ABB wins $25-million order for Vietnamese cement project
Zurich, Switzerland – ABB has won an order worth $25 million from Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation (Vicem) for equipment to maximize productivity, monitor energy use and minimize energy consumption at a new cement plant. The Binh Phuoc cement factory will be built about 130 kilometers north of Ho Chi Minh City and produce 5,500 tons of clinker, a primary ingredient of cement, per day. The factory is scheduled for commissioning in first quarter of 2009.
The scope of ABB’s order includes engineering, construction and commissioning services, as well as overall project management supervision. The equipment ordered includes a 110-kilovolt (kV) distribution substation, automation equipment, motors, drives and instrumentation. ABB will also provide its Extended Automation System 800xA for process control, collaborative production management systems and other auxiliary equipment. The order was booked in the fourth quarter 2007.
This is the latest in a series of contracts ABB has supplied to Vicem since 1997. Most recently, ABB won an order to provide a similar scope of supply for the Phu Huu clinker grinding project.
