From upgrade to expansion
At these concrete plants the job was “simple”: replace the old control system with a new one. These were necessary interventions, since the existing control systems were outdated and often no longer supported by or compatible with other components. But what do we mean by “simple”? Within the Process Solutions department, conversion projects like these are often compared to a brain transplant, where the functioning and performance of the patient is expected to be as high as it was before the operation, or even higher. Not only must everything be done meticulously and flawlessly, the entire converted installation must also be thoroughly tested before it becomes operational again. And here, too, in-depth preparation is absolutely essential. After all, when converting a plant, you want to encounter as few surprises as possible. So, the electrical diagrams are meticulously studied, and the software is programmed and tested in advance, as much as possible.
