöke Cement plant.

Batısöke Cement, Turkey to the west of the cement manufacturing facility near the city of Aydin, scalable to optimize operations-ni and modular low voltage (LV) intelligent switching solution from ABB Ability ™ MNS Digital was one of the companies that use world-first. With MNS Digital, it is possible to save up to 30 on operating costs. Batısöke Cement is also the first company in the world to implement ABB Ability ™ condition monitoring for electrical systems in MNS Digital solutions.

One of the first cement plants of the country, the foundations of the facility were laid in 1955. In 2016, large-scale development and expansion works have been initiated, and new facilities of the factory are expected to be available this year.

In order to achieve a modern and energy efficient plant, Batısöke Cement was looking for ways to implement the latest technological innovations and to take advantage of improvements in automation and digitization in order to maintain process working times at the plant. In order to obtain the optimum total cost of ownership (TCO) for their assets, they also needed highly flexible products and solutions that could easily be updated when the requirements changed.

To meet all these requirements, ABB has provided a complete electrification solution with digital solutions that enable them to make informed choices, optimize maintenance cycles and prevent unplanned outages.

In order to manage operations proactively, MNS Digital installation of the new generation AG switchgear solution, which provides real-time data to support fast and accurate decision-making, has been provided. With its modular design, this switchgear can be scaled to support future expansion. In addition, MNS Digital, which is a completely protected system against arc errors, has increased the security of the facility personnel. Digital communication allows the operator to take necessary measures to avoid potential hazardous situations and equipment malfunctions and become safer as they are informed of any malfunctions.

Marco Tellarini, Global Product Group Manager of Electrification Products, Distribution Solutions: ™ With the new ABB Ability ™ status monitoring function for electrical systems that are part of the MNS Digital solution, customers have gained a deep insight into their operations and the data is available for every connected device. . Sis-tem is designed to reduce downtime in the plant by reducing the time between problem determination and resolution, and achieving better plant operation performance and optimum operating and maintenance costs.

With a leadership position in switchgear digitization and decades of experience, ABB's MNS Digital is a scalable and modular AG intelligent switchgear and motor control center. MNS Digital includes smart devices with a data interface that enables remote-to-use, monitoring and condition-based maintenance. It opens the door to new possibilities for smart devices, IoT (Internet of Things) and cloud technology, which gives the operator access to real-time data from their operations. MNS Digital can be connected to ABB's Ability ™ cloud platform, a local SCADA system (supervisory control and data collection) or ECMS (electrical control and monitoring system), Automation System 800xA or other types of distributed process control systems (DCSs).

In addition to providing ACS880 drives, motors, soft starters and 800xA control systems, ABB also offers UniGear Digital, an innovative medium voltage switchgear solution that is part of the ABB Ability ™ portfolio of solutions.
