Tenova has selected ABB to supply and install a comprehensive drives and automation package for Southeast Asia tinplate manufacturer Perstima at its new electrolytic tinning and tin free steel line in Malvar in Philippines. Project scope includes the ABB Ability System 800xA Distributed Control System, which integrates control, electrical and communication systems for optimal visibility into all processes for stable production and the efficient use of raw materials and energy, plus the compact, high performance AC800 PEC controller, with control desks and posts. In addition, ABB will supply its Collaborative Production Management for Metals solution to optimize all aspects of process and production planning, asset monitoring and manufacturing execution. ABB’s state of the art ACS880 low voltage multidrives and motor control center switchgear complete the package.
When installation and commissioning is complete, Perstima will benefit from a compact, fully integrated, easy-to-use control, automation and drives system designed for flexibility, durability and optimal productivity. The new solutions will be operational in June 2021.
