The quick implementation of the entire plant and the successful operational launch can be attributed to more than just the extensive digitalisation strategy. The close cooperation of everyone involved also played a major role.
“As the Main Automation Vendor (MAV) and Main Electrical Vendor (MEV) from the very beginning, Siemens was not only the technology supplier but also the development partner,” said Michael Freyny, Executive General Manager for the Digital Factory and Process Industries and Drives divisions, Siemens Australia.
“We greatly valued the partnership and felt it was essential,” says Worrell.
As Siemens’ solution partner for the project, Mescada also played a crucial role in contributing its expertise in IT infrastructure, Process Control Systems and Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) systems. Another contributor was CET Group as the Process and Mechanical Designers, with 3D modelling, Process identifier (PID) and datasheets.
“Siemens’ enormous digital enterprise experience and its ability to offer the best possible service as a globally operating corporation, in combination with our partners’ solutions were the factors that led to the project’s success,” Freyny sums up.
