Schenck Process networks two further locations for LafargeHolcim Ltd

The innovative dispatch automation system LOGiQ® from Schenck Process is continuing its success story. In recent weeks, the Darmstadt-based specialist in measuring and process technology has implemented the technology at two Russian locations operated by Swiss construction material group LafargeHolcim Ltd: the cement works at Ferzikovo and Voskresensk. This has resulted in the plants being upgraded to the LafargeHolcim Group’s Smart Factory standard.

Intelligent and flexible networking

LOGiQ® networks the local intelligence of matched hardware and software modules for logistics solutions in the bulk materials and cargo industry. The system automates processes and flows of goods at all points between ordering and dispatch. At the same time, the software controls information flowing from and to production processes and commercial systems and interactions with the people and machines involved. If the customer’s requirements change, the system can be flexibly adapted to new needs.

At Ferzikovo, the LafargeHolcim Group is currently engaged in a major investment project for the Russian market. The plant has three incoming and outgoing scales as well as 11 loading stations for loose cement and two bag loading stations. Schenck Process converted the parking lot with registration, the incoming and outgoing scales and all loading points for fully automatic, unmanned operation. Self-service terminals for registration and weighing were installed in the entrance and exit areas. In the loose loading area, a LOGiQ® loading terminal including the DISOMAT® Tersus weighing electronics with Profibus interface to the PLC and ultrasonic sensors were installed. In Voskresensk the conversion work included the parking lot with registration, incoming and outgoing scales, three loading scales and one loading point for packaged goods.

Successful through lasting partnership

Commissioning passed off smoothly and quickly at both locations. Schenck Process ensured smooth delivery operations at both plants throughout the installation and commissioning process. Incoming silo trucks for loose loading – more than 300 daily in Ferzikovo alone – continued to be processed around the clock.

Throughout the entire project, both partners benefited from the experience gained through previous succ
essful collaboration. Since 2013, Schenck Process has implemented the LOGiQ® dispatch automation system at various plants belonging to the Swiss construction material group, including 18 cement works in eastern Europe.
