When a Pharma co. wanted to modernize their DCS for their heating & cooling processes, our team developed a project schedule that aligned with their planned outages. The boiler migration was completed in the summer and the chiller migration in the winter to avoid shutting down the equipment when it was most critical.
One of the benefits with our team, they're backed by global Siemens support. With 377,000 employees in over 200 countries, there's no shortage of resources and expertise. So when a sweetener producer was looking for a DCS to fit their needs, we had the in-house sugar industry experts to find the right DCS solution.
It can feel risky when you're looking to upgrade your DCS. We work with customers to reduce these risks. When one chemical co. planned for an upgrade, we performed a "proof-of-concept" test on a decommissioned production line to validate the upgrade strategy before they implemented it on the operating lines.
Over years of DCS expansions and modernizations, control programs can become messy and complicated. Our project team worked with one chemical plant to standardize their code and embed help files in any remaining custom code. This improved their ability to understand, update and troubleshoot the DCS operation.
When you're looking for a DCS to meet your plant's needs, you'll want a partner that knows the DCS inside and out. We work exclusively with Siemens DCS systems and have access to developers of the hardware and software. When a refinery was modernizing their DCS, we were able to develop a custom cable solution that shortened their plant outage.
Support for PCS 7 doesn't end when the initial installation is complete. One chemical customer recognized the benefit of local Siemens customer service so they chose PCS 7 to replace their 3rd party DCS and utilized service contracts to receive ongoing technical support.
Overwhelmed by the thought of modernizing your DCS? Completing it in multiple phases can feel more manageable. Our team used this approach when a distillery modernized their legacy APACS+ to PCS 7. This helped the distiller work within their yearly budget and aligned the project execution with planned outages.
Many people can be involved in a DCS installation. Our project team has experience coordinating with 3rd parties to complete the projects successfully. When a Pharma company was implementing a new PCS 7 system, they relied on Siemens to collaborate with EPCs and general contractors to install the DCS on budget and on time.
